commercial/industrial/military connectors & custom cable assemblies Circular & D-Sub Connectors API Technologies has been a leader in providing application specific EMI filtered connector solutions since its founding in 1968. Our Spectrum Control brand offers the industry’s most extensive line of circular and D-Sub connectors that are designed for high reliability or demanding environmental applications such as commercial aviation and avionics, off-highway and agricultural vehicles, hi-rel power supplies, as well as all airborne, ship or ground-based military applications. At API, we know it’s rare to find an off-the-shelf connector that completely satisfies the environmental, mechanical and electrical requirements of demanding, high reliability applications. Our engineering team is ready to modify one of these existing designs or start with a “clean sheet” to ensure our connector satisfies all of your requirements. Custom Cables & Harnessing To assist our customers in meeting their Hi-Rel requirements, API has developed extensive capabilities to provide custom cables and connector harnessing. Utilizing our dedicated manufacturing facility that is AS9100 Rev C/ISO 9001:2008 certified, the Spectrum Control line includes signal and discrete cables, RF cables, power cables, connector harness assemblies and complete system integration. Vertical Integration As a fully vertically integrated company, API’s Spectrum Control brand is truly unique among connector suppliers. We design and manufacture all components for our circular filtered and unfiltered connectors. From shells and shields to seals and grommets, each component of your custom connector undergoes our extensive assembly and testing process, ensuring API is able to deliver extremely reliable, high performance connectors to fit both your economic and mechanical needs. Our complete in-house production capability allows us to maintain tighter quality control, in turn enabling us to provide our customers with high quality parts at very competitive prices. In addition, our vertical integration facilitates the industry’s shortest lead-times of 8 to 10 weeks, standard. 2 commercial/industrial/military circular connectors In response to market demand, we have developed a line of standard circular connectors for commercial, industrial and military applications that are completely intermateable with MIL-DTL38999 Series III compact shell connectors. To meet this need, we reviewed our extensive library of proven API Technologies’ Spectrum Control brand connector designs to create a line of EMI filtered or unfiltered circular connectors that are highly reliable, durable and fully customizable. Our standard circular connectors are available in wall mount, jam nut or straight plug shell options, 9 different shell sizes, 5 contact/termination styles and 18 insert configurations. EMI Filtered or Specialty Unfiltered Connectors API’s Spectrum Control line offers custom circular connectors in EMI filtered or unfiltered styles, including MIL-DTL-55116, -83723, -24308, -26482 and -5015. Our filtered compact shell connectors provide an effective filtering device that reduces the amount of real estate required within a product enclosure. Using our expertise in EMI filter design and manufacturing, we offer planar-style filtered arrays, available in C and Pi circuits. Other filter circuits including transient protection are available. In addition, we can accommodate your quick-turn schedule for prototyping by adding either planar or tubular capacitor filtering to the rear of a standard connector. Unfiltered circular connectors also can be designed to meet various environmental and mechanical specifications. As with our filtered connectors, API offers multiple termination styles, various material and finishing options and a variety of shell styles and sizes. Integral strain relief, as well as power, signal and coax line features are also available. Composite Shell Connectors For even greater design flexibility, API now offers composite shell circular connectors. These composite connectors feature shells fabricated from high grade thermoplastic and are designed to replace traditional metal connector shells for substantial weight reduction. The new composite shell maintains the form, fit and function of the original connector shell, making it ideal for applications where weight is a critical factor. A composite shell version of any API’s Spectrum Control circular connector design is available. Custom Mechanical Packages Our vertical integration includes a unique material process and extensive machining capabilities, allowing us to easily modify the mechanical package of any connector, ensuring fast and affordable custom designs. Other connector manufacturers mold their composite shells, making custom designs expensive. At API, custom mechanical variations are machined allowing for unique packages without traditional tooling charges. Hermetically Sealed Connectors API has developed a new family of hermetically sealed circular connectors that protect against changes in atmospheric pressure and exposure to humidity, grime, and chemicals, making them ideal for aerospace engine control, hydraulic, and caustic environments where harsh conditions could exist. The hermetically sealed connector’s receptacle has a seal of 10-7cm3 and comes in filtered and unfiltered versions. Mini-MIL Connectors API’s new Spectrum Control brand Mini-MIL circular connectors are small and lightweight offering space and weight savings while providing equivalent performance to standard MIL-DTL-38999 connectors. These connectors are available filtered with C, Pi or mixed capacitance, or unfiltered, with a range of engagement, termination and receptacle types. Mini-MIL connectors can be customized to satisfy various mechanical and electrical requirements and are ideal for military, industrial and medical applications where space restrictions do not allow for larger 38999 connectors. 3 commercial/industrial circular connectors API offers a premium Spectrum Control line of circular filtered connectors completely intermateable with MILDTL-38999 Series lll. These custom high reliability, circular connectors have a proven reputation for superior quality and performance. Several types of EMI filtering are available (see figures at right).

Our over-molded connector backshells are completely weather sealed and EMI shielded and cost a fraction of a typical connector backshell. We machine our own over-molded backshells and then seal the attached wires and shielding with an extremely durable mold material. The result is a more attractive connector that is far more resistant to environmental conditions and costs 10 to 20 times less than traditional backshells. 8 • API’s Spectrum Control brand of over-mold backshells available for almost any connector configuration • Over-molding provides better strain relief than heat shrink or metal backshells • Total encapsulation of mold material protects against weather and environmental degradation • Over-molded connector is 10 to 20x less expensive than traditional backshells • More attractive final assembly, custom mold imprinting available • Lead times emi filtered d-sub connectors For more than 45 years, API’s Spectrum Control brand has been a leader in designing and manufacturing EMI filtered D-Sub connectors for high reliability applications. Our wide range of connector options will help you improve performance, save board space and reduce costs by managing EMI at the signal and power I/O. API’s Spectrum Control brand filtered connector advantages include: • Low ground impedance - Full ground plate and metallic shell provide minimal impedance and superior performance • Eliminate re-radiation - Filtered connector at interface leaves no path for bypassing the filter • Ground plane shielding - Filtered connector ground planes shield the box even at the connector port • Efficient space utilization - Filters located in the connectors provide additional space on PCB board • Consistent performance - Filtered connectors provide more consistent pin to pin performance • Fewer components - Filtered connectors reduce component count creating cost savings • Reliability - 100% testing of filters, on-board filters are usually spot tested The miniaturization of electronic systems and sub-systems is pushing designers to increase circuit densities within smaller packages. To address this growing need, API has developed a line of filtered Hi-Density D-subminiature connectors. This new line of connectors incorporates the high performance and reliable filtering of API’s standard D-subs in the Hi-Density format.
