SOUTHAMPTON, Pa., 5 Feb. 2012. CW Industries in Southampton, Pa., is introducing a high-density rectangular connector for advanced missile systems, torpedoes, flight guidance systems, and related military electronics equipment. The CCM-20, 21, 22, and 23 series connectors are made of glass filled polyester with beryllium copper alloy contacts that are gold plated in the mating area, and offer enhanced retention and solderability features that meet MIL-DTL-28804, as well as NAVSEA 3164341 and 3164342.
Rated at five amps per contact with a temperature rise of less than 300 degrees Celsius after three hours of each contact continuously conducting 5 amps, this padded-design rugged connector provides a means for improved solder flow and for post solder visual inspection. The termination end is solder dipped over nickel plating. This connector reduces foreign object damage (FOD) by eliminating other means such as washers or inserts for a visual quality assurance check.
CW's custom designed inserts to the company's interconnect technology offer enhanced retention to meet high altitude heat and shock vibration requirements. These connectors meet a minimum 80 ounces of torque and an 80-pound axial pullout force. Pin counts of 38, 50, 88, 108, and 132 are available with a standard pin length of .250 ±0.025. Other lengths and pin counts are available on request.
