HARRISBURG, PA – TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity, announces its new two-row nanominiature rectangular connectors as the latest addition to its line of nanonics connectors. The ultra-compact and weight-saving connectors have been qualified to MIL-DTL-32139 specifications by the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Land and Maritime, and are designed to meet the rugged needs for applications within aerospace and defense, test and measurement, marine, and commercial air.
“TE has answered customers’ need for less expensive nanominiature products while providing interchangeability and meeting MIL-DTL-32139 specifications,” said Timothy A. Sheaffer, product manager, Global Aerospace, Defense, and Marine, TE Connectivity. “Factory-terminated leads in this new product reduce installation costs and the captive plug jackscrews eliminate the need for additional accessory hardware.”
Keyed housings also ease installation by virtually eliminating mismatch and stubbing during the mating process, and corrosion-resistant plating helps withstand harsh environments. In addition, the contacts are made of gold-plated copper alloy to withstand voltage from 250V at sea level, and 100V at 70,000 feet.
The new connectors consist of wired products with seven sizes from 9 to 51 positions. They are interchangeable and intermatable with most nanonics connectors including non-TE brands.
