Omnetics has recently unveiled a set of micro-circular and nano-circular connectors designed for high quality signal and EMI protection. The circular connectors use the company's proprietary spring-pin system (Flex-Pin) that is also used in both nano connectors and the micro connectors that are QPL approved for MIL-DTL-32139 and MIL-DTL-83513.

Special nickel and gold plating of the mating elements provide reliable performance for more than 2,000 mates and de-mates per connector. Shell and housing designs are available in a number of options consisting of inline, front, rear as well as protruding panel mount configurations. Mating options include: Twist Lock (BNC type), threaded and even new break-away formats. Overmolded back shells and cable strain reliefs can be easily designed to match unique applications. Pin counts are available up to 27 positions for the micro-circular line and up to 28 positions in the nano-circular series.

Omnetics' new "SureCon" series offers contact arrangements of 6, 11 and 16 positions, offering a water-tight seal for applications demanding certification of immersion for up to 1m for 30 minutes, often stated in IP-67 standards.

Applications using Omnetics' micro and nano-circular connectors span a wide range from medical instrumentation to portable ruggedized modules within the military and aerospace industry. Both micro and nano-miniature circular connector insulator formats are being designed for built-in applications. Robotics and prosthetic devices as well use micro and nano-sized connectors' in-line at key joint and bending positions to assist in signal transmission, as well as to allow quick repair and replacement of the extended portions of the instrument.
