A designer, manufacturer, and distributor of connectors and cable assemblies has unveiled a connector for small devices. The MiniMax is an all-in-one, 20-signal (0.5 A) and 4-power (5 A) connector with 24 mixed contacts. It has a durability of more than 500 mating cycles. It is designed for harsh environments, passing extreme temperature tests and 1000 hours of salt water spray. The new connector will help customers by applying new connections into a smaller space. The connector itself is about the width of a push-pin and can be used in medical devices in which space and cost are concerns. The MiniMax is available in three latching systems: push-pull, breakaway, and screw lock.
