IRVINE, Calif., 19 Feb. 2016. ITT Corp.’s (NYSE:ITT) Cannon brand of aluminum and composite circular connectors have achieved European Standard Certification (EN3645), making them available to European commercial aerospace industry OEMs and suppliers. The company’s Circular Series III connectors are also certified in the United States under MIL-DTL-38999.
The certification followed rigorous testing, site audits, and data collection by the AeroSpace and Defence Industries Association of Europe – Standardization (ASD-STAN). As a result, ITT Cannon connectors are available for the first time to a wide range of customers in the European commercial aerospace market and supply chain.
“Building on our strength in the defense market, we can now offer our D38999 Circular Series III aluminum and composite connectors to European companies focusing on commercial aviation platforms,” says Tom Cruz, vice president and general manager of aerospace and defense for ITT’s Interconnect Solutions business.” EN3645 certification reinforces our commitment to the global aerospace industry and opens up additional opportunities for ITT Cannon to contribute to the success of future commercial aircraft.”
ITT’s D38999 Circular Series III aluminum and composite connectors provide reliable passage of radio-frequency, data, and power signals. Created for use in fuselage cable harnesses, electrical systems, and avionics equipment, these connectors have performed reliably for years in the harsh environments faced by commercial and military aircraft, officials say.
“Our lightweight composites in particular will support production of modern aircraft, helping enable fuel efficiency and comfort,” explains Nicki Kreger, aerospace and defense product manager.
