Eurosatory 2014

Gold-plated flex pin (ES14E2)

17 June 2014

Omnetics Connector Corporation (Hall 5, Stand J638), a designer and manufacturer of micro and nano miniature interconnectors, is introducing its latching Micro-D connector, a new push-and-latch design incorporating a one-piece flex pin for greater shock and vibration resistance, and finger grips to assist field operation.

This eliminates complications from uneven turning of traditional threaded hardware. The new design reduces the time and effort required to plug a Micro-D connector into a circuit, making it an excellent choice for systems that require more frequent module changing and rapid field replacement of systems where additional tools may not be available. The latching Micro-D, which supports up to 200 lb of pull force and is designed for more than 2,000 mating cycles, is said to be ideal for portable electronic modules and instruments, unmanned vehicles, and optical surveillance systems.
