TE Connectivity recently announced its new AMPLIMITE IP67 D-subminiature connectors meet IP67 performance levels. Designed to meet MIL-DTL-24308 specifications, the new connectors have an environmental sealing that has been successfully tested at a submerged depth of one meter and have water and dust ingress protection to IP67.
"We're continually striving to make connectors that are smaller, lighter, and extremely reliable," said Kris Beaver, product manager, Global Aerospace, Defense & Marine, TE Connectivity. "The AMPLIMITE IP67 D-subminiature connectors are the latest example of products designed to help withstand the harsh environments of the military and aerospace applications."
The sealed AMPLIMITE cable connectors come in two series: series 109 standard-density, using size 20 contacts and series 90 high-density, using size 22 contacts. The connectors include both grommet sealing on the wire-entry end and a one-piece interfacial seal on the mating face. They are supplied with rear-release crimp contacts. The connectors use AS39029 QPL contacts and are intermatable with standard D-subminiature connectors. They have a temperature range of minus 55°C to 125°C.
