[SatNews] TE Connectivity (TE) has announced the approval of their new RoHS-compliant black zinc nickel “Z” plating for AS85049 adapters /82 to /90.
AS85049 is a military specification for connector accessories designed to work with military connectors like those built to MIL-DTL-38999. The AS85049/82 - /90 adapters feature side-entry band straps, making them easier to install and repair, and providing high-reliability under vibration due to the self-coupling locking nut. The adapters are offered in straight, 45-degree and 90-degree formats.
TE’s approved products include adapters and band straps for M85049 (/88-90) Code 40, Code 41 (/85-87), and Code 54 (/82-84) in all three angles in cadmium-plated and electroless-plated aluminum. Also included are narrow 1/8 inch (/128-7 and 8) and ¼ inch (/128-1 to -4) bands. This product is designed to work with MIL-DTL-38999 Series III and IV, MIL-DTL-38999 Series I and II, AS50151, MIL-DTL-26482 Series II, SAE AS81703 Series III, and MIL-DTL-83723 Series III.
These adapters and band straps are ideal for internal and external cables assemblies within the aerospace and marine markets, as well as in space-based systems and military ground vehicles.
“This solution helps our customers reduce cadmium usage and provides enhanced performance,” said Daniel Redmon, Product Manager, TE Global Aerospace, Defense & Marine. “The black zinc nickel plating is approved as defined by MIL-DTL-38999L, and offers the same level of electrical performance, harsh environment protection and temperature ranges as cadmium finishes.”
