Aerco offers five-day turnaround assembly for TT Electronics connectors

Distributor and stockist of electrical and electronic components, Aerco, offers a fast turnaround assembly capability of typically just five days on both the ABCIRP and ABMP ranges of circular connectors from TT Electronics.

ABCIRP and ABMP signal/high speed data connectors suit rail, defence and industrial applications.  Aerco stocks a variety of piece parts, including backshells, caps, contacts and multi-pole contacts, and supports entire ranges in all orientations.  Moreover, there is no MOQ, adds Aerco.

The distributor’s capability supports sudden shortage or design requirements, and is an invaluable tool for engineers/buyers, particularly for the rail market, which often requires fast turnaround and quick design decisions.

ABMP and ABCIRP connectors share a high-performance, positive lock, quick disconnect, reverse-bayonet coupling mechanism that ensures fast and reliable mating.  ABCIRP contacts are retained by a beryllium copper spring clip that, together with secure three-pin bayonet locking, ensures a high degree of vibration and shock resistance without costly and time consuming wire-locking.  ABMP interconnect contacts are held in securely by a two-piece insert. 

Low fire hazard thermoplastic insulators are used to meet critical safety requirements and the insulators are removable, allowing flexibility for re-orientation or providing additional capacity at a later date.  ABMP and ABCIRP interconnects are also protected to IP67 and are resistant to fuel oils and solvents, making them particularly suitable for polluted environments. The connectors operate at temperatures between -55 and +125 degree C.  Shock and vibration tested to BSEN6137 Cat 1, the TT Electronics’ ranges are durable, and capable of being mated in excess of 2,000 times. Removable contacts allow simple assembly and maintenance.

ABCIRP connectors are derived from Mil-C-5015 and VG95234 specifications and designed primarily for the demanding rail and mass transportation industries. They are approved to the French rail specification N.F.F. 61030. The range includes eight shell sizes (18 to 40), nine contact arrangements (7 to 60 ways) with contact sizes 16, 12 and 8 AWG. 

The ABMP series is based on ABCIRP, but adds twin-ax and quadrax capability. It is designed for interconnection of signal and high-speed data interconnection in rail, traction, industrial and defence applications. Four styles of multi-pole contacts are available in any combination of co-ax, twin-ax, tri-ax or quadrax providing versatile, high-speed data connectors capable of handling seven high-speed Ethernet connections or numerous combinations of signal and data links.
