Micro-miniature connectors offer mil-spec alternative
Availability of a new range of micro-miniature industrial connectors manufactured by Norcomp has been announced by RS Components. They are a cost-effective and highly capable alternative to the use of military- and aerospace-rated micro-D connectors.
The 380/381/382/960 series of Micro-D connectors and cable assemblies has been designed for commercial markets including robotics, telecommunications and instrumentation equipment, and other applications where space is at a premium yet which also require a robust shielded I/O connector system.
The Micro-D series is available in three industry-standard sizes – 9, 15 and 25-way – as well as in vertical and right angle board-mount and cable-mount options.
Offering a contact spacing of just 1.27mm (0.050-inch), the connectors are less than a third the size of standard D-sub connector types, yet deliver a metal-to-metal interface that provides robust mechanical connection and shield effectiveness.
Able to mate with most commercial competitor products, other features of the series include a 1A contact rating and an operating temperature range of –55C to +85°C.
The Norcomp range of industrial Micro-D connectors is shipping now from RS in the EMEA and Asia Pacific regions.
