More uses for military connectors

In partnership with AB Connectors, Aerco offers a new range of connectors derived from the D38999 series three military connectors. Products feature extended capability to serve a wider range of applications, plus a variety of contact options, including size eight power and high speed quadrax contacts.

New products include PCB contact versions in varying tail lengths and PCB stand-off connectors that remove stress from the contacts and are specifically designed for high vibration environments. In addition to preventing de-coupling, the stand-off design also takes up less space than conventional products.

Versions with an integrated clinch nut ensure secure locking of both panel-mount and box-mount connectors while avoiding the use of nuts and washers, while through-bulkhead versions allow plug connection on both sides of a bulkhead, creating a sealed barrier. There is also a version of the free connector with an integral backshell that enables easy termination of a shielded cable and/or heat shrink boot.
