Glenair MIL-DTL-83513 type Micro-D hermetic connectors are ideal for high-pressure/low-leakage applications where size, weight and vibration resistance are a critical concern. Sophisticated electronics enclosures, vacuum chambers and cryogenic equipment all benefit from the airtight seal and moisture resistant plating found on Glenair hermetic Micro-D connectors. Solder mount, weld mount and rear panel O-ring shell styles are available to meet a variety of design requirements.
Kovar® – an iron nickel alloy – is used in both the shells and contacts, and provides a chemical bond with the glass insulator for maximum hermeticity. Shells are then plated with nickel after the glass insulator is fired to enhance corrosion resistance. Contacts are plated with gold to ensure superior electrical conductivity. Connectors are offered with a minimum of 9 sockets, up to a maximum of 100 sockets – in two, three and four row solder cup and pigtail configurations. Fluorosilicone rubber interfacial seals and O-rings ensure positive sealing with plug connectors and panels. Gold plated Kovar® socket contacts boast superior vibration resistance when used in conjunction with Glenair's innovative TwistPin contact system in the plug.
Because Glenair makes all its hermetic connectors in-house, including the machining of shells, molding of interfacial seals and firing of hermetic components, we can offer you outstanding availability on stock products and fast turnaround on special orders.
