Circular connector offers more configuration options

Extending the DEUTSCH DBAS family, TE Connectivity has introduced the DBAS 9 circular connector that offers more configuration options in harsh military and space applications. The circular push-pull connector combines the reliability of the DBAS 7 connector with the flexibility of standard D38999 inserts, said the company.

Circular connector offers more configuration optionsDesigned for extremely harsh environment applications such as umbilical connectors for missiles and rockets, the DBAS 9 circular connector can withstand extreme shock and vibration and temperatures up to 200°C. It offers up to 500 mating/unmating cycles with variants available for up to 1500 cycles. They also can be used in rack-and-panel equipment.

Delivering greater design flexibility, the connector offers a variety of D38999 insert arrangement configurations (high density, hybrid signal and power layout, and high speed) and a wide range of backshells and accessories. The variety of inserts, shell types, and accessories with multiple surface-finishing options enables integrated solutions for custom designs, such as integrated backshells, fiber optic, and high-speed solutions, said TE.

The connectors are compliant with specifications for SAE/AS81703 series III, UTE  93422 model HE 311, and MIL-DTL-38999. Other features include visual and sensitive push-pull locking system for blind-mating applications, a leading clip to prevent accidental unmating, and easy locking/unlocking in the heavy-duty lanyard configuration.

If requested DBAS-9 connectors can be manufactured according to European Space Agency (ESA) procedures to improve traceability and quality insurance requested for critical space applications, said TE.
