Complex capabilities of today’s smart munitions require a high level of interconnection. Multifunctional levels of capability drive the need for more complex processing in a smaller, lighter weapons package. Rapidfire weapon systems demand solutions to withstand the high shock and vibration they exhibit. TE is creating the next generation of interconnect products to help to meet the most stringent electrical and physical demands.
Expanded Beam Fiber Optics
TE’s optics design incorporates a ball lens into a ruggedized connector with outstanding reliability and ease of maintainability. Add in an armored cable for the perfect optical assembly package.
DEUTSCH DMC-M EN4165 Connectors
With aluminum alloy or composite shells, DMC-M connectors are lightweight multi-module connectors that give you modularity to deploy signal, power, optical, and high-speed connectivity.
Micro D Connectors
TE’s Micro D connectors are qualified to M83513 standard. These high density, low-profile connectors are available in circular and rectangular formats. Our new offerings include high-speed signal and power, and can be put into a single housing to help support maximum space and weight savings.
Design engineered from the beginning, our harnesses are small, lightweight, rugged, and environmentally sealed. Each design is customer specific and tailored to help meet your strictest requirements.
DEUTSCH DMC-M Series Multicavity EN4165
Standardized in European Standard EN4165, DMC-M connectors provide a modular, flexible, and reliable system. The connectors are available in both multi-cavity and single-module configurations, using the same modules, to provide compact, lightweight connectivity. Today this connector continues to attract new users and applications because of its modularity, space/weight savings and robustness. In addition, it has evolved to include composite housings, aluminum wire capability, fiber optics, higher densities, and shunting configurations.
