The Industry's Most Tested & Trusted Assembly
The new Ruggedized PeeWee Cable Assembly is a major upgrade to the decades-long industry leading assembly from Teledyne Reynolds, the tested and trusted PeeWee product family. The new product line offers increased durability, a higher voltage rating for certain applications, and improved abrasion resistance.
Leveraging 30 years of engineering experience developing subminiature, high voltage connectors, Ruggedized PeeWee (or “PWR”) is a more robust connector-wire-connector assembly that also offers an elevated voltage rating for specific ground-based applications. PWR also offers improved abrasion resistance through its use of thicker FED-insulated wire.

The Problem PWR Solves. It was designed specifically to address our customers' desire for enhanced durability in standard industry assemblies so that they can withstand possible mechanical damage after numerous mating cycles.
Tested, Trusted, Proven. Customers can have maximum confidence in the PWR because we have tested it far beyond the limits we specify. We validated the design using multiple samples to establish performance in over 13 categories. You can order a copy of the full test report here because we stand by our products confidently – Technology, Tested, Trusted.
Compatibility. Ruggedized PeeWee is fully compatible with all existing legacy PeeWee solutions and is based on the proven PeeWee connector interface.
Higher Voltage. While legacy PeeWee provides a 12.0 kVDC voltage rating for high altitude applications in harsh environments, Ruggedized PeeWee offers an elevated 18.0 kVDC rating for certain ground-based applications including medical, instrumentation, semiconductor, and testing. The PWR provides much improved abrasion resistance leveraging thicker FEP-insulated wire, and a more ruggedized, robust back end of the connector that delivers an even more reliable connector-wire-connector assembly.

History. Ruggedized PeeWee is derivative of the SPACE RATED version of our legacy PeeWee product line. Originally, PeeWee was designed decades ago for high altitude, high voltage, defense electronic applications, and its small form factor makes it ideal for weight and space sensitive applications.
We leverage our proprietary Advanced Interface Seal Design to maintain steady HV performance at high altitudes and under a robust range of harsh conditions (temperature, mechanical, etc.). Teledyne has shipped over half a million PeeWee products to customers over the past 3 decades.
