Despite the defence sagging statistics in some territories, contract activity across platforms, systems and component technologies are dynamic. A number of defence products require higher reliability, extended functionalities while reducing size and weight of the end equipment. Nicomatic connectors are especially designed to answer this market’s need.
For example, our CMM interconnect system is a 2mm pitch connector with proven high reliability under the most extreme environmental conditions of use, vibration & shock severity, high temperature (250°C for 1000 hours exceeding the 85°C per the MIL), humidity, salt spray, corrosion and high altitude (70,000 ft). This system has fulfilled the most rigorous requirements under MIL-DTL55302F qualification test routine and EIA test procedures.
CMM connector system has been developed for the aerospace, defense, instrumentation & control, and transportation markets, with applications that include IFES, HUDs, flight controls, FADEC units, radars, missiles, electro-optical sighting systems, satellites, mobile radios, power supplies, engine controls, and remote weapons systems.
This Board to Board, Board to Wire and Wire to Wire interconnect system benefits from the option of a mixed layout, giving the designer a choice of high frequency (up to 11 GHz), high power (up to 30 Amps), and low frequency (up to 5A) contact configurations.
Other products from Nicomatic such as DMM metal connectors, Microflex harnesses, Shielded or gold FFC, or more bespoke connectors are also very successful in emerging markets where innovation plays an important role.
