Amphenol is a world leader in the design, manufacture and supply of high-performance interconnect systems for harsh environment military applications including vibration, pressure, humidity, nuclear radiation and severe temperature changes. We have unparalleled product breadth ranging from military specification connectors, customized high-speed board level interconnects, flexible to rigid printed circuit boards, backplane systems and integrated assemblies. Our solutions span most military end markets including avionics, communications, engines, ground vehicles and tanks, homeland security, naval, ordnance and missile systems, radar systems, rotorcraft, satellite and space programs and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV).
Multiple options for alternate-to-cadmium platings, including Durmalon, Black Zinc Nickel, and the new AP-93 1000-hour salt spray approved plating. Amphenol uses the RoHS requirements and the latest revisions to the MIL-DTL-38999 specification to develop these platings.
AP-93 is a conductive REACH/RoHS compliant finish that outperforms Cadmium. AP-93 exceeds Olive-Drab Cadmium plating by meeting 1000 hours of dynamic salt spray, 500 mating cycles, and meets the millivolt drop shell-to-shell conductivity of nickel (Class F). AP-93 meets a 200° C temperature rating, is compatible with other platings, and is available on all D38999-style Series III connectors.
Backshell as per VG95319 as adapter with strain reliever shells for D38999 series 3. This forms a connection to a plug or a socket. This serves to seal or for continuing shielding. The backshells are available in various versions, straight or bent as tape adapters, individual cone adapters or mold adapters.
Amphenol RF offers a variety of board-to-board solutions engineered to maximize radial and axial float, eliminating the need for cables between the boards and simplifying designs to eliminate assembly errors.
Amphenol Borisch Technologies has a long history of manufacturing complex cable and wire harnesses for a broad range of harsh environment defense and aerospace applications. Our capabilities include over-molding, custom backshells, unique cable transitions, braiding for EMI/RFI and mechanical abrasion production, rapid prototyping, live-layup, test, X-ray, and custom fixtures.
Cable Separators are used to help separate cable harnesses from one another, aiding in organizing cable routing throughout the aircraft. Available in either Nylon or PEEK, they maintain clearance between two parallel or crossing cable harnesses preventing wire abrasion. Nine different versions are available and they are qualified to Airbus standard ABS1144.
Cable Supports are made to affix on an aircraft’s airframe, helping to secure and manage cable harnesses as they run throughout the aircraft body. They are offered in nylon and are designed for use in airframe, fuel tank, and engine applications. Available in various standard configurations and sizes, Amphenol Pcd also offers customized products to help meet specific customer requirements.
Amphenol Air LB France's CC1339 Light clamps provide routing, support, and fixing for cable harnesses of various diameters (5 to 48 mm). Robust and flexible, they absorb shocks, vibrations and offer unequaled protection of bundles against pinching, crushing, or mechanical wear. Derived from legacy ABS1339 standard clamps, they offer up to 18% more weight savings.
Improved version of the CC5516 standard series, these Amphenol Air LB France's lightweight versions offer additional weight saving (up to 24% more!). Designed to keep the cable harnesses or hydraulic pipes securely maintained on a structure, they are easy-to-install, robust, flexible, and provide safety over time vs. metallic clamps. Stacking mount possible.
CC5516 series is a new line of lightweight Cable Clamps, in composite and silicone, derived from the legacy NSA5516 metallic clamps. They are designed to keep cable harnesses or hydraulic pipes securely maintained on a structure. They are closed and fixed on the structure by screw (not supplied), in one simple operation.
Lightweight alternative to metallic cable clamps, Amphenol Air LB France's CC5516 series is a line of composite and silicone clamps offering significant weight saving and safety over time. Designed to keep the cable harnesses or hydraulic pipes securely maintained on a structure, they are easy to install, robust and flexible.
State-of-the-art machine with abilities to machine, coat, inspect, and assemble mechanical solutions for our internal and external customers. Our capabilities include Six 4-Axis Mazak machines, 5-Axis Mazak Integrex, water-jet, and press brake, CMM, vacuum fixturing for thin-walled heat-sinks.
Amphenol RF attenuators are designed to offer flat attenuation over the designated frequency range and feature a microwave grade resistor that consistently reduces power. Hex flats on the body allow this attenuator to be easily torqued to the mating connector.
Amphenol RF terminators are available in many common series and genders including; 1.0/2.3, APC-3.5, APC-5.5, BNC, F-type, HD-BNC, N-Type, QMA, and SMA. Amphenol RF terminators reliably prevent RF signals from being reflected along the transmission line to reduce interference.
The size 8, 10, and 12 concentric twinax contacts were developed for applications that require high-performance interconnect characteristics in multi-pin connectors. Ideal for this application need is the high-performance D38999 Series III connector with its fully scoop-proof feature of recessed pins. The concentric Twinax contact is crimp terminable to twisted shielded cable.
CRN Bracket is custom-made to hold the “Current Return Network” in place inside a composite aircraft. Very easy to install with a bolt, the CRN system is fixed in place by hand with an integrated snap system on the bracket. The bracket is made of PEEK material and silicone is over-molded onto the bracket.
D38999 Connectors with Coaxial, Concentric Twinax, and Triax Contacts
MIL-DTL-38999 connectors are ideally suited for shielded contacts for high-performance, high-speed interconnection applications. Insert arrangements can incorporate: coax (sizes 8, 12, and 16); twinax (sizes 8 and 12); and triax contacts (sizes 8, 10, and 12).
Used to facilitate the launching of controlled impedance signals to printed circuit boards. Two strategically spaced inner contacts form two 100 or 150 Ohm matched impedance differential pairs. Requires modification of MIL-DTL-38999 connector to accommodate keyed contacts. Available in size 8 crimp termination style. Also available in size 8 with PC tails.
