TE Connectivity’s AMPLIMITE Ultra-Lite D-Subminiature connector is 15-20 percent lighter than its brass counterparts, delivering a critical weight-saving solution for space applications, including satellites and launch vehicles.
“TE’s AMPLIMITE Ultra-Lite connectors are excellent when saving weight is critical,” said Alana Martin, Product Manager, TE Global Aerospace, Defense & Marine. “Designed to meet NASA 311P requirements for space, the connector’s one-piece aluminum shell design not only offers significant advantages in weight, but improved EMI performance compared to standard brass connectors.”
AMPLIMITE Ultra-Lite connectors deliver a 10-20 dB improvement in EMI performance and meet the requirements for M24308. The non-magnetic connector features a one-piece lighter weight aluminum shell. The connector is intermateable with other D-Subminiature connectors, comes in shell sizes 1-6 and is offered in both standard- and high-density configurations.
The connector has a temperature range of -55°C to 125 C°, and is available in vertical and right-angle PCB mount versions. Crimp snap contacts speed wire termination and the connectors incorporate additional features for ease of assembly. Combination connectors with both power and signal contacts are also available, as is a rear grommet for strain relief.
