The Nemesis Series and MKJ Series breakaway connectors use a simple push/pull mating mechanism to engage and disengage the connector systems. The coupling mechanism uses a canted spring design, which allows for a quick disconnect and ratings of more than 5000 cycles.
The breakaway mechanism enables a reliable connection without the danger of tearing the connector off the equipment or out of walls. These connectors suite portable medical imaging and diagnostic equipment. They also feature a spring probe pin/pad contact system that uses an internal clip mechanism to stay connected with the contact itself, helping to reduce electrical contact resistance.
The spring probe system allows the connector receptacle to house individual touch pad contact areas for better electrical engagement. Further, the system cleans easily in the field, where dirt, moisture, mud, sand, and other contaminants may be present.
The Nemesis Series sealed, lightweight, miniature connectors resist salt spray for more than 500 hrs, measure less than 15 mm in diameter, and have an anti-reflecting coat. Maximum current rating for the Nemesis WT connectors is 3 A and voltage rating is 200 Vac RMS at sea level. Minimum insulation resistance is 5000 MΩ, and maximum contact resistance is 8 mΩ. Operating temperature ranges from -40° C to +100° C. Life span is to 2500 cycles.
The MKJ Series miniature, circular connectors are available with a variety of mounting options for crimp and PC board contacts, including in-line, jam nut, front mount, square flange mount and flange mount. The connectors are up to 71% lighter and 52% smaller than comparable devices, and feature size 23 pin-and-socket contacts that have the equivalent electrical performance of size 22 contacts. Dielectric withstanding voltage at sea level is 500 Vac RMS, 60 Hz. Operating temperature ranges from -55° C to +150° C.
