SHX subminiature connectors are ideal for use with fine gage thermocouple wires in applications where high temperatures are required. The SHX connector is permanently dot-coded to conform to ANSI and OMEGA standards for applications such as high vacuum furnaces where contamination would adversely affect the process, USHX connectors are shipped with a removable color-coding dot. Two-piece ceramic construction assures long life, while the oversized terminal screws allow for easy wiring.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as advertised Connectors work as advertised although being ceramic they crack easily with rough handling. Note: Strain relief clamps are also needed to facilitate holding the attached cable in place.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hight temp connector I like the firm hold on the connectors but did not realize how fragile the cover assembly is. I broke the cover with only moderate tightening of the screws. I was a little more cautious on the next assembly and it was ok.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good connectors Good but fragile connectors. Great identification.
