Miniature connector created to allow for more connections

A push-pull connector is designed to offer the smallest circular housing with the highest performance signal and power currently on market in this combination.

The MiniMax from Connectors manufacturer, Alpharetta, GA, provides a 20 signal (0.5A) and four power (5A) connector with 24 mixed contacts in a circular connector housing profile of less than 7mm, or the size of a push pin. Tested to withstand harsh environments, extreme temperatures, and 1,000 hours of salt water spray, the connector also boasts a durability of more than 500 mating cycles.

It is available in either push-pull, breakaway, or screw lock latching systems. The unbreakable keying system withstands over 4 Nm of torque and the over-molded assemblies are designed to withstand 100lb of pull or
breakaway force.

Created to allow for more connections in a smaller space, the connector is designed so that the power and signal don’t interfere with one another. The manufacturer seeks to offer a balance of performance and cost-effectiveness with the product, which because of its 24-contact configuration enables product designers to use fewer connectors. Because fewer cables are needed, the entire device can become more cost-effective and efficient to manufacture, as well as reliable during use. Suitable applications include portable equipment and communications and medical devices.
