Amphenol Aerospace Enhances Rugged 2M Series Connector for Military/Industrial Applications

Amphenol Aerospace has enhanced its 2M Series connectors for interconnect applications that require high performance.

These upgraded micro-miniature connectors are 71% lighter, 52% smaller, and have 60% more contact density than other connectors in their class.

Designed and tested to mil-spec standards and comparable to MIL-DTL-38999 connectors, the 2M Series connectors are intermateable and intermountable with existing micro-miniature aerospace/defense connectors. These lightweight, high-density connectors maximize SWaP (size, weight, and power) in a variety of high-reliability, harsh environments.

Amphenol’s versatile 2M Series features 40 insert patterns including mix contact arrangement, multiple termination styles, high speed, filter, EMI/ESD, and hermetic solutions. Application-specific customized solutions are also available.

The enhanced connectors feature four coupling styles.  Each of the styles combines more than 40 years of Amphenol design and expertise, offering superior anti-decoupling on every connector as well as withstanding up to 44 g’s of random vibration and 300 g’s of shock on 2M801 and 2M805 Series.

The fast-mating 2M801 Dual-Start ACME thread connector features an innovative Dualok plug that exceeds MIL-DTL-38999 vibration levels and offers the highest coupling torque available in the micro-miniature connector market. The 2M803 features a ¼-turn bayonet coupling for quick mating in general avionics and weaponry applications.

For breakaway applications, like soldier-worn equipment, the 2M804’s push-pull coupling offers a quick disconnect. The tri-start ACME thread-style 2M805 uses an anti-decoupling ratchet for exceptionally secure mating.

The rugged, micro-miniature 2M Series connectors are available in aluminum and stainless steel with various corrosion-resistant platings, including stainless steel/passivated, non-conductive aluminum/black anodized and aluminum/electroless nickel, and aluminum/zinc-nickel with black chromate or olive drab. The 2M Series also offers Durmalon aluminum/nickel-PTFE plating, the only mil-qualified RoHS-compliant plating in the industry.

The full line of complementary accessories for Amphenol’s 2M Series includes protection caps and strain relief, EMI and environmental backshells, flange gaskets, hex nuts, O-rings, and heat shrink boots as well as value-added braided and overmolded cable assemblies.
