SOFIX® Shielded Cable Connectors

SOFIX® is a front IO interconnection system comprised of R/A headers and cable plugs, suitable for the distribution of power or signal. The design rules for the SOFIX® family of I/O connectors are derived from the Metral system (IEC 61076-104). As such, the SOFIX® system can be used as complement to the Metral® backplane connector family or applied as a dedicated I/O solution.
