Revolutionary Next Generation ARINC 600 Receptacle Connector Provides Reduced Weight and Cost

Harrisburg, PA (PRWEB) September 14, 2010

Tyco Electronics, the leading global provider of electrical components, connectors, network solutions and specialty products, today launched the ARINC 600 next generation receptacle connector an innovative re-engineering of a classic solution to meet the needs of todays commercial aerospace and military applications.


Whether its collision avoidance, air-to-ground communications or in-flight entertainment, todays avionics manufacturers face a challenging economic environment and an ever-increasing demand for weight reduction, streamlined maintenance designs and aerodynamic efficiency. With those goals in mind, Tyco Electronics re-engineered the entire design and production process to create the lowest cost and lightest ARINC 600 connector on the market.


Tyco Electronics ARINC 600 next-gen connector is a perfect example of our commitment to re-thinking classic solutions in order to meet evolving customer demands and significantly reduce costs, said Steve McIntire, product manager, Tyco Electronics. In addition, customers can count on the highest reliability and quality that Tyco Electronics brings to all its products which are essential in flight components as well as military applications. The re-designed ARINC 600 next-gen connector meets all the same performance requirements of the original.


Tyco Electronics engineers were able to create a lighter connector with considerable cost savings by utilizing a stamped and formed contact system versus the traditional, screw-machined contact system. The stamped system also allowed for selectively plating only the critical socket contact tines with gold more instead of the whole contact, decreasing gold plating costs. In addition, weight was also reduced by changing to hollow contacts instead of the solid contacts used in the legacy design. Moreover, moving to a monoblock insert simplified the production process, saving even more costs.


By combining innovative technology and production processes with enduring ARINC 600 standards, the new ARINC 600 next generation receptacle connector offers:
