Size & Weight Savings for Rugged Environments
Ten times smaller in volume and about 10 percent the weight of a standard Micro- D connector, TE’s nano connectors also provide e l e c t r ic a l and mec h a n ic a l advantages such as voltage ratings of 500 V at sea level versus 250 V (for others) and 500 mating cycles versus 200. They are available with temperature ranges as wide as -200° c to +200°c. “Despite their smal l nanominiature connectors are
size, designed for rugged applications, with the capability of withstanding significant levels of shock and vibration, salt spray, outgassing and other envi ronmen t a l and mechanical hazards,” said Scott C a irns, manager , product management, TE Aerospace, Defence & Marine. Typical applications include space, smart munitions, missile defence, aircraft communications and UAVs.
