TE launches DBAS 9 connector for space and military

TE Connectivity (TE), a specialist in connectivity and sensors, is adding the DBAS 9 connector to its family of connectors.

The DBAS 9 connector is specifically designed to offer increased configuration options providing additional design flexibility in the harsh environments of military and space applications.

This push pull connector is built on time-tested technologies by combining the extreme reliability of the DBAS 7 connector with the flexibility of standard D38999 inserts. DBAS 9 connector also provides cost-effective solutions using AS39029 signal and power contacts.

“The DBAS 9 connector offers a solution for engineers looking for a connector that is easy to install and uninstall, while providing high performance that can withstand extreme shock, vibration and high temperatures up to 200°C,” said Aurélie Cordier, product manager for TE’s aerospace, defence and marine division. “The DBAS 9 connector is ideally employed in harsh applications, such as umbilical connectors for missiles and rockets where lanyard quick release or rack and panel mating is used.”

TE’s DBAS 9 connector is engineered for extremely harsh environments, featuring:

  • Visual and sensitive push-pull locking system for blind mating applications
  • Leading clip help prevent accidental unmating on demand
  • Easy locking/unlocking (in heavy duty lanyard configuration)
  • Scoop-proof
  • Wide range of arrangements configurations of D38999 inserts: high density, hybrid signal and power layout and high-speed
  • Rack and panel feature
  • Large range of backshells and accessories

The wide range of inserts and large range of shell types and accessories with multiple surface-finishing options makes integrated solutions for custom designs possible, such as integrated backshells, fibre optic and high-speed solutions. Finally, if requested DBAS-9 connectors can also be manufactured according to European Space Agency (ESA) procedures to improve traceability and quality insurance requested for critical space applications.
