D-Sub connector designed for use in next-generation harsh environments
Lane Electronics, a leading franchised distributor for many of the industry’s major electrical and electronic connector manufacturers, is pleased to announce the availability of the Positronic MACH-D connector. The MACH-D family of products, designed for use in next-generation electronic equipment for harsh environments, is the newest member of the industry-leading D-Sub connector lineup from Positronic. All MACH-D products boast machined aluminum or stainless-steel shells for the ultimate in durability, precision, planarity and electromagnetic compatibility.
Standard MIL-DTL-24308-style D-Subminiature connectors are increasingly popular in harsh environment applications such as defense electronics, commercial aircraft, medical devices, deep space and more. Solid machined metal shells are the primary differentiator between MACH-D products and their M24308 cousins, which are only available in stamped shells. MACH-D connectors are fully intermateable with standard M24308-type D-Subs and in many cases outperform the minimum requirements as outlined in MIL-DTL-24308. Additionally, MACH-Ds are performance-comparable and mechanically compatible with Glenair’s Series 28 HiPer-D® connectors
The Positronic MACH-D connectors are available in standard and high-density signal contact arrangements as well as hybrid versions, which combine power and signal in a single connector body and custom options are available on request. MACH-D connectors feature unique accessory options including keyed jackscrews, rear silicone grommets, interfacial seals, EMI grounding strips, and a 360-degree banding feature which is useful when space limitations preclude the use of a full-size backshell.
Lane Electronics is a major source for all key connector types including circular, filtered, RF, coaxial, sub – miniature, backshells and adaptors, D connectors, aerospace, test & measurement, IDC, PCB connectors, edge connectors and connectors for rack and panel applications.
With a multi-million-pound connector and piece-part stockholding and next-day delivery, Lane Electronics are the preferred source across many industry sectors including defence, avionics, motorsport, marine, communications, medical, test and measurement, general industrial solutions and geophysical.
