Terrapin, SCE2

Intended for harsh environmental applications and used extensively in soldier communications, Terrapin is a miniature series of circular push-pull connectors. Within a rugged shell design Terrapin offers superior EMC performance and high environmental sealing to IP68. Resilient in severe battlefield situations the RoHS compliant black-silver plating is both low-luster and corrosion resistant. Featuring an optional locking mechanism, multiple shell sizes with up to 37 contacts and suitability for overmolding, Terrapin is the preferred choice for miniature connectors in military and other harsh environment applications.
