Harrisburg, Pennsylvania –TE Connectivity (TE) is extending its 369 connector series with the introduction of the 369 shielded rectangular connectors for environments that demand ambient electromagnetic interference (EMI) noise protection. These connectors incorporate the benefits of the 369 series, which is qualified for use in a wide range of applications.
TE’s new rectangular connectors have been tested to withstand indirect lightning strikes of 3.6kA and are rated to provide effective shielding of greater than 60dB at low frequencies and greater than 40dB at high frequencies.
This EMI protection technology is wrapped in a lightweight, non-toxic (RoHS-compliant) composite nickel shell that can lead to up to 75% weight savings. 369 series shielded connectors enable data transfer rates of up to 100Mbs (100 Base-T1) and are backward compatible with current 369 product offerings.
369 series connectors save space with a lightweight, small form factor design. Designed to MIL-DTL-38999 levels of performance, 369 series connectors are ideally suited for harsh military environments.
