Filtered connectors survive 300G mechanical shock and 18°C/sec thermal shock
Cooper Interconnect introduced the G3 Series of filtered connectors. According to the company, extensive testing of these MIL-DTL-38999 Series III compliant products has confirmed no measurable change in filtering performance after exposure to 300G shock, 60G sine vibration and 18°C per second thermal shock. These connectors are suitable for reducing EMI/RFI in a wide range of harsh-environment applications including avionics, communications, embedded computing, SIGINT and ISR. Compliance to the environmental requirements for MIL-DTL-38999 filtered connectors, with no deratings, is facilitated by a rugged design that isolates the critical filtering components from mechanical and thermal stresses. This design also facilitates higher-density filtered connectors and modularizes internal components. The G3-Series is available in an array of capacitive/inductive configurations and component values to tailor attenuation versus frequency characteristics to the exact application requirements. Additional features include: low insertion losses; rugged coupling designs survive 500 harsh-environment engagement cycles; finish options rated for 500 hours salt spray exposure; and -55°C to 125°C operating temperatures.
