Multiple Mil-Spec Plating Alternatives to Cadmium



Amphenol Aerospace Operations has received authorization from the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) for their Black Zinc platingNickel, "Z" Class plating finish. This qualification covers all Amphenol Aerospace Series III D38999 connectors. Black Zinc Nickel and Durmalon are the only qualified Mil-Spec approved alternatives to Cadmium.

As commercial, industrial, and military markets are rapidly moving away from hazardous materials such as Cadmium, Amphenol is proud to be the only supplier offering customers two non-hazardous finishes. The Black Zinc Nickel and Durmalon finishes are RoHS compliant and meet or exceed MIL-DTL-38999 specifications. Both Black Zinc Nickel and Durmalon plating finishes can withstand 500 hours of dynamic salt spray and 500 mating cycles. Both plating options are also conductive and non-reflective.

Amphenol and Datakey Electronics Collaborate



RMTAmphenol Aerospace Operations has collaborated with Datakey Electronics to provide a rugged, removable storage solution. The result of this collaboration provides designers with a ruggedized flash drive and panel-mount receptacle solution, the Ruggedized Memory Terminal (RMT).

The Ruggedized Memory Terminal (RMT) integrates components from both corporations.  Instead of using a standard USB type A connector, the RMT leverages Datakey Electronics' SR4220PCB receptacle, which is integrated into Amphenol's field-proven MIL-DTL-38999 connector.  The receptacle mates with Datakey Electronics' UFX RUGGEDriveTM memory tokens, which provide USB flash drive functionality, but have a more rugged construction and employ additional security features than consumer flash drives.  Amphenol's high speed Oval Contact System (OCS), on the alternate side of the RMT, provides a reliable interconnect system for ruggedized computers and devices.
