News Release from:
07 June 2006
Now available from Aerco is a range of miniature bayonet locking connectors from Deutsch designed to address the key issues of weight and space while providing high levels of performance in harsh environments.
Deutsch Micro Military Connector (MMC) connectors are based on the proven environmental and mechanical performance of Mil-DTL-38999 but with the added benefit of increased contact density in a more compact design making them ideal for applications where space is at a premium and reliability is critical. Available in three, five and nine contact options with PCB variants also available, these tough, lightweight connectors will be ideal for use in combat vehicles and both military and commercial aircraft.
The connectors are sealed to IP67 and have an operating temperature of –55ºC to +175ºC. Mechanical endurance is a minimum of 500 mating cycles and several plating finishes are available including RoHS compliant nickel plating. Applying a shrink boot is made easier as the connector design incorporates an integral mounting that does not require additional parts.
