Lane Electronics has made available Souriau’s new micro38999 circular connectors which have been designed for the most demanding environments and offer considerable performance advantages over even the smallest MIL-DTL38999 Series III units.
The new micro38999 connectors satisfy the increasing demand for more compact, lighter connection solutions for military, aerospace and industrial applications.

According to Lane’s Managing Director Simon Hammerton, the new micro38999 connectors offer the best possible performance from the most compact models currently available. The micro38999 units allow size and weight savings of as much as 50% when compared with regular MIL-DTL38999 Series III connectors.

Although size has been dramatically reduced, performance has not been compromised. As an example, micro38999 connectors can withstand vibration levels of up 44Grms at a temperature of 125ºC for up to 8 hours.

The new connectors have removable crimp contacts which allow them to be wired or unwired on-site. Up to 26 contacts can be accommodated in a choice of 5 layouts.

The micro38999 circular connectors are available in three different fastening systems – screw fastening, bayonet coupling and push-pull.

Lane Electronics has available product in the classic Cadmium, Zinc Cobalt and Electroless Nickel finishes although the connectors can be supplied with non-reflective black zinc nickel protection to satisfy the latest RoHS directives.

Lane is an ideal source for all key connector types including circular, filtered, RF, coaxial, sub – miniature, backshells and adaptors, D connectors, aerospace, test & measurement, IDC, PCB connectors, edge connectors and connectors for rack and panel applications.
