SANTA ANA, Calif., 21 April 2008. ITT Interconnect Solutions in Santa Ana, Calif., has developed high-temperature micro connectors for harsh operating conditions. The MDM Series connectors operate in temperatures as hot as 200 degrees Celsius and can be terminated in daisy-chain configurations within complex electronic instrumentation packages.
Typical applications include geophysical and oil exploration, electronic instrumentation and down-hole mapping. The connectors are made from 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 offer a combination of 1.27- and 2.54-millimeter spacing, and feature a twist pin contact system and crimped gold plated contacts. For more information contact ITT Interconnect online at www.ittcannon.com.
