ITT Develops High Temperature Micro Connector Assemblies for Use In Harsh Environments
Micro connector accommodates multiple conductor sizes, precision back molding...
SANTA ANA, Calif. - April 21, 2008 - ITT Interconnect Solutions, a leading global manufacturer and supplier of connectors, interconnects, and cable assemblies, has developed a series of high temperature micro connectors. Designated the MDM Series, the connectors are rated for operation to 200°C and can be terminated in daisy-chain configurations within complex electronic instrumentation packages.
"We've had a number of requests from customers for a connector solution that accommodates larger wire sizes, which in turn requires the use of high temperature back molding materials," said Keith Teichmann, director of marketing for ITT Interconnect Solutions. "The MDM Series connectors feature an integrated termination method to accommodate multiple conductor sizes and precision back molding, allowing us to meet our customers precise needs."
Typical applications for the MDM Series high temperature connectors include geophysical and oil exploration, electronic instrumentation and down-hole mapping.
The MDM Series connectors represent a complete turnkey solution based on the use of specialized high temperature materials such as LCP (liquid crystalline polymer) thermoplastic. A D-subminiature connector based on PPS (polyphenylene sulfide) thermoplastic can also be integrated into the assembly.
The micro connectors accept #22 and #26 AWG (American Wire Gauge) wire sizes and offer a combination of 1.27mm and 2.54mm (0.050" and 0.100") spacing. The MDM Series connectors also feature a twist pin contact system and crimped gold plated contacts.
Lead time for the custom MDM Series micro connectors is from
8 to 10 weeks.
