MINNEAPOLIS, 2 June 2010. Omnetics Connector Corp. in Minneapolis is introducing the Nano Circular family of extremely small, rugged nano circular connectors for high-reliability applications in small spaces such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), surveillance cameras, and handheld remote controls.
The Nano Circular family has evolved from a standard plastic insulator to metal housings ranging from a threaded type, a BNC version, and a break-away option for quick-disconnect connector applications. Housing materials are available from aluminum, to stainless steel, to cadmium options. Black oxide and black anodizing options are available on request.
These lightweight nano circulars use Omnetics’s Nano Flex Pin split end contact, which complies with Mil-DTL 32139, and resists the effects of shock and vibration in helicopter flights and the hard landings of UAVs. The connectors also are suitable for military wearable electronics.
With a total mated length of 0.354 inches and outer diameters ranging from 0.122 to 0.217 inches, these connectors withstand temperature variations from -55 to 125 degrees Celsius, have polarized hard gold-plated contacts shrouded in Omnetics’s liquid crystal polymer housing to MIL-M-24519 to make them capable of more than 2,000 mating cycles.
Omnetics’s circular nano connectors are spaced on 25 mil (0.635mm) centerlines and are available in 6, 11, 16 and 28 position housing sizes with either pre-wired or solid straight tail terminations. Omnetics is able to supply elaborate wire harnesses, flex overmolding and custom shells as an option.
