AMP "G" Series connectors provide a practical means of mixing various types of electrical circuits in one basic connector configuration. They offer modular versatility as well as Multimate contact capabilities which permit use of multiple combinations of power, signal, coaxial and fiber optic circuits in the same connectors.
The "G" Series connector line provides a choice of shell sizes for housing either one, two, or three contact modules. The modules, in turn, are available in a variety of circuit densities to accommodate Type XII power contacts; Size 12 Type I and miniature COAXICON contacts (interchangeable in the same contact cavity); and Size 16 Type II, III+, VI, X, subminiature COAXICON and OPTIMATE fiber optic contacts (interchangeable in the same Multimate contact cavity).
Each shell includes a retainer plate for easy drop-in assembly of the contact modules. Both shell and retainer are made of cast aluminum. Shells also are available with and without floating bushings and are polarized with keyways in the receptacles and matching keys in the plugs. The modules are made of either diallyl phthalate or general purpose phenolic.
Complementing the "G" Series modular connectors are latching hardware, cable clamps and strain relief which ensure the integrity of all mated connections.
