Quick lock connectors cope with harsh environments

SMP-LOCK series quick-lock and secure connectors from Radiall provide the ease of use of a snap-on connector with the reliability of a screw-on connector.

They feature a tool-less coupling mechanism that makes fast, simple, and reliable connections in the tightest spaces.

The connectors are in stock at distributor Digi-Key.

Quick-lock connectors are typically ten times faster to mate than standard screw-on connectors, and they eliminate the need for a torque wrench. They feature low engagement force and enable higher interconnection density.

They allow for 360° cable rotation after installation, making cable routing much easier. Quick-lock and secure connectors are optimised for shock and vibration resistance in harsh environments, preventing accidental unmating.

Radiall's SMP-LOCK series is currently the smallest SMPM connector on the market with a locking system.

SMPM-LOCK features a robust locking mechanism that dramatically increases the retention force of the interface and prevents accidental disconnection. The right-angle plug version optimises space and makes it ideal for even the tightest spaces.

Applications include radar, missiles, electronic warfare, drones, auto directors and military radio.
