Solderless connectors provide field replaceable connectivity
Intelliconnect (Europe) has extended its range of solderless, field-replaceable connectors to include a version for 0.047in. semi-rigid cables. When assembled, semi-rigid cables can be factory formed or routed as required in situ.
Typical applications include civil and military telecommunications, civil and military aeronautics, military equipment, space and measurement systems.
This clamp connector series offers customers a convenient alternative for terminating semi-rigid cable with no loss in performance or reliability.
Other solderless attachment connectors from Intelliconnect are available for 0.085in. and.0.141in. cables.
The stainless-steel 0.04in., 2.9mm and SMA connectors have been designed for applications where reliability, durability, robustness and high-frequency performance are very important.
Key features include field replaceable capability, guaranteed equivalent performance to solder connection, no special tooling required and cable retention force similar to soldered versions.
System designers will find the main advantages of these solderless connectors are faster assembly time, repeatability and high performance and they also provide field replaceable connectivity in the event of wear or damage to the connector.
Roy Philips, managing Director of Intelliconnect (Europe), comments, “the addition of our new 0.047” semi rigid cable connector extends the choice of solderless connectors available to our customers and provides a very useful alternative to conventional types for assembling connectors to a wide range of cables with no loss in performance or reliability. Solderless assembly speeds manufacture and facilitates field replacement in the event of wear or damage to the connector.”
