If a catalog is available, you will see a button titled 'View Catalog' on the right.
Requesting Pdf version of a Drawing:
We do not intentionally hold back PDF's - it is not in the best interest of our site visitor or us as a Company. Amphenol has literally millions of part numbers, countless are from pre CAD days consequently only hard copy drawings are available. In these cases we do our best to obtain some electronic format to send out when requested and for this we need to know some details. PDF's for new products are posted as soon as drawings are released.
The button titled 'Request pdf' appears if there is no drawing available for you to download. This may be due to several reasons:
1. We have the drawing and are still in the process of making it available for download.
2. No drawing actually exist and one will have to be requested from the factory for you.
3. We need to direct your request to the appropriate Amphenol divison.
Hint: If you know that you will be requesting several drawings, send only one email with a list of the items, rather than one email per drawing.
Only Registered users who are Direct Customers of Amphenol Canada are able to view our pricing structure. Remember to log on if you wish to view prices.

Searching for a Drawing:
You don't need to provide answers to all the questions! If you know the part number, or the starting characters, just enter it in the Product Search and click 'Select'. We'll fill in the wildcards and return a list of parts that match what you are looking for.
If you are unsure of what your needs are, use the drill down by clicking on a item from the 'Products' menu. This will take you to a list of 'Series' within the family. Then click a "Series" link and answer as many questions that you can provide answers to. You may choose to answer none, one or all questions. The choice is yours! you can click the 'Select' button to return a parts list.
The page is not being refreshed:
Occasionally, your web browser may not be able to connect to a site due to a myriad of reasons, sometimes nothing to do with the site you are addressing. Over and above this, it is common for the browsers to "cache" the web page and store them in "Temporary Internet Files", and also to store "cookies". If a site is not found or unavailable etc. when you tried to access it, you may get the same "cached" page everytime you attempt to access that site. This depends on the settings of your browser options which can be set to refresh upon every visit. In these cases the easiest thing to try is to force a "refresh" by holding down the "ctrl" key and pressing the "F5" key. If the page appears unchanged then there is likely to be a "current" problem.
