Leading connector solutions distributor Lane Electronics has significantly increased its ITW McMurdo inventory and now has available for immediate dispatch more ITW McMurdo connector ranges than ever before including the popular M200 and Red Range, as well as the 801 Series PCB connector system.

The ITW McMurdo M200 series PCB connectors are two-part, high density PCB connectors for board-to-board or cable-to-cable applications where high resistance to vibration and extreme reliability are paramount. They are two row, 2mm pitch connectors which are designed to meet BS9525 F0033 making them suitable for a wide range of high performance applications.

A small footprint for increased packing density widens the type of application satisfied by the M200 series. FC Lane can supply them in seven sizes of single row from 2 to 17 ways and in 11 sizes of double row from 4 to 34 ways. For extra security, M200 series connectors feature positive latching while a retaining strap is available for extra strain relief.

The ITW McMurdo Red Range consists of rugged industrial rack and panel connectors designed for use in blind mating applications throughout industry. The Red Range is available in four sizes with options for cable or PCB mounting. Users can specify 8, 16, 24 or 32 contacts all with a 5A current capability and peak working voltages to 800VDC and AC.

Key features include excellent current carrying characteristics, barrier or dowel polarisation and the use of floating bushes to assist alignment in hard to access applications. Red Range connectors are said to be good for up to 500 mating cycles and can be supplied with aluminium covers that come with a universal top or side entry cable clamp.

The ITW McMurdo 801 Series is a two row, two-part PCB connector system based on MIL-C-55302 and designed for use primarily in applications where high resistance to vibration and extreme reliability are critical. These include military and aerospace systems and high end engineering applications where constant exposure to vibration could be an issue that has caused other two-part connectors to fail. The 801 Series is approved to BS9525 N0001 and was originally designed to meet the requirements of BS9525 F0006, F00012, F0027 and F0041.

The ITW McMurdo 801 Series features a 1.27mm (0.05in) staggered pitch with 2.54mm (0.1in) between rows and can be supplied with a variety of removable contact types and configurations. These include low and high frequency and low and high power contacts in 19 body sizes up to 96 way. Terminations include solder, PC, straight, 90 degrees, crimp, and wire wrapping depending on the type of contact used. Polarising facilities are available.

The 801CX variant can be supplied with a customer specific mixed layout of high power, standard and coax contacts and all can be straight or 90° PCB mount.

Lane is an ideal source for all key connector types including circular, filtered, RF, coaxial, sub – miniature, backshells and adaptors, D connectors, aerospace, test & measurement, IDC, PCB connectors, edge connectors and connectors for rack and panel applications.
