Intuitive interface enables immediate documentation downloads

Amphenol Industrial Global Operations, a global leader in interconnect systems, now offers a web-based tool that simplifies the online part selection and configuration of its most popular connectors. This new tool allows users to download 3D CAD models or PDFs of the connectors that they have created using this new system.

Found under the ‘Design Online’ section of the Amphenol Industrial website, the new interface provides on-demand plug and play models for customers to use during any phase of the design process. Design Online – an intuitive interface that features industrial parametric search capabilities -is available to use with six of Amphenol’s core product series, including 97 Series, AC Threaded, ACA-B Series, Amphe-Lite Series, GT Series and PT Series/26482 Series I, with additional expansions planned. Design Online can currently generate over 16,000 models to meet a wide variety of customer specifications. Users simply choose a product line and select connector attributes to automatically configure a part number, and then pick all applicable part modifications. Any documents for the configured part number, including a 3D CAD model (offering 18 different 3D CAD software options), a 3D PDF, a 2D drawing, catalog and technical data sheet, can easily be downloaded.

Chris Van Soest, Director of Marketing for Amphenol Industrial Global Operations, commented, “Industrial product selection and procurement has changed with the Internet. Existing and potential customers often research and select products online before speaking with a supplier. It is important to our customers that the right product for their application is easy to find and incorporate into their CAD design.”
