Omnetics has announced a Polarized Nano connector line that according to the company features the firm's military style pin and socket designs. The PZN series offers uninterrupted electrical connections for portable applications that are exposed to high shock and vibration environments, noted Omnetics.

PZN connector contact spacing is set at 25 one thousandths of an inch and the design uses both male and female contacts in the same polarized insulator. The contacts are beryllium-copper flex pin systems plated with nickel and gold to assure long-range performance.

Polarized Nano connector series. Offers uninterrupted electrical connections for portable applications that are exposed to high shock and vibration environments.

Teflon insulated 32 gauge twisted copper wire offers maximum flexibility of the interconnect system. Interface mating and alignment is assisted by the design of the insulator shell. Most applications include surface or through-hole board mounted designs mated to fine wire plug sets. Contact counts range from 4 to 12 positions and can be configured in a number of standard tail types as well as modified to meet custom requirements. The latest design has been increased to 24 positions to accommodate unique high-signal count circuitry in portable miniature circuits, said the company.

Current applications that benefit from the extreme miniaturisation include; military surveillance camera circuits (for portable and remote weapon systems), portable computers (for remote mission systems), robotic hands, retracting arms, and even ground controlled robotics benefit from their rugged space saving design. One unique design, in particular, is aimed at down-hole electronic measurement technology.

Modern medical designers are increasingly using the PZN format to squeeze more electronics into smaller devices used to monitor and provide patient services. Other possible applications using the PZN connectors include; drive circuits for hand-held laser and orthopedic tools. Custom connector design and solid models are available upon request. Miniature cabling is custom designed by Omnetics, or selected by the customer to meet the electrical requirements and fit the small size of the connectors.
