Rugged metal nano-connectors for unmanned aircraft introduced by Omnetics
MINNEAPOLIS, 16 June 2014. Omnetics Connector Corp. in Minneapolis is introducing the Metal Nano-Connectors high-density, multi-position connectors made with break-away or threaded metal housings for unmanned aircraft systems (UASs) and other mission-critical aerospace and defense applications.
The Metal Nano-Connectors offer positive lock and environmental seal, and are built to meet or exceed military specifications. The UAS applications of these connectors include circuits, cameras, and other instruments that require cable and interconnects that are extremely small and lightweight, yet that can withstand high shock and vibrations while maintaining electrical integrity.
The Omnetics line of Metal Nano-Connectors can survive ruggedness tests beyond military specifications. Temperature ranges exceed 200 degrees Celsius and locking screws hold connections together securely even during tough landings.
Board-mounted versions of the Metal Nano-Connectors mate up with pre-wired connectors and cables for instrument wiring. The connectors are available in four shell sizes: 6, 11, 16, and 28 positions arranged on a .025-inch pitch and are capable of 1 amp per contact.
They can be configured with different levels of waterproof sealing to IP-68. A variety of shell material and finishes are available including nickel-plated brass and back oxide stainless steel.
