ITT Develops Micro-D Pi Filter Connector for Military, Avionics Applications
SANTA ANA, Calif. - October 11, 2007 - ITT Electronic Components, a leading global manufacturer and supplier of connectors, interconnects, and cable assemblies, has developed a robust Micro-D connector with exceptional attenuation. Designated the TMDMP filter, the connector utilizes a unique internal filter design, providing the density needed to accommodate the ferrite tubes necessary for Pi filtering in military and aerospace applications.
"Unlike conventional "C" type filters, the "Pi" filter design utilizes two capacitors around a ferrite inductor, providing a significantly better attenuation curve," said Keith Teichmann, director of product management for ITT Electronic Components. "This design is also lightweight yet rugged, and housed in a reduced package size, making it suitable for harsh environments, particularly those with space constraints."
Completely intermateable with MIL-DTL-83513, the TMDMP filter connector is ideal for integrated avionics and electronic warfare, satellites and space systems, radar and sensors, weapon controls and targeting systems. Additional applications include displays, instrumentation, data processing, radio, navigation, and telecommunications.
The TMDMP filter connector is available in 5 sizes: 9, 15, 21, 25 and 37, with contacts for both sockets (receptacle) and pins (plugs). The connector features rugged aluminum shells, and soldering to the printed wiring board is facilitated by expanded contact terminal spacing. Capacitance values include H, L, M and T.
Pricing for the TMDMP filter connector ranges from $150 to $200 in quantities of 100. Lead time is from 12 to 14 weeks.
ITT Electronic Components is an international supplier of connectors, including circular, rectangular, fiber optic, RF, power and high voltage, audio and application custom specific connectors, PCMCIA and Compact Flash Card connectors and enclosures, and cable assemblies. ITT Electronic Components includes the brands Cannon, VEAM and BIW. www.ittcannon.com
