Radiall USA has unveiled the latest addition to its multipin connector line - the tool-less QM connector.
With long-lasting mechanical durability for harsh aerospace applications and the capacity to withstand shock, noise, high temperatures and vibration, the connector was originally designed to support the Boeing 787's wire integration needs.
Recognised as an industry standard "enabling technology", it also offers mating flexibility for other commercial aircraft wiring requirements.
The connector's rails are manufactured with high-conductive metal plating on composite shells and Radiall's shell polarisation positions and patented EPXB standard inserts are integrated in the design.
Ideal for aircraft which require integral strain relief with EMI backshell, it easily performs track and mate without tools through its rail mount installation, sliding and locking into place in a straightforward manner.
Meanwhile, ERNI Electronics recently introduced a new automated cable assembly system in order to produce cable connectors more efficiently and meet customer demand.
