HyperRel connectors feature Hypertac hyperboloid contact technology embedded in MIL-C-38999 series III style shells. The Hypertac contact technology offers a contact sleeve that is formed by wires strung at an angle to the socket’s axis. When the pins are inserted into the sleeve, the wires stretch around it, providing numerous linear contact paths. The pin-into-hyperboloid-basket design delivers such advantages as low contact forces, low contact resistance, and high mating cycles. Most importantly for rugged applications, the connector technology ensures signal integrity while eliminating contact fretting under the most severe shock and vibration conditions.
