ITT Interconnect Solutions is launching the Micro-K range of high-reliability, rugged, lightweight micro-miniature circular connectors that feature the proven twist pin micro-miniature contact technology. With factory installed contact termination for up to 24 AWG, Micro-K connectors can be configured to meet customer needs in lightweight, compact designs.
Meeting the performance requirements of Mil-C-83513, Micro-K connectors are available in a range of circular pin layouts with 1.27mm contact spacing. The MIK thermoplastic shell has up to 55 contacts and the MIKM metal shell up to 85 contacts. A quick-release metal shell version, the MIKQ, has 37 contacts and all body shells have five keyway positions for polarisation when multiple connectors are used on one unit. RFI shielding is a further option.
Micro-K series devices feature a 3A contact rating and are designed for 500 mating cycles. The connectors are suitable for applications in avionics, medical equipment, field radios and military gun sights.
