Miltech Self-Locking Connectors
Many applications benefit from choosing Times self-locking connectors -
Threaded coupling connections can be problematic in high-vibration-environment applications. For many years, this has been addressed by using lockwire to secure coupling nuts. Lockwiring is a labor-intensive process requiring special tooling, and is associated with the potential creation of FOD (Foreign Object Debris). Times self-locking connectors on your assemblies eliminate the need for lockwiring, significantly reduce installation and maintenance times, and prevent lockwire-related FOD.
LOCKING MECHANISM OPERATION - Locking Collars are manually activated during cable assembly installation and removal:
Locking Collar type 1 Locking Collar type 2
TNC and larger interfaces employ type 1 locking collars. SMA and smaller interfaces employ type 2 locking collars.
EXAMPLES OF LOCKING MECHANISMS IN VARIOUS CONNECTOR CONFIGURATIONS
