CDM Electronics now offers TopFlite Components’ extensive portfolio of commercial-grade, military-equivalent backshells and adapters, protective covers, connector accessories, harsh environment connectors, and shield termination products. The robust parts are specifically engineered to satisfy all applicable performance and safety requirements to support MOG (Marine Oil and Gas), aerospace, military, transit, and medical market sectors.
TopFlite Components’ connectors and accessories are ideally suited for a variety of mission-critical applications requiring superior mechanical and electrical performance in harsh environments. Parts are commonly employed in military applications, including aerospace, avionics, tactical communications, and UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles). They are equally appropriate in commercial aerospace, MOG electronics and communications, factory production/automation and process control equipment, onboard railroad locomotives and rolling stock, medical diagnostic equipment, communications/antenna towers, and alternative energy signal and control equipment.
Adapters are supplied standard in environmental, non-environmental and EMI/RFI termination, as well as in shrink boot/molding configurations. To further ensure maximum design flexibility, customized parts are offered to meet the requirements of reduced weight, enhanced electrical performance, space savings and harsh environments. Backshells, adapters, protective covers and electrical connectors may be ordered in a composite configuration to protect the interconnects’ mating surfaces, while sealing the terminated connector against particle and moisture contamination. Ultem 2300 PEI is the standard composite material as it is extremely resistant to acidic solutions, and satisfies a wide range of fluid susceptibility requirements in the high-strength/high-heat environments commonly found in MOG, aerospace, industrial, medical, and military applications.
Protective covers for both plug and receptacle connectors feature a lanyard attachment to fasten the cover to the assembly when not in use. Covers are available for MIL-DTL-26482, MIL-DTL-5015, MIL-DTL-83723, and MIL-DTL-38999 connectors. Connector accessories comprise stainless steel termination bands and constant force termination bands to attach a braid or shield to a connector backshell. Additional accessories include shorting cans, dummy stowage receptacles, and connector extenders.
Base materials for custom products adhere to all relevant SAE and ASTM standards, or military specifications.
