AirBorn's new M-Series .050 inch Sealed Connectors are rated to 30 psi and meet the performance standards of MIL-DTL-83513. They target I/O applications in which protection against extreme temperature swings, moisture and humidity is required. The M-Series features two levels of sealing. The connectors are sealed at the flange to panel with a fluorosilicone EMI gasket. In addition, a seal through the interface made of EPDM provides flexibility superior to the standard epoxy-based seals that can become brittle and deteriorate from thermal cycling. The sealed connectors are available in sizes 9 to 37 contacts, are custom-built to order, supplied pre-wired and can be ordered with factory- or customer-defined wire/cable.
