Omnetics Connector Corporation (Minneapolis, MN) announced its latching Micro-D connector can be mated or un-mated without the need for a screwdriver or hand tools. Built to meet or exceed the testing specified in MIL-DTL-83513 specifications, the small, lightweight, high strength latching Micro-D connectors have passed extensive shock and vibration testing, and are appropriate for use in military, aerospace, oil and gas exploration, and robotics applications. The new push-and-latch design incorporates finger grips to assist field operation, and can be used by those wearing bulky gloves or no gloves at all. The squeeze-latch system provides:
- Quick cable connections to mating connectors and panel equipment.
- Rapid connection and release to provide signal integrity for portable and ruggedized electronics applications.
- A one-piece flex pin design for greater shock and vibration resistance.
