RS Components adds Micro-D connector series from Norcomp

Distributor, RS Components (RS), has announced availability of a new range of micro-miniature industrial connectors that are manufactured by Norcomp and which have been designed as a cost-effective and capable alternative to the use of military- and aerospace-rated micro-D connectors.

The 380/381/382/960 series of Micro-D connectors and cable assemblies are suitable for a number of commercial markets including robotics, telecommunications and instrumentation equipment, and other applications where space is at a premium but which also require a robust shielded I/O connector system.

The Micro-D series is available in three industry-standard sizes – 9, 15 and 25-way – as well as in vertical and right angle board-mount and cable-mount options. Offering a contact spacing of just 1.27mm (0.050-inch), the connectors are a third the size of standard D-sub connector types,but provide a metal-to-metal interface that supplies robust mechanical connection and shield effectiveness.

Able to mate with most commercial competitor products, other features of the series include a 1A contact rating and an operating temperature range of –55C to +85°C.
