Industry Leading Cable Harness Connectors by Filconn
FilConn integrated banding platform connectors are leading the industry in cable harness improvement for both shielded and unshielded cables.
Our IBP connectors reduce the overall profile of the traditional multiple component configuration by 60% and also reduce the total weight by 40%.
This space and weight savings is very easily achieved by building our banding platform or saddle clamp into the body of the connector for a very simple and extremely functional one-piece design.
This technology also allows for a drastic reduction in total part number count while at the same time providing the best possible EMI/RFI grounding available. FilConn IBP connectors are available in every mil-spec series and in straight, 45, and 90-degree design ensuring that limited space will never again limit the performance or capability of your cables.
Filconn Custom Receptacles Connectors
It is estimated that 85% of receptacles sold in the connector industry have contacts that are PC Tail type termination.
While receptacles with standard crimp contacts are widely available with short lead times and competitive pricing, the custom PC Tail contacts often have long lead times. Each customer requires PC Tail contacts with unique length and diameter requirements for their specific application. Because of this, it is not unheard of for 12-week deliveries being delayed out to 14-16 weeks and still, the resulting product fails to meet expectations for overall fit. Additionally, the connector rear area where there are mil-spec required accessory threads and teeth create unnecessary length problems. FilConn is now offering an alternative to this scenario.
At FilConn, we have been making filtered and custom connectors for many years. It is quick and easy for us to design and produce a connector that meets the customer’s specific needs. We manufacture all of our own shells which allows us to easily provide receptacles with custom shell dimensions and features such as eliminating the rear threads and teeth if they are not required. This results in space and weight savings for applications that are weight sensitive. Additionally, our PC Tails are designed and machined to meet custom specifications so our customers can be assured of a perfect fit. Finally, we can offer value-added features such as clinch-nuts, helicoils and stand-offs. All with as little as 4 weeks lead time.
Filconn Ruggedized RJ45 Conversion Connectors
FilConn’s Ruggedized RJ45 Conversion Connector offers the only option in converting the standard commercial industry interface to a Mil-spec quality design.
No other product offers you the durability of Mil-standard crimp contact assembly to carry your Ethernet signal across any platform and still provides a commercial interface.
With our one-piece integrated banding platform design, it also allows you to properly shield your cable to meet both EMI and environmental requirements.
Filconn Connector Savers Maintain Integrity of Extreme Connector Use
FilConn Connector Savers are a great way to maintain the integrity of any connectors that are subject to extreme use and repetitive mate and de‐mate cycles.
Many test systems may see as many as 500 mate/de‐mate cycles and using our Connector Saver will save you time and money by maintaining a low usage on the primary connector interface and absorbing all the abuse with the saver.
Filtered Connector Savers are also available and a great way to manage any unexpected noise without having to redesign your system to add a filter.
Filconn Side Mount MIL-Spec Connectors
FilConn has developed a unique side mount connector receptacle design. The photo below shows a size 25 38999 Series III connector with the side mount technology incorporated.
This mounting design was developed in concert with several customers who had a need for a connector but did not have the luxury of a bulkhead panel to provide the typical flange or jam nut mounting.
This application can be developed as a connector adapter with a receptacle interface on one end and a plug interface on the other. FilConn can also provide a receptacle interface and solder cup terminations for typical wire harness attachment. The mil-spec compliant mating interface can be tailored to the customers’ needs with any shell size and insert arrangement required. Also, FilConn’s standard filtering and TVS protection can be applied to this product as well.
Filconn USB and 38999 Ruggedized Connectors
The FilConn thumb drive provides up to 128gb of memory capability in a very durable and compact configuration.
Mil-38999 connector interface provides a reliable mechanism for continuous mating cycles and durability when not in use. This product is available in USB 2.0, USB 3.0, and eSata configurations.
Filconn’s conversion connector is a simple way to convert the standard commercial USB interface to a high-reliability harsh environment mil-circular configuration.
The USB conversion connector is offered in many different sizes and shape options including Jam nut, flange mount, or side mount attachment styles.
Filconn Conversion Connectors
FilConn Conversion Connectors are especially effective in today’s system integration applications.
Many times there is a need to install today’s technology in yesterday’s aircraft and this presents a unique challenge to the integrator in trying to find a cost-effective and reliable way to mate the new with the old. At times this task requires extra interfaces and labor-intensive low-reliability splicing.
FilConn Conversion Connectors provide a high level of reliability and simple “plug and play” connector to connector interface. At FilConn, Inc. we will custom design and manufacture your pigtail or reduction splice requirements internal to the connector at our factory so that quality and reliability are of the highest standard.
Options for conversion connectors are practically limitless: single connector to single connector reductions ranging from 125 pin down to 4 pin, single connector to multi-connector conversions are also available.
