SMP-SL (Self-Lock)

SMP-SL (Self-Lock)

HUBER+SUHNER SMP-SL (Self-Lock) is designed to ensure reliable electrical and mechanical performance in even the most extreme Aerospace & Defense environments.The unique and innovative combination of a MIL-STD-348 SMP interface together with a low profile self-locking design provides an integral solution offering with exceptional electrical and mechanical performance.

The locking mechanism has a visual inspection feature to confirm fully mated position and perceptible click when fully mated. SMP-SL connectors can only be de-mated with a dedicated removal tool to eliminate the risk of unintentional de-mating. The connector design retains the small form factor and future proof 40 GHz frequency range of a standard SMP interface per MIL-STD-348. SMP-SL connectors are 30% smaller in size and 66% lower in mass compared to equivalent solutions available in the market.

The initial product portfolio covers the most common applications needs with cable connectors, panel mount, board mount connectors, adaptors and de-mating tools. Cable connectors are available with Space grade light-weight, low loss SUCOFLEX cables, solderless minibend style cables and conformable Semi Rigid cables. The SMP-SL product line has Space Flight heritage and is qualified per MIL-STD-39012.
