A manufacturer of electrical connectors offers a web-based tool that simplifies online part selection and configuration of its most widely used connectors. This new software, offered by Amphenol Industrial Global Operations, lets users 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, this new interface provides on-demand plug and play models to customers during any phase of the design process. Amphenol’s Design Online system is an intuitive interface that features industrial parametric search capabilities.
Users simply choose a product line and select connector attributes to configure a part number, 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, are easily downloaded.
“Existing and potential customers often research and select products online before speaking with a supplier,” says Amphenol Director of Marketing Chris Van Soest “It is important to users that the right product for their application is easy to find online as well as be easy to incorporate into their CAD design.”
Design Online is available for 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.
