Lane Electronics will present its military vehicle power connector capability at DVD 2010, to be staged at the Millbrook Proving Ground on June 23rd and 24th. DVD 2010 is organised by Defence Equipment and Support (DE&S), which is the part of the MOD responsible for equipping and supporting the UK's armed forces for current and future operations.
Bringing together the armed forces and the accredited defence industry with the acquisition community, DVD provides a unique opportunity to learn about, discuss and experience the equipment and support that is critical to the success of the UK’s armed forces.

On stand C5-148, Lane Electronics will present no less than four product ranges designed specifically for use in extreme environments and applications. These will be ITW McMurdo’s 801 and 801CX Series two-part PCB connector system, Souriau’s D38999 Series III DC power connectors and the LMH and LMV power connector series from Weald Electronics.

The 801 and 801CX is designed to meet the latest UK and International standards and is for use primarily in mil/ aerospace applications from fast jet to gun turret, where high resistance to vibration and extreme reliability are critical.

Produced by ITW McMurdo, for whom Lane Electronics is a franchised assembling distributor, the 801 and 801CX Series utilizes a 1.27mm (0.05in) staggered pitch with 2.54mm (0.1in) between rows and can be supplied on short lead times in a variety of contact configurations. The 801 Series is approved to BS9525 N0001 and was originally designed to meet the requirements of BS9525 F0006, F00012, F0027, F0041 and MIL-C-55302/140-155.

Souriau’s D38999 Series III DC power connectors are housed in the circular MIL-DTL-38999 platforms and have been designed to be resistant to fluid and severe vibration. With current ratings, based on the D38999 specification to 600A and to 750A for ground level applications, these connectors can be supplied in various body materials with a wide range of contact arrangements and finished with a choice of Zinc Cobalt, Zinc Nickel or Nickel plating.

The Weald Electronics LMV range is approved to IEQC-CECC spec BS/CECC 75201-004 which includes the safety requirements of BS EN 60950 for safe use in mains applications and CE marked assemblies.

Weald’s LMH Series has been designed to perform to the requirements of MIL-C-26482 Series 1 and Patt 105. The connectors are also approved to IECQ-CECC spec BS/CECC 75201-003 and BS 9522 F0017.

Available in nine shell sizes and 33 shell styles, LMH Series connectors can be supplied from stock with 2 to 61 contacts in 20 contact arrangements. They can also be specified in a RoHS compliant olive drab finish.

Last year's hugely successful event attracted authorised visitors from across the defence community, with over 320 small, medium and large companies displaying equipment, systems and services including protected mobility and general support vehicles, tented accommodation, clothing, medical supplies, fuel and test equipment.

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.
