Development and manufacture of 162GB miniature bayonet lock connectors has been closely coordinated with the solder version. The entire programme has been carried out at Amphenol’s Whitstable Plant. The precision machinery and measurement control processes used for the production of 162GB crimp connectors are the same as those used to produce 62GB solder connectors. Full intermountability and intermateability are absolutely guaranteed. 162GB Series crimp connectors share many of the features of 62GB solder connectors. Coupling is achieved with a triple-track bayonet locking system which gives positive alignment on all shell sizes. When connector halves are fully mated there is a definite click. Inspection holes in the coupling ring will then reveal the bayonet pins on the receptacle which are clearly marked in yellow.
