Nicomatic designs and manufactures miniature connectors and solutions for harsh environments. The company uses efficient modular manufacturing processes to produce customer orders on one week lead times with no MOQ. Nicomatic at electronica showcased its full range of capabilities, highlighting two major recent introductions.
EMM series:1.27mm pitch miniature connectors target defence and other high-reliability applications. Designed to meet the performance requirements of MIL 83513, EMM series connectors occupy 40% less space than previous-generation connectors from the company, are 20% smaller than Micro D connectors for 16-pin configurations and are around 10% smaller in footprint than the closest industry competitor.
Innovative design features such as reversed contacts, integrated 90° back protection and interchangeable hardware, ensures that the new EMM connector series combines rugged design with enhanced electrical and environmental performance. Signal contacts are rated for up to 3A (for a 30 pin connector), and deliver a wiping length of 1.27mm with 1.27µm gold plating to ensure that signal integrity is maintained while under conditions of heavy shock and vibration.
FFC Vshield Cable is a flexible shielded solution for harsh environment applications. Thanks to innovative technology used by Nicomatic, this solution provides EMI / RFI & ESD protection for customer-specific applications where high-flexibility cable and data protection are crucial. The FFC V Shield is lightweight and durable with a flex life of 15 million cycles and a bend radius of curvature of 63.5mm. This cable can be also adapted with other solutions from Nicomatic, such as Crimpflex, Jumpers cables and Microflex to ensure secure interconnection.
