Micro-Latch 83513

Omnetics now has available a full range of Micro-Latch connectors featuring contacts that have been tested to and pass requirements as laid down by MIL-DTL 83513. Featuring housings made of high temperature liquid crystal polymer, the devices save space and weight in critical applications including military and defence, medical and oil and gas.

Comments Gary Evans, Europe sales manager: "Our Micro-Latch connectors deliver the same performance as metal-shelled micro D types, but are 25 percent smaller and weigh on average 35 percent less than a standard equivalent micro D."

Micro-Latch 83513-style connectors feature secure quick snap latching, ensuring a reliable connection. They are optionally available as blind mate devices for use in extremely confined spaces, as for example in FLIR radar systems installed in Eurofighter designs, leading NATO helicopters, guidance systems for anti-mine weapons and even flown to Mars aboard NASA programs.

Flexibility is provided via a number of customer-specified options. Space restriction and difficult access issues are overcome by guide posts which facilitate 'blind mating' and also ensure that no misalignment is possible.
