Connector-assembly specialist PEI-Genesis has expanded its portfolio of ITT Interconnect Solutions products to include the MDM series of microminiature D-type connectors and is now carrying large stocks ready for assembly within 48 hours.
Featuring a 1.27mm pitch between contacts, the MDM connectors offer a higher contact density than traditional rectangular connectors. They are ideal for harsh-environment applications where space is restricted, particularly in military, aviation and industrial systems.
The gold-plated copper-alloy contacts have a high current rating of 3A, while the use of twist-pin contact technology ensures high reliability even when the connectors are subjected to extreme levels of vibration or rapid changes of temperature. Shells are made from aluminium and plated in either RoHS-compliant electroless nickel or yellow chromate over cadmium.
PEI-Genesis also stocks ITT’s huge range of RoHS-compliant
D-subminiature connectors, which are available with the same 48-hour assembly service in a vast array of different types to suit almost any requirement. They can be specified in standard configurations ranging from nine to 104 ways or with a combination of power and signal contacts to meet customers’ specific requirements.
Manufactured to the highest quality standards to ensure optimum performance and reliability, the connectors are available with turned or stamped-and-formed contacts in a wide variety of termination styles, such as crimped, solder bucket, insulation displacement, wire-wrap and press-fit.
In addition to general-purpose commercial products, the ITT D-subminiature range includes filtered versions for applications requiring EMI/RFI protection, corrosion-resistant stainless-steel versions designed to withstand harsh environments, and high-spec hermetically sealed MIL-DTL-24308 connectors for use in military and aerospace systems.
PEI-Genesis is the world’s fastest assembler of precision connectors. From the world’s largest inventory of connector components, the company develops engineered solutions that support the military, industrial, medical, aerospace, transportation and energy sectors worldwide.
PEI-Genesis can build over 12 million unique connectors from stock at a rate of over 5000 per hour. Using proprietary automation for speed, consistency and quality, PEI-Genesis can build one piece or 10,000 pieces with equal ease; built to a standard or customised specification.
As the world’s largest distributor for ITT Interconnect Solutions, PEI-Genesis is the only partner that guarantees to build and ship connectors in 48 hours. No matter what the customer’s requirement is, there is a good chance that
PEI-Genesis will have the necessary parts in stock. There are no minimum order quantities, and the same 48-hour service applies to every order, whether it is for one connector or hundreds.
The company has recently carried out a major upgrade of its website and introduced a personalisation facility called MyPEI, which not only enables customers to shop online but also gives them access to a host of additional features.
Using the ‘Part # Search’ field at the top of every page, customers can view detailed technical information and product availability for a particular connector part number. Connector comparison charts are available to help customers select the right product for their application, and PEI-Genesis also has a specialist engineering team on hand to provide further advice if needed.
When logged into MyPEI, individuals can buy connectors online using either a credit card or their company’s trade account. In addition, MyPEI enables customers to view orders, track shipments, see over ten years of purchase history, print or
e-mail invoice copies, check contract pricing, request special quotations and even ask technical questions.
Headquartered in Philadelphia, PEI-Genesis has assembly facilities in Southampton, UK, and South Bend, Indiana, as well as 23 sales offices in eight countries.
