The 38999 style connector is one of the most common connectors used with harness assemblies, due to their high density and quick connect features.
These connectors not only deliver a quick disconnect capability, they offer a keying feature that prevents mismating.
Accurate mating alignment of the 38999 connector is critical, because it controls RF performance parameters such as insertion loss, return loss, and shielding effectiveness of the cables terminated with the connector.
Connector contacts are typically stainless steel and gold-plated beryllium copper, with a PTFE-based dielectric material.
Teledyne Storm has special contacts available which allow our harness assemblies to operate at frequencies much higher than the typical MIL Standard contacts allow.
Finally, the core of the connector is located within a supportive shell that is most commonly made from aluminum that is anodized or plated for corrosion protection.
Teledyne Storm has broad experience supplying Tailored Harness Solutions incorporating the 38999 style connector. This expertise in materials selection, alignment control, and the overall cable termination process ensures that our harnesses will be achieve your RF and mechanical performance requirements.
