The Smiths Interconnect Transformer Series offers a customer configurable architecture, with just a few piece parts to create several types of connectors as a platform solution. No special tools are needed except crimping tools, resulting in a reduced stock and kitting/logistic management. The series offers a high reliability due to the Tortac® contact and provides up to 500 mating cycles and high current rating up to 300A/500A.
High impedance D-Sub connectors are designed to ground the outer shield of a twinax or quadrax contact directly to the shell of the connector. A multi-finger ground spring fixed around the shell provides a multi-point contact engagement that affords superior EMI shielding. The end result is an extremely low contact resistance when measured from the contact outer body to the connector flange, ensuring minimal RF noise and high durability of over 500 mating cycles.
Designed to secure signal transmissions in the sensitive area located between coaches of all types of rail vehicles, from high speed trains to metros and trams.
The F series is equipped with modular inserts offering a combination of fibre optics, high speed Ethernet twinax or quadrax, power and standard hyperboloid signal contacts. The connector's ruggedized aluminium shell guarantees an excellent resistance to the high levels of shocks and vibrations on-board rail vehicles. It also meets the requirements of harsh environments in terms of corrosion resistance (500 hours minimum) and sealing (IP66 according to CEI60529).
The N Series of mini modular, high density connectors offers a variety of combinations in a single connector frame. It employs a do-it-yourself system based on the building block principle, which allows users to select the connector design that meets their specific requirements through off-the-shelf components.
SnapTac® Seriess is a lightweight, robust, quick release miniature connector, featuring IP67 sealing and EMI shielding. The series is available in both circular (7, 13, 19 ways) and rectangular (12, 21, 30 ways) styles. They are equipped with Hyperspring contacts,
REP series is easy to use for quick mating. The REP panel and cable connectors are a highly cost-effective interconnect system, which solves the constant need for simple and reliable connector solutions in rail applications. A full plastic solution offered in either wire attachment or PCB mounting options to provide rapid assembly installation without requiring additional mounting hardware. Cable receptacle connectors are available to mate with the cable plug connectors for cable-to- cable solutions when needed. The series is qualified to French and European rail standards. The connectors are available as one overmolded plastic part to save assembly time.
B Series incorporates the highly reliability Hypertac® hyperboloid contact which provides optimum performance in harsh conditions such as extreme mechanical shock and high mating cycles.
Fibre Channel D-Sub connectors offer high Data rate 6.25 Gbps, high shock and data resistance and high density quadrax. The main function associated with high impedance D-Sub connectors is to ground the outer shield of a quadrax contact directly to the shell of the connector.
CEA data transfer connectors for industrial applications. 1.5mm nominal pin DIA contact size; 3, 5 and 9 contact positions; Right angle through board solder, Straight through board solder, Solder cup and Crimp termination styles.
Complete line of high powered EMI filtered D-Sub connectors including the single row size #8 power contacts (3W3, 3WK3, etc.). With the addition of Smiths Interconnect's in-house production of ceramic planar capacitors, we can easily achieve up to 47 nF per line on this series.
Fltered rack and panel connectors include ARINC 404, ARINC 600 and MIL-DTL-83527 shell styles. EMI filtering at box interface level offers maximum system protection.
The modular design of the H Series allows custom configurations from standard off-the-shelf components without the cost and lead-time of custom tooling. The H Series offer a variety of designs to meet specific customer needs for extreme high density signal, power, and coaxial interconnect solutions.
The ARINC 600 series offer high speed copper integrated into industry standard ARINC 600 platform, high density and high data throughput.
The MIL-DTL-83527 Rack and Panel style connectors offer high density, high data throughput and robustness. These connectors meet or exceed the applicable requirements of the military specification and come in a wide variety of insert arrangements and shell sizes.
Heavy duty, modular, rectangular HyperMod Series is available with a variety of contacts, special shells for harsh environments and special high creepage/clearance modules. The series conforms to DIN 43652 standards and is NF F61-030 railways approved.
HDC is a standard modular product widely used in the Railway market. Several solid competitors manufacture similar solutions and Smiths Interconnect is therefore operating in a highly competitive environment.
MDCX, multipin coax connectors, offer low VSWR of 1.25:1 (typ) up to 10 GHz (max mated pair), maximum overall diameter of 0.125" fitted into low-profile micro-D housing, with constant 50 Ohm airline impedance. MDCX coaxial contacts are compact in size allowing multiple high density connections in a Micro-D style shell for applications where space and weight savings are important. No cumbersome spring mounts are required. These connectors are also available with locking post mechanisms or blindmate hardware attachment.
Spring loaded High Frequency Micro-D Coax Connectors (MDHC) offer low VSWR up to 40 GHz (typ). These connectors have a constant 50 ohm airline impedance interface and are 30% smaller than our SCX coaxial connectors.
MIL-DTL-24308 D-Subminiature connectors are designed to meet or exceed all applicable requirements of the military specification.
Integrated EMI filter into MIL-STD platform for robust EMI equipment protection in a space saving design.
