AHD Series™ Connectors

Amphenol Sine Systems’ AHD Series™ connectors were developed in response to the overwhelming need for an economical alternative to today’s existing diagnostic product options. Designed specifically as a cost-conscious, reliable alternative, intermateable to industry standard 6-pin and 9-pin connectors, the AHD Series is ideal for any situation where either controlled or uncontrolled environmental conditions exist.

AHD Series connectors offer both a smooth, non-sealing option for controlled applications and an environmentally-sealed, threaded option for more demanding applications.

AHD Series connectors are completely compatible with all other existing standard products industry-wide.
