M24308 connectors are a United States military standard of D-subminiature connectors. They come in many different styles and formats with a variety of options in regard to their mounting (rigid or standard), contacts (crimp, pin and socket, solder, or insulation displacement), and type (non-environmental, polarized shell, miniature, rack, and panel). They have a wide temperature range and are designed to operate between -55 degrees Celcius and +125 degrees Celcius. Compact and spatially efficient, M24308 connectors are ideal for high-density packages. Their reliability, strength, and effectiveness make them a great choice for a number of different industries including the most strenuous fields like the military and aerospace. You can find these connectors assisting in everything from communication and information technology to aircraft missiles and satellites.
When space and weight are especially important and the user needs to accommodate a large number of circuits in proportion to their size, the M24308 connector is a great choice. Because of its size and efficiency, it is well suited for aircrafts, missiles, and related ground support systems. M24308 connectors are often used for applications such as military equipment, ground support devices, computer peripheral equipment, modems, information systems, communication systems, and industrial instrumentation. With the use of accessories and integral clamps, these connectors (which are designed primarily for use in rack and panel applications) can be adapted for other cabling requirements. Some of their typical benefits include non-magnetic properties, a standard or high-density layout, no outgassing, and machined contacts. Because of this, they are sometimes used in the aerospace industry, the military, and space (in orbit satellites).
Their military usage is specific and divided into classes:
- Classes G and N connectors are intended for use in applications where the operating temperature range is -55 degrees Celsius to +125 degrees Celsius.
- Class N connectors are intended for use in applications where the presence of residual magnetism must be kept at low levels.
- Class H receptacles are intended for use when the atmospheric pressures must be contained across the wall or panels on which the connectors are mounted.
- Class D, K, and M connectors intended for use with high reliability space applications.
