Amphenol Industrial Global Operations now offers a web-based tool that
simplifies 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.
Found under 'Design Online' on 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.
Chris VanSoest, Director of Marketing for Amphenol Industrial Global
Operations, said, "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 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, and can
