Key features and benefits

Description

The microComp® series is a miniature high density rectangular connector.

microComp® shells are available in strengthened fiber glass material for a maximum mechanical resistance. Composite shells are up to 36% lighter than aluminum shells. The advanced «Nickel over composite» plating process used on microComp® has been qualified on SOURIAU MIL-DTL-38999 product range. This technology selected by Boeing and Airbus, provides optimized shielding and shell-to-shell continuity.

microComp® male connectors are tamper proof. On HD D-Sub and D-Sub male contacts are the fragile parts of the connector because they can easily be bent. On microComp® male contacts are fully shrouded by the insulator: they are protected and cannot be bent.

With its very short contacts, microComp® connectors have high Ethernet performance.
