FCT Electronics is a manufacturer of electrical connectors and associated products for the electronics industry. The FCT Electronics product line-up includes a full line of D-Sub connectors, hoods and accessories, as well as, high voltage contacts and accessories to be used with our connectors.
FCT Electronics High Density D-Sub Connectors for In-Flight Entertainment are a selection of mixed-contact D-subs that along with with spring locks allow for secure locking with 10-12lbs. of retention force for high reliability in heavy vibration environments, such as in-flight entertainment systems used in the commercial air industry. These FCT D-subs include crimp and poke connectors that have internal metal contact retention clip rings. This feature provides a minimum pull out forces of 9lbs. as required by MIL-DTL-24308m and a higher end-user life cycle for applications in which field contact replacement or repair is a common requirement.
FCT Electronics Mixed Layout Connectors are designed so that any FCT connectors, such as 75 and 50 Ohm coaxial contacts, high power contacts up to 40 A, high voltage contacts up to 3 kV, and pneumatic contacts can be installed in any other contact arrangements from FCT Electronics. Mixed Layout Connectors feature high abrasion and corrosion resistance, low thermal contact resistance, very good contact characteristics, excellent solderability, and even plating density. Depending on the application, solder pot, straight PCB, or crimp terminations are available, as well as insertion and removal tools for the crimp versions to ensure safe and reliable installation.
FCT Electronics Waterproof Connectors offer plastic hoods suitable for all shell sizes and are available for various types of connectors, such as High Density and Mixed Layout. Waterproof Connectors are available in varying connector sizes for both front and reverse mating, as a pin or socket connector, can be mounted with coaxial, high power and high voltage contacts, and are available with straight and right-angled signal contacts for PCB as well as solder terminations.
FCT Electronics High Density D-Sub Connectors feature trapeze shaped metal shells which offer good shielding qualities, are mechanically stable, and prevent misalignment or bending of contacts. High Density D-Sub Connectors are available in straight and right angled versions for P.C. boards, offer compact design and low mounting flange, and can also be supplied for cable assemblies in solder or crimp version. The heat resistant plastics used in the production of FCT Electronics High Density D-Sub Connectors meet UL94V-0 requirements. Due to the higher density of 15, 26, 44, 62 and 78 contacts, High Density D-Sub Connectors are ideally suited for the most modern applications in data transmission and telecommunications, as well as in measurement, regulation, and control devices.
FCT Electronics PCB Mixed D-Sub connectors have mixed contact arrangements allow coaxial and/or power contacts to be combined with standard signal contacts in a single housing. The connectors is ideal for PCB applications and designed for straight- and right-angle PC tail versions.
FCT Electronics' waterproof hood is suitable for D-Sub standard, mixed-layout, and high-density connectors. The low-profile hood has a strain relief for spring element, locks with two slotted screws, a protection level of IP67 according to DIN 40050, and cable diameters of 0.236" to 0.315" or 0.315" to 0.413". The FWA waterproof hood is for rear-mounted mating connectors and the FWAF version is for front-mounted mating connectors.
