Cinch Connectivity Solutions Announces New Dura-Con High Temperature Micro-D Connector Expansion

24 August 2018

Cinch Connectivity Solutions, a Bel group company and provider of reliable connectivity solutions, announces an expansion to the Dura-Con High Temperature Micro-D rectangular connector series. These new connectors provide improved reliability for “down-hole” sensory instrumentation that monitors telemetry, pressure, temperature and vibration in many oil and gas applications.

Cinch Connectivity Solutions’ Dura-Con Micro-D High Temperature connectors allow designers of compact Source: Cinch Connectivity SolutionsSource: Cinch Connectivity Solutionselectro-mechanical equipment to operate in extremely high vibration conditions at elevated temperatures of 175° C. This results in extended mean time between failure (MTBF) in the harsh environment it functions, which saves operators significantly in equipment downtime.

The dielectric insulation material used in the Dura-Con Micro-D High Temperature connectors is made of high temperature Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP), which has a much higher melting and glass transition point than materials used in standard offerings. This increases the long-term operating temperature from a standard 125° C to 175° C. Also, the connector’s insulator has a special design feature that prevents shorts in the high vibration conditions expected in “down hole” applications.
