HARRISBURG, PA. TE Connectivity has released insert arrangements for the ARINC 600 next-gen receptacle connectors, which are designed for commercial and military avionics for air-to-ground communications and collision avoidance.
The insert arrangements also provide cost and weight savings, from a 10 to 40 percent reduction in cost and up to 10 percent in weight savings per connector, says Product Manager for Global Aerospace, Defense & Marine for TE Connectivity, Kim Whitman. For example:
• 60 position for size 1 ARINC shells; 100 position for size 2 ARINC shells; and 150 position for size 3 ARINC shells
• 120T2 and 68Q2 position for size 2 and size 3 ARINC shells
“Since TE Connectivity first launched the ARINC 600 Next Generation Receptacle connectors in 2010, many commercial and military avionics equipment makers have adopted our stamped and formed signal contact design, realizing significant cost savings as well as additional weight savings for their equipment,” Whitman continues.
The connectors are inter-matable with existing ARINC 600 plug connectors and deliver equivalent performance. TE also offers a solder-tail version for backwards compatibility with legacy printed circuit board designs.
