wipperman connex - 2 types ?

I ordered a connex 10 from performancebike.com recently,
however it appears that there are 2 versions, one for wipperman chains and another for shimano chains.

Is this cast in stone or can the wipperman version work with a shimano chain ?

Bikes: '''96 Litespeed Catalyst, '05 Litespeed Firenze, '06 Litespeed Tuscany, '12 Surly Pacer, All are 3x8,9 or 10. It is hilly around here!

Are you sure they don't mean different widths? Wipperman chains for Campy 10-speed are 6.2 mm wide and their chains for Shimano 10-speed are 6.0 mm wide. They also make 9-speed chains which are wider than either.

HillRider is, as usual, correct. You can learn more about them (the links) here http://www.connexchain.com/. Click on "products" then "connectors."
