Nemesis SC connector

ITT Interconnect Solutions has expanded its family of sealed, miniature, lightweight connectors for modern and "future soldier" applications with a "Super Clean" version. Also suitable for medical use, the Nemesis SC connectors are sealed but cleanable, allowing them to operate in all conditions, including harsh military and medical environments.

"The miniature, lightweight Nemesis SC connectors feature a patented pull back barrel system that facilitates cleaning and allows the user to return the connector to full operational functionality in seconds," said Keith Teichmann, director of marketing for ITT Interconnect Solutions. "These connectors also feature our innovative Pogo Pin/Pad and Breakaway technologies, increasing the number of mating cycles to more than 10,000."

Nemesis SC MIL-DTL-38999-style connectors are blind-mateable and can be cleaned more than 2,500 times. The Nemesis SC connectors are available with 7, 14 or 19 pins, feature five locking positions and are colour-coded for simple identification. Contacts are rated at 3A. While the first products are based on the key elements of the MIL-DTL-38999 specification, a full range of circular and rectangular styles are also in development.

The Nemesis SC connectors are sealed to IP67 standards in the unmated state and are resistant to salt spray for more than 500 hours. The connectors weigh less than 25g (which is critical for on-soldier applications), measure less than 15mm in diameter and have an anti-reflecting coat. The RoHS-compliant connectors also exhibit superior EMC properties.

The Nemesis SC connectors will be available in Q2 10.
