What are the main differences between 38999 series III, EN3645 and TV connectors?

EN3645 and D38999 (38999 series III) connectors have different assembly processes.
The EN3645qualified connectors have also harder requirements in terms of lightning strikes (15kA instead of 10kA) and fluids resistances.
The TV Range is Amphenol Socapex proprietary connector range, based on D38999 Series III connectors.
Our proprietary connectors enable us to propose additional platings and materials such as Marine Bronze, different designs (reduced flange, integrated backshells) and contacts layouts.
In accordance with their respective standards, D38999 and EN3645 connectors ordered with contacts are delivered with more contacts, sealing plugs and insertion/removal tools.
TV connectors are delivered with the exact amount of contacts.
