Major defense contractors rely on CW Industries for innovative connector designs and in-stock QPL interconnection products. They recognize CW as a resourceful partner with a proven track record in creating new interconnection products that meet the high density and high shock requirements of today’s sophisticated military electronics equipment.
CW Industries helped DOD develop MIL-DTL-83503 for Insulation Displacement Connectors, and our modern assembly facilities produce the industry's only MIL-DTL-24308, QPL approved IDC D-Subminiature Connectors, as well as MIL-DTL-28804 General Purpose Rectangular Connectors.
You'll find our interconnection products on major defense systems including the F-16, Standard Missile and the US Navy shipboard Phalanx anti-missile systems. CW is an ITAR registered company – M22285 and our cage code is 79727
Our technical team provides comprehensive design, development and support to enable our customers to go from product concept to production without delay, and test your products in our UL, CSA and DOD-certified laboratory. When your applications require a high level of innovation, precision, quality and reliability, contact CW Industries.
Military Specifications have been developed to define minimum acceptable performance standards for components used in today’s sophisticated military electronics equipment. Those components that meet the performance standards and physical parameters defined in these specifications are placed on a Government “Qualified Products List” (QPL); and they remain on this list provided ongoing and continuing “acceptance” tests indicate that the product continues to meet the specification requirements.
Mil-DTL-83503 establishes the physical, material, and performance standards for IDCs purchased for military use. These include physical dimensions, materials of construction, and performance standards–high and low temperature, thermal and mechanical shock, dielectric withstanding voltage, cable retention, contact retention, cable flexing, contact resistance, mating and un-mating forces, durability, and others. The specifications also describe test methods used to determine component acceptability for each of these standards.
Standardization of IDCs has been promoted and supported by the requirements of MIL-DTL-83503 and MIL-DTL-24308. These specifications have proven useful, not only by tending to increase the performance levels that IDC manufacturers strive to achieve, but by setting up general criteria that lead to predictable performance and interchangeability among various IDC types from various sources.
CW’s position of leadership in the industry is a direct result of our leading role in the development of these standards. Our engineers helped the Department of Defense establish the standards and our IDCs were among the first placed on the QPL.
