Military High Speed Interconnect Solutions

Hypertac can offer an extensive range of connector solutions that meet the requirements of military specifications. Our application solutions feature EMI/EMP protection, high speed data transmission capability, high contact density and high power. Our ruggedized contact system is available in Twinax, Triax and Quadrax versions. Hypertac high speed contact system meets the requirements of Ethernet Class F (CAT 7). It is compliant with the latest Ethernet standards (IEE802.3).In addition, we offer bespoke solutions to meet application specific requirements.

The next generation of vehicles require advanced technologies that enhance their performance, survivability, mobility and stealth. The introduction of these advanced technologies mean that power management in military vehicles is more critical than ever.

With the introduction of electric drive servo systems and vetronics into modern military vehicles, the efficient generation, distribution and storage of electrical power is crucial to achieve mission success.

To meet this increasing power demand, we have expanded our range of standard and application specific interconnect solutions. The PCB range has been miniaturised to cope with the more sophisticated and complex electronic architecture used in modern vehicles. Our products include:

•Quick release single, double and triple pole power connectors •High power and integrated rack and panel style connectors •Single pole power terminals •Custom cable to bulkhead connectors •Miniature PCB connectors
