3. High Reliability ConnectorS

The harsh environments encountered by many applications in the space, military, medical, aerospace and automotive industries require highly robust and reliable components, especially connectors, which must cope with extreme operating conditions.

C&K’s portfolio of high-reliability (HiRel) connectors are specifically manufactured to withstand the electrical and mechanical stresses caused by factors such as vibration, extremes of temperature, corrosion, magnetism, and outgassing.

Our connectors are ESA/ESCC, MIL and NASA certified. We offer D-Sub, Micro-D and MTB1 formats as well as our innovative Space Splice system, and are suitable for a wide range of applications, including satellites/launchers, harnesses, payloads, antenna connexions, and many more.
