Overview

The best connector to fit your needs is the one you design yourself! The Scorpion connector can be configured for use as a power connector, a signal level connector or a hybrid of the two. The possible contact variations are nearly limitless — build your own connector with any combination of modular tooling for a final one-piece insulator.

Features
