Syntax®, connect to innovation



  • Panel and inline versions

    The SYNTAX® SSX series, designed for professional lighting applications and totally compatible with standard Socapex 419 series, is extremely robust being made of thick wall construction machined aluminium alloy, with hard wearing black painted or anodized finish. The thermoplastic insulating insert enables the use of removable contacts, either crimp or solder.
    The unit is completely IP67 watertight when mated.
    Electrical safety and compliance are guaranteed by internal insulation of the shells, obtained through a safety insulating sleeve preventing electric shock, as well as “first make last break” ground contacts. Grounding rings allow bussing of the ground contacts. Locking rings and backshells are designed for easy handling.

  • Anti-rotation design

    New high-precision machined anti-rotation shell design

    As of 2012, all SSX male and female connectors are equipped with a Syntax proprietary anti-rotation design to prevent the spinning of an insulating insert within its shell. The anti-rotation system features 4 large keys + 4 smaller ones on the insert, physically displaced by 45 degrees from one another and interlocked with as many keys on the metal housing. This system ensures that the interior is positively locked, putting an end to a long standing industry problem. The Syntax anti-rotation device was first designed in 2011 and has been implemented in the production of SSX connectors since 2012. This new design is a 2018 upgrade. The inserts are available in different colours: black /standard), red, blue, yellow, orange. For other color options, please contact our sales department.

  • SSX 19 pin - Connector Features

    • Shell tightening hex (Photo 1) - The standard version of the inline female features an external hex to tighten the connector’s front and back shells once wiring operations have been carried out.
      Double backshell tightening (Photo 2) - Once wiring is carried out, both circular knurling and machined housings for customized wrench jaws on the backshell’s edge contribute to easier locking. Machined housings for SVKT-KSW customized wrench and marked knurl ridges for SVKT-KSTRAP strap wrench.
        Insulation sleeve (Photo 3) - Total electrical safety! A thermoplastic 
        insulation sleeve is fitted inside the metal backshell of the connector for double insulation.
      IP67 covers (Photo 4-5) - The SSX IP67 caps ensure complete waterproof protection. The use of protective caps results in:
      • Extended life span of the connectors as the mating threads are protected against damage derived from impacts
      • Improved safety as contacts are protected against dust and water even when the connectors are not mated
      Dust cap lacing (Photo 6) - A dedicated housing for dust cap lacing has been machined on the connector’s backshell. Dust cap is laced via a special high-resistance cable made up of seven stainless strands and covered by anti-scratch teflon black tubing, provided with standard dust cap.
      Anti-twisting grub screw (Photo 7) - Mating is obtained by twisting female and male connectors clockwise. As the backshell is tightened counterclockwise, the anti-twisting grub screw prevents unintentional unscrewing of the corrector’s backshell.

  • Colored locking rings

    Rubber coated
    The rubber coated version of the locking ring is now available also on the SSX 19 pin and 16 pin connectors series. For quick identification of your cables through color coding, four different colors are available: black (standard), red, blue, yellow. For other color options, feel free to contact our sales department. Below the rubber coat, we maintained the characteristics of our proprietary heavy-duty metal ring, that has been universally appreciated and has set a new standard in the industry as for strength and durability. The thougthful design of the locking-ring ensures optimal grip on the whole circumference and easy coupling. The thick wall inner metal ring, in fact, provides unparalleled resistance to all possible forms of abuse. It represents an evolution of the rubber-coated rings commonly found on the market and solves the problem of their being mechanically weaker compared to all-metal construction rings.
    Colored anodized locking rings
    Available colors on request: Blue - Red - Gold - Green - Purple - Silver (Photo 3 and 4)

  • Rounded edge female contacts

    A benchmark set on mechanical perfection
    The new design of the SSX female contacts features a rounded shape of the contact entry ports and allows smooth contact insertion inside the insulating insert for a seamless mating with no damages on the pin cavities and positive contact placement and retention.
    Faster and safer contact insertion
    The rounded edge female contacts are supplied as a standard on all SSX female connectors. This proprietary Syntax design eliminates the need to use lubricants or guide pins to insert the contacts, greatly reducing assembling time.

  • Armored contacts

    An innovation on the SSX series
    The Syntax armored contacts are avalaible on request on all female versions (inline and panel) Syntax SSX 19 pin and 16 pin  connectors . The armored contacts are provided with a protective jacket to improve contactation on SSX connector. The usage of armored contacts results in a series of mechanical and electrical advantages.
    - self-centered for a seamless connection      - increased number of mating cycles
    - improved electrical conductivity                    - lower operating temperature

  • SSX 16 pin Speaker / Motor connector

    The Speaker / Motor SSX 16 pin connector is used in Speaker and Motor applications. It is supplied with 16 contacts and 3 anti-dust blind pins. Unlike the 19 pin SSX connector used for lighting applications, where an indication of the 6 lighting circuits is silkscreened on the insert, this version is supplied with pins numbered 1 to 19 (embossed), without any further silkscreened indication.
    Also on the 16 pin Speaker / Motor versions of the SSX connectors, the rubber coated locking rings are available in different colors: black /standard), red, blue, yellow, orange.
    For other color options, please contact our sales department.

  • Multiway SSX spider grommets

    Waterproof spider splitters
    SYNTAX® SSX SPIDER connectors are alternative versions of the SSX standard inline connectors, designed for quick and easy managing of breakout applications. The Syntax proprietary 4, 6 or 8 way rubber grommets, fitted in the cable gland, guarantee optimal cable retention and IP67 watertight seal for outdoor use. For breakout assemblies with 6 cable leads, the usage of Syntax® MAINFLEX cable is recommended for full IP67 waterproof protection and best handling.

    • 8-way Speaker spider splitter (Photo 1)
      For speaker applications, SSX 16 pin spider connectors are equipped with an M50 body and gland, with 8-way grommet. In this case, the SSX connectors are typically used to manage 8 speaker channels with 8 times 2x2.5 or 2x4 speaker cables terminated with 2p connectors.
