Ruggedized High Rel. Connectors save Size and Weight with increased wire counts

Eletter Product

Ruggedized High Rel. ConnectorsCircuit boards continue to evolve and are required to perform more functions in a smaller footprint.  Meanwhile, the physical number of wires needed for data acquisition and inter-circuit modules continue to escalate. As data speeds rise, differential signal routing too increases, as do the number of high-speed drain wires necessary. While this continues to be a design challenge for today’s modern-day designer, this growth in wire count can easily be solved using Omnetics’ Nano-D connectors wired in a format to account for these factors. Performance testing has proven: higher speed digital signals runs more efficient when some basic design rules are applied. 

Nano-D connectors although small, have proven their toughness and reliability time-in and time-out within circuitry used in weaponry, robotics, future soldier systems as well as Unmanned Vehicles technology. Most applications have high shock and vibration requirements that the Nano-D passes with flying colors. Omnetics has been a certified supplier to the military specification MIL-DTL-32139 for Nano-D connectors since 2007, and is well experienced in assembly, performance and connector design. When customizing or varying from standard designs, Omnetics offers design support using SolidWorks® 3D modeling.  This can include adding back shells and cable shielding to assist in EMI Protection. Omnetics also offers a quick-latching format for designers looking to move away from the 0-80 jackscrews that come standard within the Nano-D family.
