Groomed for portable medical equipment, the Nemesis Series and MKJ Series breakaway connectors incorporate a simple push/pull mating mechanism to engage and disengage the connector systems. The coupling mechanism utilizes a canted spring design that allows for a quick disconnect and ratings of more than 5000 cycles. The components also feature a spring probe pin/pad contact system. The contact design utilizes an internal clip mechanism that stays in constant contact with the contact itself, helping to reduce electrical contact resistance. Additionally, the spring probe contact system accommodates misalignment issues. Nemesis Series connectors are resistant to salt spray for more than 500 hours, measure less than 15 mm in diameter, and have an anti-reflecting coat. Maximum current rating is 3A and voltage rating is 200 Vac RMS at sea level. Minimum insulation resistance is 5,000 M? and maximum contact resistance is 8 m?. Operating temperature ranges from -40°C to +100°C and lifespan is up to 2,500 cycles. The MKJ Series miniature, circular connectors are available with a variety of mounting options for both crimp and PC board contacts including in-line, jam nut, front mount, square-flange mount, and flange mount. The connectors feature size 23 pin-and-socket contacts that have the equivalent electrical performance of size 22 contacts. Dielectric withstanding voltage at sea level is 500 Vac RMS at 60 Hz. Operating temperature ranges from -55°C to +150°C. Typical pricing for the Nemesis breakaway connectors is approximately $90 per mated pair for 1,000 sets. Breakaway connectors will be available in the second quarter. ITT INDUSTRIES, CANNON, Santa Ana, CA. (714) 557-4700.
