HAMPTON, N.H., 20 Jan. 2008. QA Technology Co. in Hampton, N.H., is introducing 1.5-millimeter contacts and a 3-pin power connector with a current rating in excess of 12 amps and with a 12-wire hyperboloid cage.
The contacts and connectors are part of the company's integraMate hyperboloid contact and connector product family.
The core technology of integraMate is a hyperboloid wire cage contact design that offers a low mating force, high cycle life, and resistance to shock and vibration.
The integraMate contacts also have an inherently smaller diameter than traditional hyperboloid contacts which means that they can be used when better electrical ratings or higher densities are desirable in a connector, company officials say.
QA's integraMate D-Series circular connectors incorporate high-density integraMate hyperboloid contacts. The durable housings for the plug and receptacle are molded from impact resistant polycarbonate.
The cable-mounted plug has a sturdy push button latch; the receptacle is mounted on the instrument panel. Cable clamps and bend reliefs for the plugs are available to suit a range of cable diameters.
Three patterns with 0.6-millimeter contacts are currently available in the integraMate D-Series family: 7, 9 and 14 contacts. A 3-position plug and receptacle with 1.5-millimeter contacts are now available for power applications. The pins and sockets are easily removable from the housings, and both contact sizes are available with crimp or solder terminations.
Applications include military and aerospace, medical and dental equipment, and scientific instruments where dependability and durability are essential.
