October 25, 2010 - Souriau is launching micro38999 miniature connectors developed from the MIL-DTL-38999. The micro38999 allows size and weight savings of 50% compared to the smallest MIL-DTL38999 Series III units. For many years, the need for more compact, lighter connection solutions, able to satisfy industrial requirements, has been growing. The rapid development of UAVs, sensors and on-board electronics, plus the emergence of composite materials, has driven the industry to reduce the size and weight of all equipment, including connectors.The micro38999 can withstand vibration of 44 Grms at a temperature of 125¬∞C for 8 hours. The electrical crimp contacts can be removed, enabling users to wire and unwire connectors directly on site. (The contacts used have a M39029 design: this provides further assurance of a high-quality secure connection.) In addition to the traditional platings available on the market, all micro38999 connectors can be supplied with non-reflective black Zinc Nickel protection, to satisfy the latest RoHS directives.This will enable many customers to benefit from a reliable miniature solution for their applications in severe or extreme operating environments.The micro38999 range is available with three different coupling systems: the threaded 8DA, the bayonet-coupled 8LTA, and the push-pull type 8BA.
