38999 connectors

ITT Interconnect Solutions has introduced the high reliability 38999 series of connectors for both RF and signal contacts that supports up to 128 contacts and features superior EMI shielding while meeting stringent MIL-DTL-38999 series I, II and III standards.

"Originally designed for a petroleum customer needing a reliable signal and RF solution for exploration equipment, the connector had to perform well under severe environmental conditions including high temperatures, shock and vibration, while also being able to withstand corrosive elements," said Keith Teichmann, director of marketing for ITT. "In addition to meeting MIL-DTL-38999 standards, the connector is housed in a light-weight, low profile package and includes features ideal to the industrial and commercial markets, such as blind mate capability, rear release snap-in crimp contacts and a choice of bayonet or threaded coupling to facilitate quick and easy connection."

Along with harsh industrial applications such as petroleum exploration equipment, the 38999 series connector is ideal for avionics, military and commercial aircraft, and satellite applications.

The connector is 100 percent scoop proof and employs a corrosion-resistant aluminum alloy shell with cadmium over nickel plating. The connectors are capable of withstanding 500 hours of salt spry exposure. Custom designs and space-grade materials are also available.
