Low-Profile Connectors


Our low-profile connectors are a compact and lightweight solution for applications where weight, space, and/or EMI shielding are critical. By utilizing plated composite thermoplastic materials, they offer approximately 15-20% weight savings.

Comparable in size but higher in density than D-subminature configurations, these connectors are:

  • A field-repairable option for pre-wired connectors of similar size & density
  • Ideal for use in applications for signal, USB, Ethernet, and audio connections
  • Available in customizable materials (i.e., aluminum, steel, and composite)
  • Available with 50, 15, 26, and 44 positions

Available through Carlisle Direct!
Select PNs are available off-the-shelf in low-volume quantities through our Carlisle Direct Service.


Features Benefits

Utilizes standard MIL-C-39029 contacts

  • Faster and more economical solution compared to custom contacts
  • Standard crimp, insertion, and removal tools can be used, which can drive cost savings
  • Reduced lead time since contacts are readily available off-the-shelf from various sources
  • Crimp Contacts Allow for field repair/installation, saving time and money

Compact and lightweight

  • Up to 60% higher contact density than a D-Sub connectors with a similar footprint
  • 30% smaller in width and height than standard D-Sub connector/ backshell assemblies
  • 30% lighter than standard D-Sub connector/backshell assemblies
High density design
  • Field repairable, replaceable insert, and contact technology vs a pre-wired, potted, non-repairable assembly system as found in Micro D-Subminiature connectors
  • Results in a better-performing contact that carries more current and voltage per contact line on a similar footprint and pin count as a Micro D-Subminiature connector
Excellent shell-to-shell conductivity
  • Better-performing grounding path than standard D-Sub/Micro-D connectors
High-temperature capable (up to 175°C)
  • Compliant with aerospace flammability and toxicity requirements
