HARRISBURG, Pa. – TE Connectivity in Harrisburg, Pa., is introducing the DBAS 9 connector use in the harsh environments of military and space applications.

This push pull connector combines the reliability of the DBAS 7 connector with the flexibility of standard D38999 inserts. The DBAS 9 connector also provides cost-effective solutions using AS39029 signal and power contacts.

“The DBAS 9 connector offers a solution for engineers looking for a connector that is easy to install and uninstall, while providing high performance that can withstand extreme shock, vibration and high temperatures up to 200 degrees Celsius,” says Aurélie Cordier, product manager for TE’s Aerospace, Defense, and Marine division.

The DBAS 9 connector is for harsh-environment applications like umbilical connectors for missiles and rockets that require lanyard quick release or rack and panel mating.
