Rugged 2M series connectors from Amphenol have been designed with reduced weight and footprint as well as higher contact density for the aerospace industry
Lightweight high density aerospace connectors

Amphenol Aerospace has enhanced its 2M Series connectors for interconnect applications that require high performance.  These upgraded micro-miniature connectors are 71% lighter, 52% smaller and have 60% more contact density than other connectors in their class.

Designed and tested to Mil-Spec standards and comparable to MIL-DTL-38999 connectors, the 2M Series connectors are intermateable and intermountable with existing micro-miniature aerospace/defense connectors.  These lightweight, high density connectors maximize SWaP (size, weight and power) in a variety of high-reliability, harsh environments.

Amphenol’s versatile 2M Series features 40 insert patterns including mix contact arrangement, multiple termination styles, high speed, filter, EMI/ESD and hermetic solutions.  Application-specific customized solutions are also available.

The enhanced connectors feature four coupling styles.  Each of the styles combines more than 40 years of Amphenol design and expertise, offering superior anti-decoupling on every connector as well as withstanding up to 44 g’s of random vibration and 300 g’s of shock on 2M801 and 2M805 Series.

The fast-mating 2M801 Dual-Start ACME thread connector features an innovative Dualok plug that exceeds MIL-DTL-38999 vibration levels and offers the highest coupling torque available in the micro-miniature connector market.  The 2M803 features a 1/4 turn bayonet coupling for quick mating in general avionics and weaponry applications.

For breakaway applications, like soldier-worn equipment, the 2M804’s push-pull coupling offers a quick disconnect.  The tri-start ACME thread-style 2M805 uses an anti-decoupling ratchet for exceptionally secure mating.

The rugged, micro-miniature 2M Series connectors are available in aluminum and stainless steel with various corrosion resistant platings including stainless steel/passivated, non-conductive aluminum/black anodize and aluminum/electroless nickel, aluminum/zinc-nickel with black chromate or olive drab.  The 2M Series also offers Durmalon aluminum/nickel-PTFE plating, the only mil-qualified RoHS-compliant plating in the industry.

The full line of complementary accessories for Amphenol’s 2M Series includes protection caps and strain relief, EMI and environmental back shells, flange gaskets, hex nuts, O-rings and heat shrink boots as well as value-added braided and overmolded cable assemblies.
