Stainless-steel D-sub connectors for nontoxic applications

Specialist in connectivity and sensors, TE Connectivity (TE), recently released its new line of rugged AMPLIMITE D-subminiature (D-sub) connectors that put the same corrosion resistance of connectors made with cadmium into an environmentally-friendly, stainless-steel housing.

The new stainless-steel housing is designed to meet the performance requirements of MIL-DTL-24308, offering up to 500 hours of resistance to salt spray in harsh environments.

“As militaries move away from products that contain cadmium in order to comply with environmental regulations, we’re designing products like the AMPLIMITE D-sub connectors that meet new demands while maintaining durability standards,” said William Newton, product manager for TE’s Aerospace, Defense and Marine division.

TE’s new AMPLIMITE D-sub connectors have passivated stainless-steel shells and comply with Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) directives. They are available in standard density 20 or high density 22 AWG crimp contacts.
