The XMP™ connectors combine our design expertise in push-on connectors with application specific materials to achieve high power handling capability at RF frequencies. Similar to its predecessors, the XMP™ series is durable in construction and can tolerate radial and axial misalignment for multiple engagement/disengagement cycles without degradation in electrical performance.
The first set of XMP connectors were designed specifically for use in RF-Excited CO2 lasers that are capable of delivering between 100W to 600W of power. These connectors were constructed from brass bodies with Beryllium Copper male and female center contacts, a PTFE dielectric and silver over copper plating. They are capable of handling greater than 3 KW (Kilowatts) of power at 100 MHz, ideal for design in the aforementioned lasers.
Additionally, we can provide a variety of custom XMP connectors with different dielectric materials, alternate plating metals, and to accommodate different types of flexible cables. As such, the XMP Interconnect series is ideal for design in industrial applications (lasers); Radar, missile and satellite systems, as well as, commercial applications.
