Nano-Pegasus

Nano-Pegasus & Nano-Luminus build upon APCD’s success in light weight, plastic circular connectors in the aerospace market, in very small way.  Nano-Pegasus & Nano-Luminus are small, plastic, easy to use 
connectors designed specifically for sensing, command and control applications where a Micro or Nano Dsub would be used. Nano-Pegasus & Nano-Luminus provide exceptional performance in tight spaces, packing 11 high grade contacts in a shell size 5 housing (0.325” outer diameter).  That’s equivalent to 132 contacts per square inch!  Contacts are rated for 1a, 350 Vdc operation.  With a 0.050” spacing, this gives 500 Vdc insulation resistance, and 350 Vac dielectric withstanding at 70k feet.
 
Scoop proof construction and enclosed contacts protect the small gauge contacts during mating.  When mated, IP67 sealing is guaranteed by the interfacial seal, helping ensure the contacts are free from dust, moisture and corrosion.  And unlike many of the competitive connectors, which are multi-piece assemblies, Nano-Pegasus & Nano-Luminus shells are a single piece housing, impervious to humidity and dust, further enhancing clean, crack free operations over the full operating temperature and environmental conditions.  Shells are a high grade polyethermide construction, providing a temperature range of -65C to +175C, and high mating cycles, making Nano-Luminus suitable for man/machine interfaces.  Nano-PegasusS adds a copper & nickel overplate, providing 40db to 60db EMI shielding.
 
Available in solder cup for user assembly or as a finished good pig tail assembly.
