Positronic MACH-D connectors for harsh-environment applications like defense and deep space from FC Lane

Sept. 7, 2022
MACH-D MIL-DTL-24308-style D-Subminiature connectors are of machined aluminum or stainless-steel for durability, and electromagnetic compatibility.

HORSHAM, England – Electronics distributor FC Lane Electronics in Horsham, England, is introducing the MACH-D connector from Positronic, an Amphenol company in Springfield, Mo., for harsh-environment applications such as defense electronics, commercial aircraft, medical devices, and deep space.

All MACH-D Standard MIL-DTL-24308-style D-Subminiature connectors feature machined aluminum or stainless-steel shells for durability, precision, planarity, and electromagnetic compatibility.

MACH-D connectors are intermateable with standard M24308-type D-Subs and in many cases outperform the minimum requirements as outlined in MIL-DTL-24308. Additionally, MACH-Ds are performance-comparable and mechanically compatible with Glenair's Series 28 HiPer-D connectors.

The Positronic MACH-D connectors are available in standard and high-density signal contact arrangements as well as hybrid versions, which combine power and signal in a single connector body and custom options are available on request.

MACH-D connectors have options including keyed jackscrews, rear silicone grommets, interfacial seals, EMI grounding strips, and a 360-degree banding feature for when space limitations preclude the use of a full-size backshell.
