ESA approved PCB connectors from Smiths Interconnect now available through TTI 

ESA approved KMC and MHD series PCB connectors from Smiths Interconnect,  using Hypertac Hyperboloid contact technology can now be sourced in Europe through TTI.

The high density KMC series device features three rows mixing signal, power, and coaxial contacts. The MHD series (pictured) product is equipped with signal and HE 807 cavities for power and coaxial contacts. It offers from 52 up to 400 contact positions and is available in two housing versions, ruggedised metal shell and plastic shell.

Both connector series benefit from low contact resistance and a long contact life of more than 5000 mating cycles. The connectors are described as highly resistant to shock, vibrations and fretting, making them suitable for severe environments encountered in commercial aviation, defence, and space applications.

MHD series connectors meet ESA-ESCC 3401/065 specifications and KMC series products are qualified according to ESCC 3401/039.
