In order to guarantee the integrity of datacommunications in factory floor applications, many machine builders and systems integrators have been obliged to over-specify their connectors and use military- or aerospace-spec components. Now, RS Components has a new range of micro-miniature industrial connectors from Norcomp that offer a cost-effective and highly capable alternative.
The Norcomp 380, 381, 382 and 960 series of Micro-D connectors and cable assemblies are designed for commercial markets such as robotics and instrumentation, and other applications where space is at a premium yet also require a robust shielded I/O connector system.
Micro-D connectors are available in industry-standard 9-, 15- and 25-way sizes and with vertical and right angle board-mount and cable-mount options. Offering a contact spacing of just 1.27mm, the connectors are less than one-third the size of standard D-sub connectors, yet deliver a metal-to-metal interface that provides robust mechanical connection and shield effectiveness.
Able to mate with most commercial competitor products, other features of the series include a 1A contact rating and an operating temperature range of -55 to +85°C.
The Norcomp range of industrial Micro-D connectors is shipping now from RS.
