Avionics connectors in 48-hours

PEI-Genesis has added ITT Cannons BKA series ARINC 600 rack-and-panel connectors to its product range, now with a 48-hour assembly service. Used in commercial and military avionics systems, ARINC 600 connectors provide a high-density, high-reliability interface between the airframe and equipment packages for applications such as traffic collision avoidance systems, engine indicator crew alert systems and airborne information management systems.

Stocks of piece-parts at PEI-Genesis will enable the company to build over 10,000 different BKA configurations in accordance with both Airbus and Boeing BACC66 specifications. The connectors can be specified with an alodine or electroless nickel finish and are available in four different shell sizes with a choice of more than 35 different inserts. An optional EMI grounding spring on the plug shell provides typical shielding of 63dB.

Featuring a low-insertion-force, the BKA series is designed to ensure fast installation, even under blind mating conditions. Shock and vibration performance complies with MIL-STD-1344.
