Good Things Do come in
The nanominiature connector (a.k.a. “NANO”)
is a little known connector size that has been around for
more than 25 years. It was typically used in the high-end
military/defense market. The original design was based loosely
around the more familiar microminiature (a.k.a. “Micro”)
connector line. The Micro connector is designed with .050”
contact centers (pitch) whereas the NANO has .025”
centers. The 2 to 1 ratio in contact pitch equates to a
4 to 1 ratio in total space required. The NANO requires
only 25% of the space that is typically needed for a Micro
connector with the same number of contacts. The electronics
world is getting smaller and smaller so this feature becomes
The MIN-E-CON NANO
MIN-E-CON has developed a “ruggedized” NANO
for use in commercial applications in addition to the military
market. It has a “scoop proof” design which
means both the pin and socket contact are protected while
not mated. There are two contact pitch designs available,
the .025” pitch and our exclusive .030” pitch.
The .025” is designed to mate with most of the “other”
manufacturers of NANO connectors (consult your area MIN-E-CON
representative to determine intermateability by manufacturer).
|The .030” pitch was developed as
a non-hermetic mate to a hermetic military connector. Using
this .030” technology together with our association
with the U.S. Government (MIN-E-CON is one of only a handful
of manufacturers qualified by the U.S. Department of Defense
to supply connectors for military and defense applications)
a commercially available version was developed.
MIN-E-CON offers several standard designs in both the .025”
and .030” pitch ranging from stainless steel metal
shell rectangular and circular connectors to all plastic
rectangular and strip connectors. The rectangular series
is available in a PCB mount in addition to a cable mount.
The size of wire used is typically 30 to 32 AWG stranded
and solid wires. Other types of wire can be used once compatibility
has been established. We also offer a “retractable”
jackscrew hardware design on our metal shell rectangular
line that allows for full and complete connector mating
before securing hardware. This eliminates any connector/contact
damage caused by “cross-mating”.
Consult your area MIN-E-CON representative for any additional
information you may need on the NANO connector. As always,
custom connector configurations are welcomed.
