An extra retention spring allows the connectors to release (break away) at a pre-determined force.
The break away configuration of these nano connectors enables them to withstand high shock and vibrations while maintaining their electrical integrity, making them suitable for the most demanding applications where size and ruggedness are valued.
Omnetics nano connectors are also available with added waterproof sealing up to IP-68 for the mated pair, and hermetically sealed panel mounts are also possible using a proprietary ceramic seal.
These high density multi-position nano connectors are available in sizes from 2-28 ways with four sizes as standard, and have contacts arranged on a .025” (.64 mm) pitch.
The four standard sizes are 6, 11, 16 & 28 pins and the small OD of the plug offers space saving advantages for the design engineer.
The OD of the 6way is 6.2mm, the 11way is 6.7mm, the 16way is 8.2mm and the 28way is 9mm.
Utilising a military quality contact system, these nano connectors are well suited for a range of applications where size, weight and overall reliability are crucial.
