Standard d-sub connectors to MIL-DTL-24308 are built using an 0.100″ pitch, but increasingly this footprint does not fulfill today’s military or advanced electronics system specifications for weight and space.
Accordingly, In2Connect offer a wide range of twist pin, Micro ‘D’ subminiature connectors with an 0.050″ contact pitch: plugs, sockets, hoods and accessories with 9, 15, 21, 25, 31, 37, 51, 66, 74 and 100 ways. Ideal for mission critical applications like aerospace, aviation, electronic, and military communications.
Because of their 10 strand BeCu, male twist pin contacts these connectors have a low electrical transfer resistance (due to the ‘birdcage’ shape providing multiple points of contact with the mating socket) and can therefore achieve high mating cycles and resistance to shock and vibration. Male and female d-sub connectors fit more precisely together and give a more reliable, gas-tight connection with more tolerance to vibration.
Micro D-subs offer 3 to 4 times the contact density of a Standard D-sub layout whilst, by virtue of the shell design, maintaining the D sub connectors automatic polarisation.
Micro D-subs are qualified and approved to MIL-DTL-83513 which is the United States Department of Defense Logistics Agency’s detailed specification controlling dimensions, materials, performance and test regimes. MIL-DTL-83513 covers Micro-D Sub connectors having plastic or metal shells. Sunkye R04 Series Microminiature Rectangular Connectors have plastic bodies. Sunkye R04J Series Microminiature Rectangular Connectors have Aluminium or Stainless Steel bodies.
