Lightweight rugged aluminum connectors for low-pressure aviation and avionics applications introduced by ITT



SANTA ANA, Calif., 11 July 2011. The ITT Corp. Interconnect Solutions segment in Santa Ana, Calif., is introducing the KJAYA series MIL-DTL 38999 series III-style rugged connector for low-pressure applications such as avionics, ground radars, radios, battery packs, weapon controls, aircraft bulkheads, and military video surveillance systems. The connector uses lightweight aluminum shells that are air- and water-tight for use in pressures to 15 pounds per square inch.


The lightweight aluminum connector has copper-based contacts and drop-in PC tail connectors for termination to the printed circuit board or flex circuitry. Connectors employing crimp contacts are available with standard M39029/57 short socket contacts for pin and socket layouts.

"Although standard MIL-DTL-38999 series III Class Y hermetic connectors provide enhanced performance in high-pressure applications, the heavy steel shells and contacts have severe consequences on the weight of the connector," says Dom Lecce, product manager at ITT Interconnect Solutions.
