Micro-Mini(TM) "Ratchet" connectors feature contact inserts that maintain side load strength, which exceeds current standards by five times. The vibration-resistant ratchet coupler design prevents loosening in severe, high-vibration applications while the epoxy-coated coupler passes the 500-hour salt-spray test per Mil-Std-202F for corrosion resistance. The watertight seal meets IP-67 and NEMA-6P ratings, and the easy-stripping PVC-jacketed cable and molded-to-cable connector junction are bonded for connector-to-cable reliability.
