Connector caters for rf and signal contacts in severe operating environments

Originally commissioned for a petroleum company designing exploration equipment, the 38999 connector from ITT Interconnect Solutions, has been designed to deliver an interconnect for both rf and signal contacts.

Designed according to stringent military requirements and defined by the MIL-DTL-38999 standard, ITT says that the connectors are able to withstand extreme temperatures, high levels of shock and vibration, corrosive agents as well as sand and dust.

ITT's 38999 connector meets MIL-DTL-38999 requirements Series I, II, III but also offers a variety of features that cater to different industrial and commercial needs, such as blind mate, rear release snap in crimp contacts and a choice of bayonet coupling or threaded coupling.

Supporting up to 128 contacts, the connector features a low profile and low weight, has emi shielding and corrosion resistant shells of aluminum alloy with cadmium over nickel plating are said to withstand a 500hour salt spry exposure.

Applications include avionics, military and commercial aircraft, satellites and industrial equipment. Special and custom capabilities can also be catered for and space grade connectors are available.
