Earth Mover

Glenair manufactures a broad range of qualified electrical power and signal connectors for electrical vehicles, industrial equipment, as well as rail, mass-transit and harsh environment military applications. Many of the connector products, backshells and accessories are manufactured to comply with the MIL-DTL-5015 or MIL-DTL-26482 specifications, which include hundreds of versatile power and signal connector designs ideally suited for electrical power and signal interconnect cabling. The addition of reverse bayonet coupling to these robust military style connectors improves their reliability and mating performance in rugged, vibration and shock applications.

Glenair is also able to offer many of these same connector families qualified to NATO and VG standards including VG95234 and VG95328. Specialty application connectors, such as our popular VG qualified CB connector for radio and audio applications are also available on the CB Series "PogoPin" Connectors page.

The Glenair Power Product Group has been manufacturing these products since 1985. The Power Product Group factory consists of two 4000 square meter plants which are certified to UNI EN ISO 9001, NATO AQAP110 and ISO 9001:2008.

A worldwide sales and support network, including dedicated teams in Italy and the United States provides application engineering and order assistance. Glenair's worldwide network of sales and support professionals are also factory trained to support the Power Product Groups entire line of ruggedized electrical power and signal connectors, cables and power distribution products.

International Railway Industry Standard

Glenair Italia has again qualified for the European rail industry’s highest quality certification standard. IRIS (International Railway Industry Standard) Certification complements the ISO 9001 quality standard by introducing rail specific requirements.

IRIS certification seeks to avoid multiple business management system audits and enhance industry efficiency. The IRIS Certificate replaces individual management system evaluations by at least the four founders of this initiative (Alstom Transport, AnsaldoBreda, Siemens Transportation Systems and Bombardier Transportation).

Companies seeking IRIS certification undergo extensive quality systems review and documentation, as well as auditing by a third-party examiner.

IGE

[ 693 KB pdf ]
Our IGE series connector delivers outstanding performance in high-current power applications, mainly in military systems such as ground-vehicle support. IGE series connectors are are used for the transmission of high currents with low voltage such as is required in military vehicles or industrial equipment. The connector uses a unipolar contact junction with high performance dielectric materials. Several O-rings inside and outside the connectors provide watertightness up to 1 bar, while the bayonet coupling system avoids accidental unmatings in high-vibration applications.
IT Series

IT Series

The Glenair IT series conforms to the MIL-DTL-5015 threaded-coupling connector standard for power and signal applications in both industrial and military applications. Insert arrangements from 1 to 150 contacts, with contact sizes from 20 awg to 4/0 awg are available. These connectors are intermateable with other industry standard MIL-DTL-5015 connector families. A wide range of connector backshells and accessories are available, including protective covers for both plugs and receptacles.

VG95234 Qualified Bayonet-Lock Connectors

VG95234 Qualified Bayonet-Lock Connectors

[ 9 MB pdf ]
The VG95234 is the German military BWB standard equivalent of our commercial ITS reverse bayonet connector. As with the ITS, the series is based on the MIL-DTL-5015 standard, but feature an improved reverse bayonet coupling. The 3-point bayonet mechanism reduces coupling time and provides easier mating when the connector is in an awkward position. Positive locking of the three stainless steel pins provides reliable resistance to vibration and shock, and prevents connector de-coupling in even the most rugged applications such as military vehicles.
VG95328 Qualified Bayonet-Lock Connectors

VG95328 Qualified Bayonet-Lock Connectors

[ 6 MB pdf ]
The Glenair Series VG95328 Bayonet-Lock Signal Connector is ideally suited for all general and environmental applications that require a high-performance military type cylindrical connector with crimp-removable contacts. Qualified to VG95328, the bayonet mechanism provides fast and easy coupling, especially when the connector is situated in an awkward or hard to reach location.
VG96929 Reverse Bayonet Single-Pole Connectors

VG96929 Reverse Bayonet Single-Pole Connectors

[ 10 MB pdf ]
Glenair's VG 96929 Reverse Bayonet Unipolar Connectors are used for the transmission of high currents with low voltage such as required by applications on military vehicles and on various industrial equipment. Derived from the VG 95234 Series Connectors and sharing similar mating dimensions and mechanical characteristics, VG 96929 connectors feature unique insulating inserts in two parts (front and rear) that are retained inside the shell by a dynamic spring. Multiple exterior and interior connector o-rings create a watertight seal (1 bar) and the bayonet coupling system helps to prevent accidental un-mating caused by vibration.
