mag-Net®

mag-Net® - The Invisible Garment Mounted Power and Data Connector

Magnetic Connector for Armed Forces, First Responders and Law Enforcement.

The flush-flat, self-aligning, automatic coupling connector.

For wearable electronic soldier systems in harsh environments that require invisible power and data connectivity. mag-Net® is a ground-breaking connector solution that provides incredible ease-of-use and reliability.

Unlike circular barrel connectors, mag-Net® is a robust, flush rectangular solution with a self-aligning, automatic magnetic latching system, enabling the easiest one-handed blind mating.

“Unleash Mobility”

New mag-Net® supports

  • Scalable C4I2 functionality
  • Improved mobility
  • Superior human factors
  • Invisible power and data
  • Dependable reliability
