ARINC 600 Connectors are recognized standard rack and panel connectors for Aircraft applications. The ARINC 600 is the successor to the ARINC 404 for many of the new avionics designs. Compared to the ARINC 404, the ARINC 600 features lower mating force contacts, increased contact count, and a front release, floating keying system. Amphenol’s extensive product offering will meet the most demanding needs of our customers. At the design-in stage, Amphenol’s sales engineers will work with you to select a connector from our standard product line or coordinate the design of an application-specific connector. Amphenol’s ARINC 600 rack and panel connectors are designed to meet all relevant ARINC 600 connector specifications.
