DEUTSCH Wildcat series connectors

Higher Density for Harsh Conditions

TE's DEUTSCH Wildcat Series connectors enable integration of aerospace equipment and cabling in increasingly confined spaces.

TE's DEUTSCH Wildcat family of connectors answers the demanding needs of the aerospace industry. Wildcat connectors save weight and integrate aerospace equipment and cabling into increasingly confined spaces, with smaller, higher-density connectors capable of withstanding harsh environmental conditions such as vibration, high/low temperature and exposure to aggressive fluids. A range of shell and contact styles are available, including crimp and PCB contacts. 

The Wildcat Micro and Wildcat 38999 are both fully sealed with rear removable contacts and are available in various plating and material finishes including cadmium, zinc cobalt, ROHS compliant nickel.

Wildcat 38999 Connector

Based on MIL-DTL-38999 Series 3 technology the connectors are available in four housing sizes with between 11 and 64 contacts which provide almost double the contact density for a given 38999 connector size. The triple-start threaded interface provides a robust and high-reliability coupling mechanism with a high level of resistance to shock and vibration.

Mounting and rear accessory options are available enabling either backshell or cable braid and boot termination. As with the Micro series, the connectors are fully sealed with rear removable contacts and available in various plating and material finishes.
