- details and information about the C-type connector, - C-type socket and plug with links to suppliers.
Although not widely used these days, one form of connector that can be used for higher power applications where quick mating and release are required is the C-type connector. The C-type connector was designed by Amphenol engineer Carl Concelman who also designed several other types of connector.
The C-type connector uses a bayonet fitting using two studs to enable the connector to be fully located and locked in position. The C-type connector is weatherproof, although if it is to be used externally, then it is always wise to use self amalgamating tape or other protection.
The C-type connector is not widely used, but it can be obtained from a variety of suppliers should it be needed for any given application.
