Carlisle Interconnect Technologies introduces the XMP™ interconnect series designed to provide a convenient blind-mateable solution, specifically for ultra high-power applications. 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 RF-excited CO2 lasers.
Additionally, we can provide a variety of custom XMP™ connectors with different dielectric materials, alternate plating metals and back-end interface to accommodate different types of flexible cables. The XMP™ interconnect series is ideal for design in industrial applications (lasers); radars; missile and satellite systems and commercial applications.
