Triax Contacts

triax gold-sweepThe shielded triax contacts with three conductors are designed for use with triax cable. Amphenol supplies Triax contacts in sizes 8, 10 and 12 for use in MIL-DTL-38999 Series I and III connectors. Triax contacts provide additional shielding when terminated to triax cable having solid or stranded center conductors. Each of the three conductors of the triax contact is separated by dielectric insulation to isolate ground planes and to improve shielding effectiveness. All conductors are crimp terminated for high reliability and ease of assembly. Triax contact may be specified for direct connection to printed circuit boards. For maximum system flexibility, triax contacts may be mixed with coax, twinax and power contacts in a single connector.
