Filtered connectors

filtered_connectors_generique

ARINC 600 Connectors are a recognized standard rack and panel connector for aircraft applications. The ARINC 600 is ithe successor to the ARINC 404, the ARINC 600 features lower mating force contacts, increased contact count and a front release, floating keying system.

The integration of the filter elements into the connector, rather than a board level solution, results in many advantages to the user:

  • Reduction in space and weight
  • Reduction in inspection and assembly labour
  • Improved high frequency EMI performance by elimination of parasitic effects associated with board level filters
  • Superior shielding effectiveness

485 series

The Amphenol 485 series is a range of filtered ARINC 404 and 600 rack and panel connectors designed to provide space and cost-effective solutions to EMC compliance issues in avionics products. Amphenol’s filtered ARINC connectors are used extensively on Boeing, McDonnell Douglas and Airbus avionics equipment and a wide range of other military and commercial applications. The majority of the Amphenol filtered ARINC connector designs incorporate planar capacitor array technology in a solderless, stress-isolated configuration. This results in superior thermal and physical shock performance and unparalleled long term reliability. These products have been extensively qualified to the requirements of ARINC 600-9 and MIL-C-81659 and there are numerous qualification test reports available for review.

481/308 series: MIL-C-24308 style (D-Sub) filter connectors

Amphenol offers two products which are designed for aerospace applications where high reliability and superior environmental and electrical performance are required. The 481 series of filtered D–Sub connectors has been in production for over 30 years using tubular capacitor filter technology. In the late 1980’s, Amphenol developed a planar filter capacitor version of the same connector, the 308 series. As a result, Amphenol has the widest product offering in the industry and can provide either technology as the application and production requirements dictate.

  • 481 series: tubular capacitor technology
  • 308 series: planar capacitor technology

FX series: filter terminal blocks, headers, discrete filters and specials

Amphenol’s FX series of Discrete Feed-thru Filters offer excellent, low cost filter solutions for telecom, industrial, military and aerospace electronics applications, especially where small size and high performance are important . Manufactured to meet the requirements of Mil-F-15733, the FX discrete filters are available in threaded bushing and soldermount styles with capacitance ranges from 10pF to 600nF. Due to Amphenol’s unique manufacturing process, higher capacitance values and greater voltage withstand capabilities are achieved with the same industry standard package sizes.

164F series

Amphenol’s 164F series is a line of filtered MIL-C-55116 U-183( )/U audio connectors for use in army, airborne, and naval transceiver applications. Designed specifically for man-pack, vehicle mounted, shipboard or aircraft installed applications, the 164F series offers communication security and ECCM capabilities.

M13 series

Amphenol Canada’s M13 connector series is a range of filtered MIL-C-83513 Micro-D products for military and aerospace applications. These extremely small (0.050″ center spacing) filter connectors employ monolithic planar capacitors in a rugged, highdensity package ideally suited for applications where space and weight is restricted. Available in a variety of filter types and mechanical configurations, including wired harnesses, the M13 series are fully intermateable with all standard MIL-C-8351 3 connectors and meet the applicable performance and environmental requirements.
