Glenair’s TwistPin family of micro D-subminiature connectors is now available from Powell Electronics. The devices are designed to offer outstanding mating performance, high durability and minimal contact resistance for applications where interconnect failure is not an option. Further stated benefits include high current ratings, low circuit resistance and good EMI/RFI shielding.
The QPL83513 micro D and COTS connectors feature Glenair’s high-density micro TwistPin contacts set on .050 centers in arrangements from nine to 130 contacts. Thanks to material selection, fabrication and heat treatment techniques, TwistPin contacts resist high temperature stress relaxation for up to 1,000 hours at 125°C.
Available with insulated and uninsulated wire, PCB, solder cup and flex terminations, as QPL or commercial variations, the devices provide a reliable solution for high-performance interconnect requirements including high temperature and hermetic applications. Space-grade connectors with NASA and ESA screening options are also available.
