Mighty Mouse Connectors and Cables

The World's Most Advanced and Mature High-Performance Ultraminiature Connectors - Series 80

Glenair has recognized a growing need in tactical military, aerospace and specialty industrial markets for a connector series that mimics the electrical and mechanical performance of popular mil-standard connectors, such as MIL-DTL-38999, but in a smaller and lighter package. The Series 80 Mighty Mouse Connector is perfectly suited for the wide range of power and signal applications that depend on reliable environmental and mechanical performance and electromagnetic compatibility as well as high-speed applications such as gigabit Ethernet. Six different coupling styles are offered. Size #23 crimp contacts are standard, set on .076" centers. At just half the size and weight of D38999, the high-performance Mighty Mouse is now specified on hundreds of mission-critical interconnect applications worldwide and has become the de facto high-performance connector solution for many former users of D38999.

Glenair developed the Series 80 Mighty Mouse over a dozen years ago as a smaller and lighter version of D38999. Our goal was to radically reduce the size and weight of this flight-critical connector while maintaining its core performance features. Our miniaturization work took place in three key areas beginning with reduction of the shell package size and the integration of banding and shrink boot accessory functions. The integration of the backshell not only saves size and weight, it reduces cost and complexity.

Glass-to-Metal Seal Hermetic Connectors

Military QPL and Commercial Connectors for Harsh Environment Air-Tight-Seal Applications

Hermetic connectors are designed for use in harsh application environments. Sensitive photographic, sensor and surveillance equipment mounted in the tactical Unmanned Aerial Vehicle for example, must be able to operate in severe weather conditions, at high altitudes, under extremes of atmospheric pressure and in rapidly changing temperature gradients. Hermetic connector devices interconnecting the vacuum sealed black box equipment are selected for their ability to protect the controlled equipment environment by maintaining an air-tight seal between severe flight conditions and aircraft's sensitive payload.

Hermetic connectors are specified for applications as divergent as submarines and orbiting satellites. They are deployed to resist moisture ingress in underground applications and to withstand pressure differentials in vacuum chambers, laboratory equipment and commercial and military aircraft. Hermetic connectors, such as the MIL-DTL-38999 Series I, II, III and IV supplied by Glenair, are principally designed for use in military aerospace—in fact, the requirement for connector hermeticity was originally driven by military electronic applications. But the products are equally at home in commercial applications such as oil-patch, logging equipment or medical devices.
