ITT Cannon APD series connectors were designed to meet ISO 15170 and European DIN 72585 requirements for heavy-duty trucking and are now commonly used in industrial equipment and harsh environments. The ITT Cannon APD series is resistant to brake and transmission fluids as well as to oil, grease, salt, dirt and mud. ITT Cannon APD heavy-duty connectors have quick-mating bayonet coupling, lock wire holes for added security, and fold-over clamshell endbells. Common variations include 2 pin connector, 3 pin connector, 4 pin connector, 6 pin connector and 7 pin connector types. For full product details on APD connectors, see the specifications below.
Rugged Plastic Housing - APD's are extremely resistant to salt spray, automotive oils, grease and fluids, and maintain their integrity in challenging environments.
Three-Point Bayonet Coupling System - Besides being quick mating with a third-of-a-turn, these connectors also provide an audible and tactile feedback that they are mated properly.
Color-Coded Mated Pair - When multiple connectors must be used in the same area and mis-mating may occur, color-coded connectors should be used. There are four codings available, black (standard), green, gray and blue, which are uniquely polarized by color using four internal keys and keyways allowing only connectors of the same color to mate.
Multiple Cable Handing Option - Low cost straight and right angle snap-over-clamshell style end bells can be used with cable ties for strain relief or put over plastic annular ring conduit (8.5mm or 10mm). The rear of the connector is also designed to use heat shrink tubing or slide on annular ring conduit (20mm).
