Amphenol Pcd SOLARIS Connectors

Amphenol Pcd SOLARIS Connectors offers a lighter, easier-to-use option than D-sub or many modular rectangular solutions. The low profile, innovative, lightweight connectors are sealed to IP67 and are FAR25 Flame and Toxicity compliant. The connectors feature an easy-to-use spring-loaded slide lock mechanism, high mating cycles (500 minimum), and a wide -65°C to +150°C operating temperature range. Each housing has raised finger ridges for a sure grip, and a built-in cable tie access hole provides a “zero footprint” method to secure the connector to a bulkhead or cable bundle. The SOLARIS Connectors are ideal for lighting, intelligent peripherals, seat actuators, and low/medium power in aerospace, rail mass transit, robotic, and automotive applications.


  • Low-profile rectangular form factor is <0.5" tall
  • Fits into seat arms, backs, tray tables, and compartments, as well as lower-profile ceiling and side panels
  • Integrated tie-wrap hole allows zero-footprint tie down to pipes, bundles, and bulkheads
  • IP67 interfacial and wire sealed for use in human interface and wet/damp applications
  • Polyetherimide housings provide high-temperature resistance, chemical resistance, long working life, and high mating cycles
  • Slide latch provides easy-to-use, FOD free, tool-less mating
  • Integral boot ridge for tying off protective sheathing and braids without adding backshells or saddle clamps
  • Snap-on strain relief is a tool-less, FOD-free accessory that helps prevent wear and tear at cable/connector ingress
  • Reverse gender capability means plugs and receptacles may be configured with pins or sockets, allowing live power connector to be plug or receptacle, depending on application requirements
