Flexcon Flexible Connectors

Second to none in continuity, signal and voltage testing.

Flexcon,Flexible,ConnectorsWhenever connector reliability is important, you'll find Airotronics' NASA-approved FLEXCON test connectors. Applications include electronic, electrical and communications systems, computers, space vehicles, missiles, aircraft and other military equipment.

The reason is FLEXCON's durable yet easy-to-use design. Each test connector is good for up to fifty bends. That's because all FLEXCON test connector joints are induction soldered, not crimped.

Even in the tightest spaces, FLEXCON connectors provide accessibility without damaging pins. FLEXCON offers you three hook-up options: permanent hook-up by capturing the wire down the barrel; in the side, capturing the wire with a set screw in the barrel to permit stacking; or in the barrel itself through an interchangeable converter on a banana plug that allows you to change sizes quickly and easily.

FLEXCON test connectors also offer a safe and easy way to patch, probe or connect into "MS/AN", miniature and sub-miniature connectors, as well as into commercial connectors. And when it comes to continuity, signal and voltage testing, FLEXCON test connectors are second to none.

Reliability, durability and ease-of-use set Airotronics FLEXCON test connectors ahead of the rest. Specify FLEXCON single-contact flexible test connectors.

Flexcon Flexible Connectors Specifications and Uses:

Flexcon,Flexible,Connectors

  • Pin and socket sizes 22, 20, 16, 12 and 8 conform to MIL Spec dimensions.

  • Heavy silver and/or gold contact plating.

  • Bi-axial lead attachment feature provides four methods of connection:
    1. Barrel lead entrance with set screw in side.
    2. Side lead entrance with set screw in barrel.
    3. Banana plug terminated test lead plugs into .1611.D.FLEXCON receptacle.
    4. Combination of 2 and 3 for multiple pick-off signals and voltages.

  • FLEXCON's shaft bends when subjected to accidental side loads during plug-in to prevent mating connector contact and/or insert damage.

  • Easy adjacent contact plug-in by bending FLEXCON's shaft.

  • Completely insulated for "live circuit" testing. Safe adjacent contact plug-in even with power ON.

  • Pin contact FLEXCONS can be used as test gauges for checking corresponding size socket contact's relative retention quality.

  • Probe 8-pin and 11-pin relay sockets with 590-12P and 590-12S. Probe 7 or 9-pin miniature sockets and tubes with 620-20P and 620-20S.

  • Use 590-16S for .045 or .062, 620-20S for .036 and 620-22S for .025 wire wrapped terminal test connectors.
