A connector designed for high reliability miniaturization of military, aerospace and medical equipment

Omnetics launches panel mounted latching Micro-D connectors

Omnetics Connector Corporation launches their Latching Micro-D™ connectors with a new squeeze-latch system that offers significant advantages in making quick cable connections to rack and panel equipment. In addition to being very small and light weight, the new latching Micro-D™ connectors, at .050" pitch have passed extensive shock and vibration testing, including pull tests that exceeds 100 pound pull force. The new push-and-latch design significantly reduces the time and effort required to plug a Micro-D connector into a circuit. It also eliminates the use of screwdrivers and hand tools. Design and layout details can be seen at http://www.omnetics.com/Latching-Micro-D/

Miniaturized instruments used in unmanned vehicle systems, optical surveillance, and portable electronics often require quick connect and disconnect methods not readily available before the Latching Micro-D™ connector. Medical devices, such as surgery tools, ultrasound monitors, and optical scopes require frequent connection and removal from instrument panels. The panel-mount connectors offer options for connecting inside the instrument, including P.C. board lead frames and direct wiring. Highly rugged and compact designs using aluminum alloy 6061 shells with nickel plating, offer contact counts from 9 to 51 positions. Omnetics uses a one piece beryllium copper flex pin design, plated with nickel/gold for robust service that operates from -55° to +125°C. Wired connectors include 26 AWG Teflon® insulated copper wire that provides up to 3 amps per line. A wide range of wire count and cables can be designed into custom back-shells for long range ruggedized service. Cable systems include braided shields to reduce electrical noise interference, (EMI) and cross talk. Digital signals from optical surveillance systems, low voltage differential signals and even lower current power supplies are fitting the quick-change design opportunities of the new Latching Micro-D connection system. The Latching Micro-D™ offers high reliability, light weight, rugged, quick-connection system has become the perfect fit for many miniaturized equipment designs. Conversion from the older jackscrew designs are done by adding a simple "latching adapter" to existing Micro-D connectors.
