Metal-shelled Bi-lobe connector has ultra-low profileOmnetics is launching a single-row version of its Nano-Miniature Bi-lobe 0.635mm pitch connector family, designed to deliver ultra-reliable signal contact direct from the PCB into the connector. With a profile only 2.92mm high, these connectors incorporate Omnetics' proven Nano Flex Pin contact and are claimed to be the lowest profile metal-shelled connector available on the market.

Nano connectors are defined by Mil-Std-32139. Gary Evans, European Sales Manager, comments: "Based on proven Nano Flex Pin contact technology, Omnetics' Bi-lobe range is synonymous - in the USA - with Nano connectors." Bi-lobe connectors are preferred for their resistance to extreme conditions of shock and vibration, while also benefiting from a miniature footprint. Applications include military, space, medical, oil and gas equipment.

Single-row Bi-lobe connectors, available in 9- to 51-way versions, are housed in a robust metal shell and feature a metal jackscrew for locking and un-mating. They are also polarised to prevent mis-mating. They withstand a shock of 100g in each axis and vibration exposure in accordance with Mil-Std-32139. Wire-to-wire and surface-mount versions are available.
