Nicomatic DMM Series Connectors, Micro-D-Mix

Press release date: Jul 01, 2012

Known for its CMM series connectors present in on-board electronics, mainly in defence and avionics, Nicomatic launches a new connector family.

The new DMM series is a robust, compact and shock resistant connector registered under trademark MICRO-D-MIX(TM). It is available in an all low frequency or mixed-layout configuration, with high frequency and/or high power contacts with possible arrangements of between 1 and 4 rows of up to 120 contacts.

DMM connectors offer high pin density (2mm pitch for signal contacts), as well as hybrid contacts (low frequency, high frequency, high power), which enables equipment miniaturization.

Compared to Micro-D connectors they offer a higher density, a lower profile and a much lighter solution. They are also much more flexible in terms of design, contact arrangements and mixed-layout possibilities.

The newly presented standard product range includes 2 product families:

Classic DMM series: LF (low frequency) contacts, for harness applications or Printed Circuit Boards, they are available in most popular shell sizes from the Micro-D market. These new connectors are easy to choose and fast to deliver with affordable pricing.
· LF contacts
· From 2 to 3 rows, 10 to 90 LF contacts
· >200 arrangements

My DMM series: LF, HF (High Frequency), HP (High Power) or hybrid connectors, a range based on multi-contact arrangements, offering free positioning with pre-defined shell sizes. This new series offers custom design possibilities with the advantage of an off-the-shelf product.
· Mixed layout
· From 1 to 4 rows, 2 to 120 LF contacts, 1 to 30 HP/HF contacts
· Panel mounting, racking and locking
· >20 000 arrangements

Nicomatic DMM series connectors, Micro-D-Mix A 3rd series; Exclusive DMM allows a much larger number of arrangements. You can use any type of contacts, any length or shell size for your unique technical constraints. These new bespoke connectors optimize space and weight savings. Over 2 million arrangements are possible.

Nicomatic fixings are the same whether you use a male or female connector. Covers are mountable without modifying the front or rear panel and the philosophy of the system is to be modular with simple and universal concepts.

Their compact design is ideal for miniature and portable devices or equipment used in the field, as well as on-board electronics, rack and panel mounting. For example the right angle (V type) connector offers the most compact solution ever seen on the market.

The connectors are designed and tested to withstand extreme conditions and their spec covers performance requirements in compliance with MIL-DTL-83513G (Micro-D standard).

In creating a connector system with a lower profile than the traditional MICRO-D, and in using standard components (fixings, HF, HP, LF contacts etc.), the cost of the product is reduced. In the same panel cut-out you can either use a male or female connector as the shape and size are identical. This is true both for rear and front mounting.

Main benefits:
· Saves space: low profile, high density package & small footprint
· Full modularity: signal, power & coax
· Easy maintenance: removable crimp contacts
· High flexibility: Front, rear panel mount...
· Short lead-time: Fast availability vs. Micro-D, low minimum delivery quantity
· Affordable: cost effective solution
· Reliable: As in MIL-DTL-83513G
