See all news & events

Amphenol Socapex launches three new ranges of protective caps for its circular connectors. These ranges round out the current standard series to provide complete and lasting protection for all MIL-DTL-38999 Series I, II and III, MIL-DTL-26482, RJ Field and USB Field connectors.

Self-closing caps
Amphenol Socapex's self-closing caps offer real ease of use and optimal protection. They screw directly onto receptacles and are available in two types of material:

  • composite for MIL-DTL-26482 connectors;
  • aluminium for the MIL-DTL-38999 range.

A vast choice of plating finishes — including nickel, black zinc nickel, and cadmium — is available to guarantee increased protection against corrosion, impacts, and vibrations. In addition, the metal cap for the MIL-DTL-38999 range is IP67.

Standard metal caps
The standard versions with lanyard are compatible with MIL-DTL-38999, MIL-DTL-26482, RJ Field and USB Field connectors. The caps are available in aluminium, stainless steel, and bronze with a wide range of plating finishes, lanyards and eyelets to meet every possible need, application, and environment (IP68).

Silicone caps
Amphenol Socapex's silicone caps with nylon cord withstand temperatures up to 200°C and are compatible with the aforementioned connectors. They are a cost-effective alternative and are IP67 rated for harsh
environments where damage from dust and moisture is possible.
