New interconnect system saves space and weight in demanding hi-rel applications

Nicomatic has released its 1mm pitch AMM Series in five standard layouts for delivery on only a few days lead time. The series saves both space and weight in the most demanding aerospace and other hi-rel applications, including medical, defence and security and harsh-environment industrial.

The five standard layouts are 6, 10, 20, 34 and 50 contact interconnects with two rows. Providing an integrated guidance pin for ease of stacking, this series of connectors are provided for thru-mount on PCBs or straight surface PCB mounting (AMM A22 Series, male and female versions) and pre-wired (AMM HA22 Series, female).

The series is particularly created to meet the demands of hostile environments and is rated for vibration of 15G and shock of 100G. The temperature range is -65C to +200C. Electrical specifications are up to 4.8A @ 25C (PCB to cable, 20 pins) and up to 2.5A @ 25C (PCB to PCB, 20 pins), withstanding voltage at sea level 600V RMS. Contact resistance is <10mOhm, and these robust connectors will withstand up to 1000 mechanical operations. The connector housing is manufactured in LCP glass fibre composite; male contacts are copper alloy, female contacts are copper-zinc alloy, slotted, with four contact points. Hardware is constructed of stainless steel.

Easy customisation of the series is possible due to the company’s renowned modular manufacturing capabilities: further pin numbers and configurations, with and without mounting ears and various harness specifications are all available on request. The AMM Series interconnects are supplied on tape and reel packaging for automated assembly.
