1 Your Total Microminiature Connection Min-E-ConYour Total Microminiature Connection
2 Miniaturization Trends The trend towards miniaturization of electronics equipment which began more than three decades ago has grown dramatically in the 21st century. During much of this time Min-E-Con has been among the leaders in the design and manufacture of high-density Microminiature and Nanominiature connection devices. The proven reliability of our "Fifty-Lok" contact design and it's inherent low insertion forces have made it the preferred choice of many users. Min-E-Con connectors are ideal for applications that require:High contact densitiesHigh temperatures (200C+)Extreme shock and vibrationMission Critical / High ReliabilityReduced weight and sizeHigh speed data transmission
3 About Min-E-Con Founded in 1974 Privately Owned Products built in Irvine California, USAFocused exclusively on Micro and Nano connectors80% of business is Oil / Down Hole tools15+ million per year in salesHolden Technologies, Inc. Rep for 10+ yearsTrendsetter Electronics – Sole Distributor for 8+ years
5 Micro – D Connectors Mil-83513 24AWG or smaller wire. 22AWG special 3A, 600V rating.2000 mating cycles – LIF contactsLow Profile with chamfered edges (DNBR)Low Profile (DSMR), Original D, Small D. available
9 Nano Connectors Nano are approximately 20% the size of a micro 1Amp, 250V ratingNMR1 – drop in replacement for Tyco/Nanonics (.025 centers)NMR2 – modern nano for new designs (.030 centers)PEEK Flex – custom, quick turn Nano’s
10 Strip Connectors Modular Low Cost Stackable Guide Pin can be positioned to avoid mis-matingJackscrew now available
11 Harnesses Min-E-Con can provide complete custom harnesses Custom harnesses eliminate splicesFewer splices = higher reliabilityMin-E-Con can terminate a wide range of devices within a harness from torroids and filters to specialty connectors from other mfrs.Daisy ChainingExtended BackpottingShield Termination
12 Specialty Products and Operations Hybrid Connectors: contain a mix of contact sizes. Nano, micro and 16 AWG contacts in a single micro-d.High voltageNon-Magnetic: Special plating and contacts that are without Ni.Extended BackpottingDouble CrimpShield termination
13 Min-E-Con QualityMin-E-Con’s patented Fifty-Lok system mechanically locks the contacts into the harness.Insulators are molded into the connector shell. Other mfrs glue their insulators.Low insertion force system allows longer contact life.100% Testing: Every contact in every connector is tested to meet electrical specs.Every contact on a harness is checked for proper routing.Min-E-Con does not use “batch” testing like competitors.Min-E-Con quality is highest in the industry.
15 Additional Sealing – “Super Seal” Upgrade (/06) Many down hole tools are exposed to moisture and humidity in the field and during service. This moisture turns into a pressurized steam when exposed to high temperatures down hole. Steam destroys critical epoxy over time and can result in failures. To combat this type of failure, Min-e-con has added the option to place additional hydrophobic seals in between the epoxy and the insulator. This additional sealing prevents moisture and steam from penetrating to a point where shorting or electrical leakage can occur.- Connectors rated for 100% humidity at 15psi with high temp- Hydrophobic seal between insulator and epoxy- Prevents moisture wicking up wires- Prevents steam degradation of epoxy into the insulator area- Added sealing does not change the dimensions of the connector
16 Black Anodized FinishBlack Anodized Finish Upgrade (”B” Callout) Hard Coat Anodization is not a plating but rather a transformation of the skin of the aluminum shell. Anodization provides numerous benefits :- Non Magnetic *- Corrosion Resistance- Hardness: Rockwell scale C60-70- Wear Resistance- High Temp: 200C+- Low Friction Coefficient for ease of mating- No plating to flake or chip
17 How to Specify Super Seal and Black Anodize Finish MBR-15P6E /06“B” in second position denotes “BLACK ANODIZED” Finish“/06” suffix denotes 200C rating and Additional Sealing
18 Non- Magnetic - /07Min-e-con has supplied non magnetic connectors to the oilfield for years. Typically, switching the finish to hard coat anodized and leaving the hardware off was sufficient for most requirements. However, with the increased sensitivity of today’s tools Min-e-con has gone the final step and removed even the Nickel underplate on the contacts. This product is now able to be easily ordered with the simple addition of the /07 part number suffix:Hard Coat Black Anodized FinishNickel Free ContactsLess Hardware
