Omnetics Announces New and Improved Latching Micro-D(TM) Connectors

Press release date: March 20, 2014

Ideal for high shock and vibration applications

Omnetics Connector Corporation, a worldwide designer and manufacturer of micro and nano miniature interconnect products, announces its new and improved latching Micro-D™ connector, which can be mated or un-mated without the need for a screwdriver or hand tools. Built to meet or exceed the testing specified in MIL-DTL-83513 specifications, the small, lightweight, high strength latching Micro-D connectors have passed extensive shock and vibration testing, and are ideal for use in military, aerospace, oil and gas exploration, and robotics applications.

The new push-and-latch design incorporates finger grips to assist field operation, and can be used by those wearing bulky gloves or no gloves at all. The squeeze-latch system provides quick cable connections to mating connectors and panel equipment and the rapid connection and release offers proven signal integrity for portable and ruggedized electronics applications. Complications from uneven turning of traditional threaded hardware are no longer a problem. Also available is an adapter that provides easy mounting of the squeeze latch system on existing Micro-D connectors.

The new design significantly reduces the time and effort required to plug a Micro-D connector into a circuit, making them an excellent choice for systems that require more frequent module changing, and rapid field replacement of systems where additional tools may not be available. The latching Micro-D is perfect for portable electronic modules and instruments, unmanned vehicles, and optical surveillance systems, as well as electronic bit sensor and controls in petroleum down hole drilling equipment.

Now made with stainless steel latch material, the high reliability latching Micro-D connector exceeds 200 pounds of pull force. Available in shell styles from 9 to 51 contacts, and at both .025-inch and .050-inch spacing, the latching Micro-D connector incorporates Omnetics’ unique one-piece flex pin design for greater shock and vibration resistance. The gold-plated flex pin is designed for more than 2,000 mating cycles.
