Connectors comply with reliability requirements
Simple push-button latching and a "D" shaped flange which makes mating orientation obvious are features of Smiths Interconnect D series connectors.
They are available at distributor TTI.
There are three D Series sizes that accommodate a wide variety of applications.
The D01 plug is available with up to nine Hypertac hyperboloid contacts in less than 0.5-in. diameter, while the slightly larger D02 offers more extensive options, from three power to 25 signal contacts, or a mixture of power or coax and signal contacts.
Options for the D Series include high temperature versions moulded in Ultem (polyetherimide) plastic, which have been shown to withstand 20 autoclave cycles while maintaining the high reliability needed for critical medical applications which require sterilisation
D Series connectors are also used in a variety of industrial, rail and commercial applications where reliability is critical.
Cable assemblies are also offered, incorporating the D Series with overmoulding, integrated electronics, metal shells for increased strength, or alternate contact configurations to meet specific customer requirements.
