Omnetics Connector Corporation has announced that its Bi-Lobe connectors are now available with a quick latch system. Moreover, these devices pass the shock and vibration requirements of MIL-DTL-32139 – making them the first latching nano products suitable for use in military and aerospace applications.
The latches provide extra security, but are very simple to use and require no tools. The latching Bi-Lobe connectors utilize Omnetics’ rugged and reliable Flex-Pin contact system spaced on 0.635mm (0.025in) centerlines, and capable of carrying 1A per contact. Dielectric withstand voltage is 350VAC RMS; insulation resistance is 5,000MΩ (min) @ 100VDC; and contact resistance is 25mΩ (25mV) (max) @ 1A. Available in pin counts from 9-65, latching Bi-Lobes can be configured with discrete wires, over-molded cable, panel mount housings, and PCB mount versions.
Comments Gary Evans, European Sales Manager: “MIL-DTL-32139 is the military and aerospace quality standard for 0.635mm pitch nano connectors. It requires products to pass specs that allow no discontinuities of greater than 10 nanoseconds at 20G vibration or 100G shock forces. Our Bi-Lobes are the first latching nano connectors available that exceed these performance measurements.”
