Nano-circular Connectors Meet High Reliability Applications With Water Proof

As design miniaturization evolves, mobile instruments, military, surveillance,
and medical devices are being asked to go smaller and retain very high
reliability. Miniature circuits and instruments are often highly portable and
must fit into extremely tight spaces that require quick and easy cable
connections in very rugged environments. Higher speed digital signals must be
accommodated with additional pin count in reduced diameter cables. Omnetics
nano-connectors with pin spacing at one-thousands of an inch, reduce size and
weight by three times when compared to micro-circular connectors. The new
nano-circular connector series is designed with military quality elements and
tested to levels that assure high performance over a long life span. A wide
range of design formats are available at http://omnetics.com/products/circular/

Nano circular-connectors use a one-piece beryllium copper flex pin design,
plated with nickel/gold for robust service from -55 to + 125 degrees
centigrade. Most wiring and cable designs include 32 AWG Teflon(r) insulated wire
for handling up to 1 ampere. Omnetics' unique polarized-insulator bodies allow
both plastic and metal connector configurations. Styles include metal threaded
coupling shells, twist-lock shells, shielded breakaway connectors, over-molded
plastic bodies that snap lock together and a range of water proof designs.
Instrument handles and shells can be designed into a full custom housing
over-molded at Omnetics. The basic nano circular connector inserts are also

available in panel mount and wire attachment format and often are supplied
pre-wired from Omnetics.

Newer circuits using nano-circular connectors employ firewire(r) cable
connections with twisted pair signals for low voltage differential signal
processing. This allows higher speed digital transmission signals on smaller,
flexible cables. Extra ground lines can be fit into smaller cables to support
more dedicated lines for return-path signals in portable equipment. Woven
over-all shields or shields for each differential pair can be designed into the
cable system and tied to the connector shell as needed.

Nano-circular connectors and cables include surveillance cameras, breakaway
cables, military helmets and a range of medical devices like catheters, optical
scopes and surgical tools. Information is available at www.omnetics.com
