TE Connectivity (TE)’s MINI-CON, Underwater Electrical Dry-Mate Connectors

TE Connectivity (TE) SEACON’s well established MINI-CON range was originally developed for the purpose of supplying small diameter, high density and high pressure connectors. Dry mateable, this connector series is manufactured from 316 Stainless Steel as standard, although other materials are available upon request. The inserts are manufactured from Glass Reinforced Epoxy (GRE) with copper alloy, gold plated contacts although glass sealed inserts are also available for high pressure applications. The MINI-CON series also offers optical and hybrid versions along with PBOF, PBOF-HP (High Pressure), reversed miniature inserts and self-wiping miniatures.
