RS Components adds robust and high-specification industrial micro-miniature connectors

Micro-D connector series from Norcomp offers real alternative to military-spec connectors in industrial applications

OXFORD, UK, 18 July, 2017 – RS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE:ECM), the global distributor for engineers, has announced availability of a new range of micro-miniature industrial connectors manufactured by Norcomp, (http://uk.rs-online.com/web/b/norcomp/) which are a cost-effective and highly capable alternative to the use of military- and aerospace-rated micro-D connectors.

The 380/381/382/960 series of Micro-D connectors and cable assemblies has been designed for commercial markets including robotics, telecommunications and instrumentation equipment, and other applications where space is at a premium yet which also require a robust shielded I/O connector system.

The Norcomp Micro-D series is available in three industry-standard sizes – 9, 15 and 25-way – as well as in vertical and right angle board-mount and cable-mount options. Offering a contact spacing of just 1.27mm (0.050-inch), the connectors are less than a third the size of standard D-sub connector types, yet deliver a metal-to-metal interface that provides robust mechanical connection and shield effectiveness.

Able to mate with most commercial competitor products, other features of the series include a 1A contact rating and an operating temperature range of –55C to +85°C.

The Norcomp range of industrial Micro-D connectors is shipping now from RS in the EMEA and Asia Pacific regions.
