Micro Connectors for Space-Constrained Mil-Aero, Missile & Radar Systems

Space-saving, lightweight design with integrated backshells, 360 degree EMI shielding & mechanical protection

Nicomatic launches its new DBMM hi-rel connector range at DSEI 2021.  On display for the first time on Stand H2-872, the new DBMM Series combine the advantages of Nicomatic’s 2mm pitch metal DMM connectors with a completely new design of integrated backshell to provide 360 degree EMI shielding in an ultra-compact form factor.  The new DBMM Series is particularly suited to applications where space and weight are at a premium, such as missile systems, military aircraft and radar systems.  

Rugged DBMM connectors conform to MIL-DTL-83513G performance specifications and allow designers a wide choice of contact arrangements compared to other mil-spec connectors such as Micro-D or Sub-D.  Contacts can be signal (LF), power (HP) and coax (HF), with hundreds of thousands of different combinations possible. The development of the new DBMM Series as part of Nicomatic’s standard range came about as the result of a number of voice-of-customer requests for custom interconnects based on the performance parameters of the DMM Series.

The DBMM range with its new type of backshell measures only 15mm in depth compared to a standard backshell plus separate DMM connector, which measures 35mm in depth in the smallest available combination. As well as its ultra-compact form factor, the new DBMM range is extremely lightweight.  Easier handling is another advantage, especially important in critical hi-rel applications.  A further advantage is the lower price point of the DBMM Range compared to DMM connectors with separate mono or split backshells.

Two models are currently available in the new DBMM Series: the DBMM220 with 4 to 32 signal (LF), power (HP) or coax (HF) contacts, and the DBMM320 which offers between 6 and 48 (LF), power (HP) or coax (HF) contacts.  Both models are available for straight to cable fix in either male or female orientation with D53B jackscrews.
