Nicomatic launches new DBMM series micro connectors and showcases wide defence portfolio at DSEI
Nicomatic, the leading manufacturer of high performance interconnect systems, is showcasing its extensive portfolio of modular, highly-configurable and custom interconnects on Stand H2-872 at DSEI 2021. Specialising in micro connectors for civil and military aerospace applications, Nicomatic has an impressive track record of innovation and customer problem-solving spanning over 40 years, resulting in its products being selected for multiple aerospace and military applications worldwide.
Nicomatic has invested substantially in R & D over the past two years, typically reinvesting over 15% of total revenue into new product development. Launching at DSEI 2021 is the new DBMM Series - Nicomatic’s DMM 2mm connectors now with fully integrated backshells. DBMM connectors save space, measuring only 15mm front to back, are easy to handle and offer excellent EMI protection. Qualified to MIL-DTL-83513, two models are available: DBMM220 (4 to 32 contacts) and DBMM320 (6 to 48 contacts). They suit high power and high frequency applications such as missile systems, military aircraft and radar systems.
Nicomatic will be also be showcasing its aero modular EN4165 Optimus connector, a versatile low-profile, user-configurable rectangular I/O connector series offering high density and space-saving compared to circular connectors. Designers can specify the layout they require, including signal and power contacts. Able to withstand 500 mating and de-mating cycles, high shock and vibration and extreme temperatures, Optimus interconnects provide excellent protection against EMI and are waterproof. Fully interchangeable with existing EN4165 solutions, Optimus connectors are a space-saving and stackable solution designed for equipment interface connection to a harness or in rack & panel installations.
Easily customizable thanks to Nicomatic’s modular manufacturing capabilities, the company’s miniature, hi-rel connectors deliver excellent performance and can be stacked closely together to minimize PCB space. Also showing at DSEI are the 1mm pitch nano density AMM Series, rated for 15G vibration, 100G shock and operating temperatures between -65degC to 200degC, plus the 1.27mm pitch EMM Series, which meets the performance requirements of MIL 83513 and is 20% smaller than standard Micro D connectors. Featuring integrated 90° back protection and reversed contacts, EMM connectors suit board-to-board and board-to-wire configurations in any pin selection from 4 to 60 signal contacts.
Nicomatic will also demonstrate its capabilities in cabling solutions, including the Microflex Hi-Rel Flexible Harness for high vibration environments.
