Rugged miniature circular connectors for military communications applications
14 October 2010
Acal Technology is currently offering new rugged miniature circular connectors from Amphenol for military communications applications. The brass base metal Terrapin connectors are crush-resistant and feature IP68 sealing on both halves when mated. The 2,000+ mating cycle is four times greater than MIL-C standard bayonet and thread coupling connectors. A black silver-plating provides superior EMC performance as well as a low-lustre, non-reflective finish which is salt-spray resistant (1,000 hour test period). Five keying options prevent mis-mating and the same plug can mate to either a latch or snatch receptacle. The connectors are compatible with Gigabit Ethernet and USB 2.0.
