The 62GB miniature bayonet connector series offers designers important features not found in any other range of connectors. They are developed and manufactured entirely in the U.K. 62GB connectors have been well established globally on both industrial military communication projects, including Europe, Canada and India.
162GB Series crimp connectors share many of the features of 62GB solder connectors. Coupling is achieved with a triple-track bayonet locking system which gives positive alignment on all shell sizes. When connector halves are fully mated there is a definite click. Inspection holes in the coupling ring will then reveal the bayonet pins on the receptacle which are clearly marked in yellow. The Amphenol design means simplified removal of coupling rings for servicing or replacement as they are front demountable. In addition there is a rough grip heavy duty style for arduous conditions and a lever coupling ring which allows extremely close mounting of connectors. The method of sealing is the same as for 62GB connectors; using peripheral seals on the rubber inserts and sealing the mating shells with a square section gasket. Wire sealing is by multiple risers in the rear grommet.
