The TE Connectivity (TE) Circular Plastic Connectors (CPC) family enables engineers to design rugged products quickly and affordably.

The connectors have UL 94V-0 rated, heat- resistant plastic housings made of self- extinguishing thermoplastic material. They also enable design for either IP65 or IP67 sealing when needed.

The CPC connectors help to accelerate development and installation times, providing a broad and flexible portfolio of connector types. Users can quickly pair power and signal connections for a variety of input and output requirements when a hybrid approach is needed.

TE also enables designers to select the best contact termination for their application, choosing from hand, semi- automated or automatic termination tooling.

The CPC family provides a lightweight, all-plastic shell option as a lower-cost alternative to metal shell housings. In addition, removable crimp contacts and replaceable coupling rings make field repairs quick and easy to perform.

Mounting options include panel-mount, free-hanging and wire-to-board. The receptacle and plug housings accept Type III+ or size 20 signal contacts, Type XII power contacts or AMP POWERBAND contacts.
