Miniature 1mm Connectors Developed for Harsh Environments

Published: 08 Jul 2019

AMM 1mm Micro ConnectorsNicomatic, a manufacturer of high-performance interconnect solutions, has launched the new AMM series of 1.00mm pitch connectors for demanding space-constrained applications in harsh environments, such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), drones and other aerospace and robotics applications. The AMM series includes five standard layouts with 6, 10, 20, 34, or 50 contacts distributed over two rows.

Lightweight and secure, the new AMM series connectors have ingenious features such as the integrated guidance pin for stacking. Capable of carrying up to 4.8A (PCB to cable, 20 pins at 25°C) or 2.5A (PCB to PCB, 20 pins at 25°C), the miniature connectors can withstand vibrations of 15G and shock of 100G; devices can handle up to 1000 mating cycles and can operate between -65 and 200°C.

Alexis de Lassat, product manager at Nicomatic, commented: “The optimization of weight, space and simplicity is in our DNA at Nicomatic, so although we have standard parts available for off-the-shelf delivery, because of the customization options we offer, AMM series connectors can be supplied with exactly the number of pins the application requires. Our ordering process is simple, intuitive and streamlined. For applications where miniaturisation is paramount, versions are available without the mounting ears. For maximum reliability and ease of use, AMM connectors are sold pre-cabled.”

Devices are available in surface mount and through-hole versions with a number of fixing options. 2D and 3D CAD drawings are available at Nicomatic’s website.
