Aerco has been appointed as the sole UK distributor by Winchester Electronics, the Connecticut-based company that is a world leader in rectangular connectors for high reliability applications. This addition to its connector portfolio means that Aerco now offers the widest range of rack and panel connectors in the UK.
The Winchester range includes cable to cable, cable to panel and cable to board applications providing small, lightweight, high voltage connectors with current rating up to 7.5A in size 20 format. High performance and extreme durability make them ideal for use in aircraft and instrumentation, telecommunication and portable equipment.
Products include the industry standard MRE with contact arrangements up to 104 way, the MRA series for size 16 contacts rated at 13A and MRAC with removable crimp contacts qualified to MIL-C-39029. Some series, notably the XAC, are available for external use in harsh environments.
Also supplied is the high density, SLE and SRE sub-miniature series with contacts as small as 0.025in diameter up to 50-way and rated at 3A per contact. Versions are available for either COTS applications or qualified to MIL-C-28748, while many connectors actually exceed the performance criteria of the Mil-spec.
