Bayonet locking circular connectors with PCB contacts are highly robust

04-06-2019 | Lane Electronics | Connectors, Switches & EMECH

Lane Electronics now offers the Weald Electronics LMH series of bayonet coupling circular connectors with PCB contacts to enable these robust connectors to be mounted directly to PCBs or flexi circuits

Created to meet the requirements of MIL-DTL-26482, the connectors are offered in two shell styles. One in a fixed/receptacle square flange version (02A), the other a fixed receptacle (jam nut) single hole mount version with an ‘O’ ring panel seal (07A).

The company provides these connectors with size #20 and #16 PCB contacts. These are sometimes called PCB tail contacts or spill contacts providing termination to PCBs or flex cable by a long tail offered in multiple lengths and diameters.

In its different forms, the series includes nine shell sizes and multiple styles with contact configurations from 2 to 61. The connector shells are constructed from aluminium alloy and, as standard, they provide high resistance to corrosion due to an olive drab chromate conversion over a Zinc Cobalt, RoHS-compliant plating finish. Other finishes are available on request including cadmium, black zinc nickel and electroless nickel.

As well as satisfying the demands of MIL-DTL-26482, the series connectors are constructed in accordance with IECQ-CECC spec BS/CECC 75201-003.
