St. Augustine, Florida, December 21, 2012…Carlisle Interconnect Technologies formally announced its new family of Push-On connectors, SMP-L™ that incorporates a patent pending locking mechanism called Secure-Lok™. The locking feature adds a strong retention force to the standard Push-On connector which makes it ideal for rugged military and commercial applications that are susceptible to vibration. In addition, this simple locking mechanism does not require any additional tools to engage or disengage the connector.  Finally, the small form factor of the SMP-L connector series reduces weight and size to accommodate dense packaging of RF/Microwave systems.
The SMP-L™ retains the benefits of a Push-On connector and is compatible with the entire SMP connector line. Furthermore, Sealed IP67 compliant designs are also available. The ruggedized features of the SMP-L connectors make them suitable for use in Radars, Military Radios, Missiles, Guided Munitions, Space, and Industrial applications.

ο    Frequency Range: DC - 40 GHz
ο    Unique locking mechanism in a push-on configuration
ο    Superior ruggedability and performance compared to standard push-on connectors
ο    Fully compatible with SMP standard product line
