Hypertronics announces a new level of performance for MIL-DTL-38999 connectors

Hypertronics Corporation, a 35-year leader in high reliability interconnect solutions, announced at the IEEE AutoTestCon event here today a new line of rugged connectors for military, aerospace and industrial applications. Designated "HyperRel", the connectors feature Hypertac' hyperboloid contact technology embedded in MIL-C-38999 Series III style shells.

According to Ted Tower, HyperRel Product and Technical Support Manager for Hypertronics, "This represents the best of both worldsŸa popular connector style for harsh environments, and the industry's most reliable interconnect technology inside. Design engineers can now take 38999 performance to the next level."

The widely acclaimed Hypertac contact technology uniquely offers a contact sleeve that is formed by wires strung at an angle to the socket's axis. When the pins are inserted into the sleeve, the wires stretch around it, providing numerous linear contact paths. The pin-into-hyperboloid-basket design delivers such advantages as low contact forces, low contact resistance, and exceptionally high mating cycles. Most importantly for rugged applications, the connector technology ensures signal integrity while eliminating contact fretting under the most severe shock and vibration conditions.

The new connectors are available in both metal and composite shell types. HyperRel Metal (HRM) connectors provide the maximum performance in relation to shock, vibration and EMI resistance. A general duty threaded connector, the HRM series features thick wall sections and a greater coupling surface with 100% metal-to-metal bottoming, a superior anti-coupling system and a proven dielectric contact retention. Additionally, elongated mounting holes permit the HRM connector to fit with existing standard MS/38999 box or wall mount receptacles.

HyperRel Composite (HRC) devices eliminate corrosion, the main cause of mechanical, electrical and electromagnetic connector degradation and failure. Electromotive force differentials between many dissimilar metals found in connectors and accessories produce galvanic action. The HRC eliminates these dissimilar metals resulting in an interconnection system that withstands 2,000 hours of salt spray. Both the HRM and the HRC MIL-C-38999 intermateable HyperRel connectors are detailed in a new supplement to the Hypertronics full-line catalog, together with more details about the Hypertac contact technology, which is accepted by military, aerospace, industrial and medical users to be the contact technology of choice.
