ITT Cannon High Temp Micro-D Series Connectors

ITT Cannon High Temp Micro-D Series Connectors



RUGGED MICRO-D FOR USE IN EXTREME TEMPERATURES

With the increasing demand for compact, ruggedized interconnect solutions that can withstand temperatures up to 200° C, ITT’s Cannon brand continues to lead the industry with high reliability products customized for applications from satellites to down hole analyzers. The High Temperature Micro D-Subminiature Series has been engineered with a strong yet lightweight aluminum shell and micro twist pin contact system. With an increased operating temperature up to +200° C (+392°F) ITT Cannon’s High Temp Micro-D Series is ideal for the harsh environments of space, down hole drilling and missile systems. Mil spec part numbers begin M83513; ITT Cannon part numbers begin MDM. For full details on ITT Cannon High Temp MDM series MIL-DTL-83513 micro-D connectors, please see product specifications below.

FEATURES

ITT CANNON HIGH TEMP MICRO-D SERIES FEATURES

  • High-Strength, Light-Weight Aluminum Shells
    These connectors use aircraft/space grade aluminum shells that are capable of withstanding the rigors of space, including ballistic launching into space and the environmental extremes of space.

  • Extremely Small Interconnect
    Micro-D connectors are designed with contacts on .050" (1.27) centers and size 24 contacts, providing ultra-high density connectors in half the space typically needed for standard D-Subminiature connectors. These connectors are typically used where small space and lightweight are of primary concern.

  • Unique Twist Pin and Solid Tube Socket
    Micro-D’s use ITT Industries twist pins that are constructed by welding seven wires together to form a strong rounded tip. Then, slightly twist the wires to form a birdcage before crimping them into the body of the pin contact. Micro-D’s differ from standard D-Subminiature connectors in that the pin contacts are protectively housed in the insulator and the solid tube socket contacts are visibly extended from the socket insulator. This unique design protects the twist pin from damage. The pin contact bird cage gets compressed, elongates and twists inside the smaller diameter of the solid tube socket providing excellent wiping action and extremely low contact bounce, even under high vibration.

  • Total Environmental-Sealing Silicone Interfacial Seals and Epoxy-Potted Contacts
    The silicone interfacial seal prevents the entrance of environmental contaminants, humidity and moisture from entering the contact area when mated. The wire side of the connectors are potted with high quality epoxy that encapsulates the wire side of the connector and locks the contacts into the insulator, preventing any contact pullout.

  • Pre-wired Connectors for Fast, Easy Assembly
    Micro-D connectors are available in three basic styles: solder, printed circuit and the popular pre-wired connector version. This version comes in a wide variety of lengths from short .500” (12.70) solid 25#AWG wires up to 72” (3048.0) Teflon-insulated, stranded 26 AWG wires that can be trimmed down to suit your application and prevents the tedious process of having to solder many fine wires onto the tightly spaced terminals.
