2024: the year for AFFORDABLE reliability?

Modern connectors face demanding applications often in harsh environments. With the adoption of 5G wireless communications and a big jump in automation seen this year, designers need to provide reliable connectivity for many different environments, but can this still be done at any cost?

High reliability is the gold standard of connectors, often including products with a military pedigree or those from established premium brands. For decades, manufacturers have developed connectors to conform to the highest specifications, which are subjected to rigorous testing and designed to deliver superior reliability in severe environments.

Whilst these high-performance connectors deliver reliability, often measured in a significant number of mating cycles, this superior performance comes at a price. However, in an era of extended lead-times, rising costs and logistical challenges, will 2024 be the time to focus on whether this gold standard is absolutely critical, or will designers be looking at whether their connector solution is actually over specified?

Affordable Reliability

Mating cycles are not the only measure of a connector’s performance, its environment must also be considered.We talk regularly of IP ratings, shock and vibration, and resistance to electromagnetic interference (EMI).The need to perform under these conditions will have a huge effect on the design of any connector, but there are plenty of affordable connectors that have been tested extensively and will provide excellent service.

For MH Connectors, 2024 will see us launch an exciting range of affordable, yet tested and highly reliable push-pull and Micro-D connectors that will provide a cost-effective alternative without compromising on performance. Designed for use in applications where failure is not an option, but without the price tag of a military standard or premium brand, these connectors will deliver in tough conditions.
