Lane Electronics just announced Positronic’s environmentally sealed D-Subminiature connectors designed for a wide range of applications where panel connections, for example, must be protected against environmental conditions such as dust and water. The Positronic standard or high density WD, WDD and EVD series are high reliability, IP67-rated D-Subminiature connectors available with various materials and finishes including corrosion resistant Stainless Steel, aerospace approved Electroless Nickel and RoHS compliant options.
The WD series comprises standard density connectors available in two versions – Legacy and a new Unibody design. Both versions offer an excellent sealing performance and feature solder cup, straight and right angle PCB mount terminations. The Unibody version is available in five connector variants with 9 to 50, size 20 contacts. The WD Legacy design is available with the same variants as the Unibody with the addition of two other variants – 25 male and 50 male contacts.
The high density WDD series is also available in Legacy and Unibody versions. Both also offer an excellent sealing performance and feature solder cup, straight and right angle PCB mount terminations. The Unibody version is available in three connector variants with 15, 26 and 44, size 22 contacts. The WDD Legacy design is available with the same variants as the Unibody version with the addition of three other variants – 44 male, 62 and 78 size 22 contacts.
Both the WD and WDD connectors can be supplied pre-wired to provide a sealed, free cable connector option. There are ten connector variants – standard density 9, 15, 25, 37 and 50 and high density 15, 26, 44, 62 and 78 contacts. According to Lane Electronics these can be used as a cable to cable or cable to a fixed connector system.
The EVD standard density series is a cable connector which uses rear connector grommets to provide a sealed connector for use with removable standard and thermocouple crimp contacts. Lane offers the EVD series with five connector variants with 9 to 50 size 20 contacts.
