MDM_Wired_Micro_D_83513-Style_300If you have products that are working in extreme environments but struggle to find connectors that can withstand very high temperatures, then look no further…

Introducing ITT Cannon’s Ultra High-Temp Micro-MDM Connectors.

The Ultra High Temp Micro-MDM series is qualification tested to withstand 230º C continuous operating temperature for 500 hours and meets the harsh requirements of the Oil and Gas exploration industries.

The connector is designated by an F300 modification code and uses high performance micro twist pin contacts, special insulating materials and high temperature wire.

For anyone that has no way to avoid high temperatures, from either the product itself or by the environment it operates in, these connectors are a very handy solution.

The only question now is what cable / wire to use? This is simple the choice is either Silicone or PTFE.

My preference is always Silicone but that’s just my personal choice. Remember, when designing products – so long as the individual components meet the minimum specification requirements – the rest is down to personal choice.

You can read the full info online.

As always if you are unsure or need more advised just speak to your preferred cable assembly company the good ones will be very knowledgeable and ready to help!
