Min-E-Con Your Total Microminiature Connection Miniaturization Trends The trend towards miniaturization of electronics equipment which began more than three decades ago has grown dramatically in the 21st century. During much of this time Min-E-Con has been among the leaders in the design and manufacture of high-density Microminiature and Nanominiature connection devices. The proven reliability of our "Fifty-Lok" contact design and it's inherent low insertion forces have made it the preferred choice of many users. Min-E-Con connectors are ideal for applications that require: High contact densities High temperatures (200C+) Extreme shock and vibration Mission Critical / High Reliability Reduced weight and size High speed data transmission About Min-E-Con Founded in 1974 Privately Owned Products built in Irvine California, USA Focused exclusively on Micro and Nano connectors 80% of business is Oil / Down Hole tools 15+ million per year in sales Holden Technologies, Inc.

Daisy Chaining Extended Backpotting Shield Termination Specialty Products and Operations Hybrid Connectors: contain a mix of contact sizes. Nano, micro and 16 AWG contacts in a single micro-d. High voltage Non-Magnetic: Special plating and contacts that are without Ni. Extended Backpotting Double Crimp Shield termination Min-E-Con Quality Min-E-Con’s patented Fifty-Lok system mechanically locks the contacts into the harness. Insulators are molded into the connector shell. Other mfrs glue their insulators. Low insertion force system allows longer contact life. 100% Testing: Every contact in every connector is tested to meet electrical specs. Every contact on a harness is checked for proper routing. Min-E-Con does not use “batch” testing like competitors. Min-E-Con quality is highest in the industry. New Product Development /06 – Super Seal Additional Sealing – “Super Seal” Upgrade (/06) Many down hole tools are exposed to moisture and humidity in the field and during service. This moisture turns into a pressurized steam when exposed to high temperatures down hole. Steam destroys critical epoxy over time and can result in failures. To combat this type of failure, Min-e-con has added the option to place additional hydrophobic seals in between the epoxy and the insulator. This additional sealing prevents moisture and steam from penetrating to a point where shorting or electrical leakage can occur. - Connectors rated for 100% humidity at 15psi with high temp - Hydrophobic seal between insulator and epoxy - Prevents moisture wicking up wires - Prevents steam degradation of epoxy into the insulator area - Added sealing does not change the dimensions of the connector Black Anodized Finish Black Anodized Finish Upgrade (”B” Callout) Hard Coat Anodization is not a plating but rather a transformation of the skin of the aluminum shell. Anodization provides numerous benefits : - Non Magnetic * - Corrosion Resistance - Hardness: Rockwell scale C60-70 - Wear Resistance - High Temp: 200C+ - Low Friction Coefficient for ease of mating - No plating to flake or chip How to Specify Super Seal and Black Anodize Finish MBR-15P6E5-18.0 /06 “B” in second position denotes “BLACK ANODIZED” Finish “/06” suffix denotes 200C rating and Additional Sealing Non- Magnetic - /07 Min-e-con has supplied non magnetic connectors to the oilfield for years. Typically, switching the finish to hard coat anodized and leaving the hardware off was sufficient for most requirements. However, with the increased sensitivity of today’s tools Min-e-con has gone the final step and removed even the Nickel underplate on the contacts. This product is now able to be easily ordered with the simple addition of the /07 part number suffix: Hard Coat Black Anodized Finish Nickel Free Contacts Less Hardware Thank You! Questions?
