Interconnect solution for soldier-worn underwater applications


A new product from ITT Canon has been announced with the Nemesis II CBA 20M+, the next generation miniature circular interconnect for soldier-worn applications designed and tested for water submersion to over 20m, reportedly among the highest in the industry.

Small, lightweight and highly reliable, the Nemesis II CBA 20M+ blends high speed, high mating and quick termination to perform reliably in extreme conditions, making it suited for battlefield communication devices and applications such as manpack and hand-held radios.

The Nemesis II CBA enables power, signal and data in a smaller, more robust and integrated design package--helping warfighters reduce physical load, maintain communication and receive mission-criticalinform action when they need it most.

Key features and benefits 

  • Cannon Breakaway functionality allows soldiers to quickly disconnect and reconnect when their cables and equipment become snagged, reducing risk of injury and minimizing equipment damage.
  • Spring-loaded Pogo Contacts enable 10,000+ mating cycles (connection/disconnection), for durability and reliability in the field.
  • Highly engineered blind mating design.
  • Easily terminates to wire, PCB and flex circuits.
