Connector Distributor, BTC Electronic Components, Expands Product Base with Preci-Dip AS39029 Contacts

Preci-Dip is a leading manufacturer of interconnect components and one of BTC Electronic Components franchised/authorized lines.

Wake Forest, NC, December 09, 2011 --( Connector distributor BTC Electronic Components (BTC) has announced the expansion of their product roster with Preci-Dip AS39029 (formerly Mil-C-39029) QPL Listed and Hoodless Contacts. Preci-Dip is a leading manufacturer of interconnect components and one of the world's foremost producers of screw-machined and spring-loaded contacts.

The AS39029 QPL Listed Contact features Preci-Dip’s patented reversed clip technology for harsh environments. This design offers several advantages over traditional slotted contact bodies including reduced dispersion of force value, better redundancy at the level of contact point and smaller difference between insertion and extraction force. These contacts have successfully passed all the qualification tests according to AS39029 and are QPL listed.

Preci-Dip’s AS39029 Hoodless Contacts consist of two parts – the contact body and the clip – which offers significant advantages over the slotted contact model. The contacts also feature Preci-Dip’s patented Eagle Grip Socket Contact Technology which provides optimal symmetry and concentricity of the contact fingers thanks to the compact geometry of the stamp part.

Both the pins and sockets for the AS39029 QPL Listed and Hoodless Contacts are used in wide array of connector types including: MIL-DTL-38999, MIL-DTL-24308, MIL-DTL-55302 and MIL-DTL-83733.

BTC stocks and distributes a wide range of connectors, accessories and contacts. The addition of Preci-Dip’s QPL Listed and Hoodless Contacts further expands the company’s robust product base. Since 1980, they have been solving their customers’ most difficult connector problems and recently became one of the first connector distributors to earn the AS9100 Rev C Certification.
