TE Connectivity introduces AMPLIMITE ultra-lite D-subminiature connectors for space applications

TE connectorsHARRISBURG, Pa. 22 June 2012. TE Connectivity, a producer of connectors, introduced the new AMPLIMITE Ultra-Lite D-Subminiature connector family, which use an aluminum shell instead of a brass shell. These connectors are 15-20 percent lighter than their brass counterparts, delivering a weight-saving connector option for space applications such as satellites and launch vehicles.

TE's AMPLIMITE Ultra-Lite connectors meet NASA 311P requirements for space, and the connector's one-piece aluminum shell design not only offers advantages in weight and EMI performance when compared to standard brass connectors.

AMPLIMITE Ultra-Lite connectors deliver a 10-20 dB improvement in EMI performance and meet the requirements for M24308. The non-magnetic connector features a one-piece lighter weight aluminum shell. The connector can be mated with other D-Subminiature connectors, comes in shell sizes one through six and is offered in both standard- and high-density configurations.

The connector has a temperature range of -55C to 125C, and can be ordered in vertical and right-angle PCB mount versions. Combination connectors with both power and signal contacts are also available, as is a rear grommet for strain relief.
