Choosing the best industrial connector solution for your harsh environment requirements can often prove to be time-consuming and expensive. Often, through lack of guidance or availability, users select a connector solution that isn’t quite fit for purpose. 

At Northern Connectors, we regularly advise businesses across all industries on the most effective industrial connector solutions for their applications whilst avoiding unnecessary costs and delays.

For over 35 years we have fulfilled many of these demands with products from Eaton and the Souriau Trim-Trio industrial connector portfolio. Here, we put the spotlight on the Souriau Trim-Trio range, which provides a fantastic, cost-effective option for businesses that require high-quality solutions with a speedy turnaround.

The name ‘Trim-Trio’ is used to describe a family of industrial circular and rectangular connectors that can be equipped with three (a trio) different contact types: machined, stamped & formed, & high speed (coax & fibre optic).

Benefits of the Trim-Trio range 

Businesses adopting the Trim-Trio range are able to simplify the supply chain, reduce the complexity of production and have the capability to switch from one connector series to another with ease thanks to the same design of contact offered across the range. 

What’s more, the majority of connectors that use this common crimp contact system are interchangeable, giving users the flexibility to switch from one series to another in order to better address customer needs without a significant impact on equipment or production lines. 

This innovative range is specifically designed to be compliant with major electrical IEC and UL standards, the Trim-Trio series guarantees safety conditions for the installers and users, making it the ideal connector for all your industrial and harsh environment needs.
