Cinch Connectivity Solutions Announces Expanded Dura-Con Hermetic Micro-D Connector Series

Solutions to deliver high performance and signal integrity

Lombard, IL [September 12, 2018] Cinch Connectivity Solutions, a Bel group company, (NASDAQ: BELFA and BELFB) and global leader in delivering reliable connectivity solutions, announces the Dura-Con Hermetic Micro-D Connector Hardware series. This new series compliments the Dura-Con Hermetic Micro-D product line with several new passivated stainless steel jackposts with sizes for varying panel thicknesses of 0.8 mm, 1.2 mm, 1.6 mm and 2.4 mm.

Cinch Dura-Con Micro-D Hermetic connectors are designed for applications where a connection is required across two separate gas tight environments. The Cinch proprietary hermetic compound hermetically seals the connector to a leak rate of less than 1 x 10-8 cc/sec He across a 1 atm pressure differential. Dura-Con is the ideal connector for applications where weight and size must be kept to a minimum while maintaining maximum reliability. The Dura- Con Hermetic Micro-D connector series reliability is maximized with the unique twist pin wire form contact which provides seven discreet points of contact with the mating socket.

Dura-Con Micro-D connectors are one of the most widely used high density connectors and are popular in many Military, Oil & Gas, and Aerospace applications for their reliability and durability. All Dura-Con connectors are tested to meet MIL-DTL-83513 requirements.
