In addition to easy mating to spring-loaded, compliant contacts, the Rapid Mate connector provides EMI filtering with hot shoe style mating, a joining method that provides rapid connection with low mating force, allowing for some misalignment during mating. As a result, these connectors provide a positive mating force to ensure a reliable connection. Applications include military and commercial communications systems, thermal and ambient-light imaging cameras, docking stations, and scanners. Additionally, the EMI filter can be built to meet custom requirements. Spectrum Advanced Specialty Products, Fairview, PA. (814) 474-4300.
