ITT Cannon Introduces High-Performing and Environmentally Sealed CTC Connector Series for Harsh Envi


IRVINE, C.A., – ITT Inc.'s (NYSE:ITT) Cannon brand has introduced a high-performance, ruggedized and cost-effective cable-to-cable connector series for reliable connections in harsh environments.

ITT Cannon's CTC Series is a simple-to-install, low-maintenance cable-to-cable interconnect solution, suitable for a wide variety of harsh environment vehicle applications where reliable signal circuits are critical to operating performance. The CTC Series utilizes the industry-proven Trident T2P and T3P contact technology that enables contacts to be hand inserted and eliminates the need for sealing plugs and wedge locks. CTC is ideal for use in under the hood electronics, inside the cab and in chassis, controllers and lighting systems in a variety of heavy and off-road vehicle applications including construction, mining and agriculture, as well in trucks, buses and other automotive electric/hybrid applications.
Demand for interconnect solutions with smaller space-saving footprints, reduced weight and higher pin counts is increasing due to the expansion of sensors and connectivity in heavy and off-road vehicles. The CTC Series is available up to a 24-way variant and can accommodate a wide variety of wiring schemes and harness layouts. The connector design features a thermoplastic UV-resistant housing, a simple locking mechanism keyed for blind mating, and a robust silicone rubber sealing system that delivers a tough, environmentally sealed connector with a sealing rating of IP69K.

"The CTC Series is designed to provide high performance, superior durability, and outstanding reliability in harsh environments while keeping the installation process as simple as possible," said Gary Ashurst, vice president and general manager of ITT's Transport & Industrial Connectors business. "CTC provides a versatile and cost-effective solution that can accommodate expanded range layouts up to 24-ways, and ideally complements our portfolio of versatile, rugged interconnect solutions meeting the diverse needs of our global customer base."

With ITT Cannon's CTC Series, establishing and maintaining a reliable connection requires no contact insertion tools and is simple to install and maintain. The ITT Cannon CTC Series accommodates a wire range between 24-16 AWG, 0.20 to 1.50 mm2 respectively, and prevents misalignment by employing a polarization key for blind mating. The series is available in, 8, 12, 16 and 24-way variants and utilizes ITT Cannon's industry-proven Trident T2P and T3P contact technology. The connector's brass and copper alloy contacts provide a highly reliable and durable electrical connection, ensuring high performance under all conditions.
