CarlisleIT Launches 3D CAD Downloads for Octax Series Connectors, Built by CADENAS PARTsolutions

Global interconnect manufacturer streamlines access to engineering data by providing free configurable 3D CAD downloads


Carlisle Interconnect Technologies (CIT), a division of Carlisle Companies (CSL), has recently launched an interactive catalog for their Octax series connectors, featuring 3D CAD downloads built by CADENAS PARTsolutions. This online tool will make it faster and easier for CarlisleIT customers to find and specifiy the correct CarlisleIT connector for their design.

Best known for providing a wide variety of interconnect solutions, the CarlisleIT Octax® Ultra High-Speed Ethernet Connectors are a lightweight and cost-effective solution for the commercial and military aerospace markets. Now, these popular connectors are available as configurable 3D CAD downloads on the CarlisleIT website.

“We want to be the easiest company to work with,” says Dan Dawson, Director of Design Engineering at Carlisle Interconnect Technologies. “By making this process as smooth as possible, we are staying on the leading edge of technology and delivering what our customers expect of us.”

Previously, aerospace and defense engineers looking to source a CarlisleIT connector would call or email for a CAD model. These files were not always readily available, delaying the customer’s productivity. Now, by placing the models on-demand within their website, CarlisleIT is empowering these engineers to find, configure, and test these models instantly within their designs.

Dawson adds, “an engineer wants product information as quickly as possible, with a representation and dimensions so they can get back to work on their design. They don’t need to be experts on our products; that’s what we’re here for.”
