Military connector series advances on Europe

Now available in Europe, the 2M micro miniature military connector series is designed for interconnect applications requiring high performance and reduced size and weight, says Amphenol Socapex. The connector series was launched in Europe in partnership with Amphenol Aerospace Operation (AAO) and Amphenol Interconnects Manufacturing Systems (AIMS).

The 2M micro miniature connectors are smaller, high density, lightweight connectors, claimed to exceed competing connectors in terms of quality and performance levels. The 2M Series is a versatile connector designed and tested to mil-spec standards, comparable to MIL-DTL-38999. In addition the 2M connector is intermateable with Glenair’s Mighty Mouse.

2M micro connectors are suitable for military and aerospace applications requiring smaller, faster and stronger connectors such as armoured vehicles, data acquisition equipment, aero planes, helicopters, avionic calculators, missiles and drones for which electrical performance and miniaturisation are essential.

Available in aluminum, the 2M connectors are nearly half the size and weight of standard military connectors, claims Amphenol. The connector features nine arrangements and three different plating (olive drab cadmium, black zinc nickel and electroless nickel). Amphenol Socapex will provide the most common configuration including plugs, jam nut and square flange receptacles, both with integrated backshells or also receptacles for soldering version on PCB and stand-off version. Accessories such as caps, shrink boots or tools are also available.

Amphenol Socapex is part of Amphenol Group. Amphenol Socapex provides and manufactures interconnection systems solutions for the military, security, aerospace and industrial markets. The products are designed for rugged situations involving extreme conditions of these demanding sectors.
