Cinch Turns up the Heat on Rugged Connector Solutions
New high temperature Interconnect system ensures greater reliability in extreme conditions
LOMBARD, ILLINOIS - May 29, 2008 - Cinch Connectors today announced a new addition to its Dura-Con(TM) Micro-D connector family. This new connector solution is capable of performing in extreme temperatures from -40°C to +175°C. The connectors are constructed from material designed to meet extreme mechanical and electrical conditions in rugged military and high-end industrial applications, such as down hole directional drilling.
The pairing of a high temperature insulator and Cinch's patented twist pin design, featuring 7 points of contact and the proven ability to operate under extreme conditions of shock and vibration, results in an ideal interconnect solution delivering maximum dependability with a minimal physical footprint. These interconnects can handle over 50 G's of shock (Mil-Std 1344, Method 2004, Condition E) and 20 G's of vibration (Mil-Std 1344, Method 2005, Condition IV), while providing reliable, low-resistance connectivity.
Cinch's unique plug insulators, which are available in tooled sizes in 9-15-25-50-100-120 positions, have been designed to provide increased electrical protection between contact cavities, preventing any potential shorts in exposed wire or voids, which may occur during extreme temperature fluctuations. Additional size and configurations are also available upon request.
For over 20 years, Cinch has been building rugged micro harnesses for military and industrial applications. From simple point to point to the complexity of multi-branch, Cinch's harness technology is designed to meet the high temperature, shock and vibration requirements of the Dura-Con Micro-D connector family.
Cinch is a global supplier of high reliability, high quality connectors, cables and harnesses to the Computer, Datacom, Telecom, Military Aerospace and Transportations markets worldwide. Cinch Connectors employs approximately 1,100 people, with manufacturing operations located in the United States, Mexico, and England. Cinch product engineering and development activities are based in the United States and the UK. Cinch is a unit of the Safran Group, headquartered in Paris, France.
