ITT’s VEAM CIR-M12 Connector
The VEAM CIR-M12 connector from ITT Interconnect Solutions is a high-speed, circular, bayonet databus connector that enables different data types to be transmitted between cars in mass transit systems.
Designed to reduce costs and increase functionality in mass transit applications, the VEAM CIR-M12 connector from ITT Interconnect Solutions is a high-speed, circular, bayonet databus connector that enables different data types to be transmitted between cars in mass transit systems. The CIR-M12 was specifically developed to meet the demands of harsh and demanding environments and provide robust and reliable data transmission. Its ability to bundle data feeds means the VEAM CIR-M12 saves weight, critical to enhancing performance in today’s competitive rail industry, while component count is also reduced.
VEAM CIR-M12 technology allows designers to incorporate any databus, such as Ethernet, MVB, WTB, and video lines according to VG95234 (where applicable) within the same connector. It uses ITT’s QXM12 contacts mounted into proven FRCIR series circular bayonet connector hardware. Two, four, or eight conductor wires and the associated braid from shielded cables are integrated into the QXM12 contact and a special plastic insert channels multiple QXM12 contacts and their associated cables into the single CIR-M12 interconnect. In this way, data feeds from different sources on a train, such as engine diagnostics, brake controls, air conditioning, passenger display systems, networking and lighting control can be grouped into a single connector. An enhanced version that allows visual inspection and enables harnessing mixing problems to be solved quickly will be available soon.
