THIEF RIVER FALLS, Minnesota, USA - March 10, 2011

Electronic components distributor Digi-Key Corporation, recognized by design engineers as having the industry's broadest selection of electronic components available for immediate shipment, today announced it has stock of CONEC's robust, solid-body D-sub connecters.

The IP67-rated solid-body D-sub connector has a silicone O-ring panel seal for a watertight connection. CONEC ensures high performance with gold-plated machined contacts. The connector is available in standard, high-density, and combination D-sub configurations, and with solder-cup, right-angle, and straight terminations.

The solid-body, nickel-plated, zinc die cast housing conforms to current solder requirements for RoHS-compliant solder temperatures. The entire product range is UL Listed, rated to IP67 and can be mated to standard shell sizes one through five in D-sub standard, D-sub high density, and mixed-layout configurations.
