The Minicon is an extremely compact modular connector, with “push-pull” locking mechanism and with piece parts available as required. The Minicon features up to 12 machined gold plated contacts, with the additional options of horizontal and vertical PCB mount types in the case of the chassis sockets. Non PCB types may be fitted with the required number of solder or crimp contacts which should be ordered separately.
Cable connectors consist of a robust machined alloy housing complete with chuck type cable clamp, and machined alloy cable glands. MSCF12 has 12 female solder contacts, MSCM12 has 12 male solder contacts.
The metal bodied panel housings, with matching metal polarising guides, have ‘back nuts’ for simple, single hole mounting, and, in the case of PCB versions, have PCB location facilities on the plastic spill terminal supports. All panel types are supplied complete with insert and pins.
The series has a rated operating temperature range of -30°C to +80°C, current 3A per contact, and a maximum wire diameter of 0.35mm² solid conductor, 0.24mm² stranded wire. Rated voltage is 960VDC/680VAC, though connectors are not intended for mains applications.
