TT Electronics’ mag-Net wearable connector has been selected as a finalist in this year’s British Engineering Excellence Awards (BEEAs) for the New Product Of The Year (Mechanical) category. The BEEAs aim to demonstrate and promote the quality of engineering design within the UK. The Judges were looking for engineering products where designers have taken an innovative approach to meet a particular market need.
For connecting equipment to soldier-worn garments and load-carrying systems, TT Electronics’ mag-Net® soldier connector is the world’s first and only C4I2 MIL-spec connector specifically designed for textile mounting. Unlike barrel connectors, mag-Net® is a robust, flush, rectangular solution with a self-aligning, automatic magnetic latching system that enables the easiest ever, one-handed, blind mating. Put simply, mag-Net’s design provides mechanical latching with no moving parts for reliable, jam-free operation.
Together with an ultra-lightweight, no-bulk design that maximises mobility and eliminates cable snag hazards, mag-Net®’s abrasion-resistant, flush-flat receptacles are virtually self-cleaning and require no protective caps, ensuring maximum durability and full environmental-sealing in mated and un-mated conditions.
