Rapid market growth, continuous technology development and more sophisticated industry requirements are driving the demand for easy-to-use but reliable and robust interconnection systems. A leading provider of connectivity solutions, TE Connectivity is pleased to showcase its established and broad-ranging AMPMODU interconnection system at the electronica/productronica tradeshow in Shanghai from 20-22 March, 2012.
The AMPMODU interconnection system is one of TE’s most proven designs, encapsulating over 30 years
of innovation and expertise bundled into a compact and robust solution. As markets develop and
applications become increasingly dependent on computerization, there is an increased need for efficient, robust and above all, failsafe signal interconnections. The AMPMODU solution set fulfills the wide-ranging requirements of applications such as board-to-board, wire–to-board and wire-to-wire. It is suitable for deployment across all key industries such as automotive, computer and peripherals, communications infrastructure, industrial and factory equipment, aerospace and military, consumer electronics and healthcare applications.
The AMPMODU interconnection system has become a signal standard for automation and control: due to its exceptionally high quality in addition to robust materials and workmanship, the connector range is resistant to wear and tear with a very low maintenance level and failure rate. This reliability, coupled with a long working lifecycle, lowers the running costs and total cost of ownership considerably. With features such as unique latching technologies and dual cantilever beam contacts, the connectors work reliably in harsh environments and can withstand severe vibrations and shocks.
“TE prides itself on the quality and reliability of its solutions and we go to great lengths to enable extended lifecycles. Our real-life internal tests in defined environments suggest an expected reliability rate of 90% and a projected lifespan of 95 years,” said Mark Beatty, product manager for the AMPMODU interconnection series at TE. “With quality as a keystone, there are some AMPMODU product families within the portfolio which boast quality assurance levels in excess of 98%. This is why they have such a high acceptance in the market and are suitable for a wide range of applications,” he continued.
AMPMODU interconnects offer design flexibility and diversity as they are available in a large range of
dimensions and in double or single rows.
