Ruggedized High Rel. Connectors Save Size and Weight with Increased Wire Counts

With many sizes and formats readily available in Omnetics COTs and Standards library, your prototype design can be assembled quickly and easily for initial testing and certification.   Standard contact sizes include 9, 15, 21, 25, 31, 37, 51, 65, and 85 pins, all at .025-in. pitch.  All wired sizes come pre-assembled with 18 in. of 30 AWG Teflon insulated wire, and circuit-board form factors range from horizontal and vertical surface-mount, to a number of through-hole configurations. Panel-mount housings are available and have the ability to include an environmental seal and will inter-mate with all MIL-DTL-32139 designs. These connectors exhibit high reliability by using qualified component elements only, which have passed QPL testing for military and aerospace applications. Omnetics’ flex-pin and socket system are plated to full military specifications and have greatly exceeded the number of mates and de-mates called out within MIL-DTL-32139.

Nano-D connectors, although small, have proven their toughness and reliability within circuitry used in weaponry, robotics, and future soldier systems, as well as Unmanned Vehicles technology. Other popular uses include: portable surveillance, mission-critical satellites, and down-hole drilling tools that reach and operate in temperatures exceeding 200° C. Most applications have high shock and vibration requirements that the Nano-D passes with flying colors. Omnetics has been a certified supplier to the military specification MIL-DTL-32139 for Nano-D connectors since 2007, and is well experienced in assembly, performance, and connector design. When customizing or varying from standard designs, Omnetics offers design support using SolidWorks 3D modeling. This can include adding back shells and cable shielding to assist in EMI Protection. Omnetics also offers a quick-latching format for designers looking to move away from the 0-80 jackscrews that come standard within the Nano-D family.
