SANTA ANA, Calif., 21 July 2009. ITT Interconnect Solutions in Santa Ana, Calif., is introducing the high reliability mil spec 38999 Series military connector for RF and signal contacts with EMI shielding and adherence to MIL-DTL-38999 series I, II and III standards.
The military connectors are for harsh applications such as military, avionics, commercial aircraft, satellite, and petroleum exploration applications.
The connector is scoop proof and employs a corrosion-resistant aluminum alloy shell with cadmium over nickel plating. The connectors are capable of withstanding 500 hours of salt spry exposure. Custom designs and space-grade materials are also available.
"Originally for a petroleum customer needing a reliable signal and RF solution for exploration equipment, the connector had to perform well under severe environmental conditions including high temperatures, shock and vibration, while also being able to withstand corrosive elements," says Keith Teichmann, director of marketing for ITT Interconnect Solutions.
"The connector is housed in a light-weight, low profile package and includes has to the industrial and commercial markets, such as blind mate capability, rear release snap-in crimp contacts and a choice of bayonet or threaded coupling to facilitate quick and easy connection."
