High Power Connectors

High power connectors are available in a number of series, including the HBB series, transformer series, M40/M58 series, M12 series, and M23 series, as well as the L series featuring rack and panel connectors that come with coax and high current contacts (up to 200 Amps).

  • Rugged, single and multi-way formats
  • Power up to 700 Amps
  • Durable and suitable for harsh environmental conditions
  • High number of mating cycles
  • Long service life with reliable transmission of power
Spring Probe :

Also referred to as pogo pins, these electrical component connectors are utilised for temporary electrical connections.

  • Low profile, high compliance ratio
  • Z-axis compliance
  • Blind mate engagement
  • Low, stable resistance with a long cycle life
  • Customisable spring probe tips with multiple points of contact
  • Reliable and durable
Backplane :

This serves as a central hub for connecting various hardware components within a system.

  • Provides a broad portfolio including SOSA-aligned optical, COTS plus hard metric, VITA standard and high-speed twinax interconnects.
  • Addresses the requirements of mission-critical applications within commercial aerospace, space and defence market segments
  • Contributes to the flexibility and efficiency of electronic systems.
Electromagnetic Interference/Electromagnetic Pulse Filter (EMI/EMP)

These filters are designed to protect electrical equipment from disruptive electromagnetic interferences and pulses.

  • Intermateable and interchangeable with standard non-filter connectors
  • C, L and Pi style EMI filters
  • Provides TVS protection that meets the requirements of TCA D160 section 22 up to level 5
Circular Connectors:

These connectors support a broad range of contact voltages and currents and are designed to deliver data reliably.

  • Available in metal and plastic shells
  • Utilises a push-and-pull latching mechanism
  • Comprises crimps and solder terminations
  • Rugged mechanical performance
  • Offered in a variety of colour coding options
PCB Connectors :

Smiths Interconnect’s PCB power connectors are highly reliable and suitable for harsh environments.

  • Low, medium and high-density connectors with a long life cycle
