Press Release Summary:
Combining aluminum or titanium shells with beryllium copper CDA Alloy 172/173 pins, MIL-DTL compatible Filtered 38999 Connectors operate fromÂ -55 to 125Â°C. Each pin features individual L-, Pi-, or C-section EMI filters that can be potted with silicone or epoxy or hermetically sealed with polycrystalline ceramic. Connectors using C- and L-section filters support 5–15 A and working voltage of 50–400 Vdc, while connectors using Pi-section filters support 10 A and working voltage of 50–300 Vdc.
Original Press Release:
Hermetic 38999 Style Connectors With Integrated EMI Filters
SOURIAU PA&E has a long history of developing hermetic MIL-DTL compatible 38999 connectors optimized for high electrical performance, light weight and small footprints. Now, the company has added integrated EMI filtering capabilities into the mix, following the introduction of its filtered 38999 connector product line.
SOURIAU PA&E's filtered 38999 compatible connectors combine aluminum or titanium shells (that allow the connectors to be integrated into lightweight housings) with beryllium copper CDA Alloy 172/173 pins for high electrical performance. Each pin features individual L-, Pi- or C-section EMI filters that can be potted with silicone or epoxy or hermetically sealed with SOURIAU PA&E's rugged polycrystalline ceramic, Kryoflex.
These filtered connectors are custom configured to meet a range of EMI filter performance parameters. Connectors using C- and L-section filters can support 5-15 amps, working voltage of 50- 400 VDC with a minimum insertion loss of between 2 and 70dB, depending on configuration. Connectors using Pi-section filters support 10 amps and a working voltage of 50-300 VDC with a minimum insertion loss of between 2 and 70dB, depending on configuration.
They are available in all standard MIL-DTL pin counts and configurations and shell finish options include passivated nickel/gold plate or chromite conversion coating as applicable. Depending on configuration, these connectors can have a leak rate at less than 1X10-9cc/sec Helium at 1 atmospheric differential pressure. They provide greater than 5,000 Megohms at 400 VDC and exhibit no evidence of breakdown or flashover when tested in IAW MIL-STD-1344, Method 3003. SOURIAU PA&E hermetic filtered 38999 compatible connectors have a typical operating temperature range -55°C to 125°C.
