The Nebula Series by Smiths Connectors is a high reliability SATA 6.0 Gbps connector line designed for harsh environment and rugged storage applications within the aerospace, defense and industrial market segments. Used to transmit and receive critical data, the Nebula Connector Series provide the absolute reliability required by mass storage devices to ensure maximum transfer speed under the most extreme conditions.

Standard SATA connectors were originally designed to meet the requirements of HDD (Hard Disk Drives) but are not durable enough to survive the capabilities of today’s SSD (Solid State Drives) which are now being used more and more in remote and harsh environments.

Nebula Connector Series employ Hypertac® contacts as the foundation of its reliability which offer up to 100,000 mating cycles, immunity to shock and vibration fretting, current carrying capacity up to 1.5 Amps per contact and low insertion /extraction forces; eliminating the quality and reliability issues associated with commodity connector solutions. Further, the pins and sockets are protected by recessed contacts within insulators which are made from rugged, heavy duty polymers that prevent cracking in extreme environments.

Smiths Connectors suite of products and services provides proven industry leading performance and unequaled reliability for heavy use, data storage applications such as rugged SSD storage solutions. Eliminate the weak link in your rugged data storage solution with the Smiths Connectors’ Nebula Series connector line.
