Lane Electronics has made available a mass termination crimp connector system designed to satisfy a wide range of medical, military and industrial applications. According to Lane Electronics, the connector system is designed to terminate all contacts in a single press stroke which not only saves time but also means an accurate and reliable connection. Other key benefits of CRIMPFLEX include the availability of a wide product range on short lead times and best-in-class quality.
Manufactured by Nicomatic, the patented CRIMPFLEX connector system is designed to ensure excellent mechanical retention and electrical contact by piercing the conductor in 6 points. The contacts are available in two standard pitch sizes, 1.27mm and 2.54mm, in male, male solder tab and female versions to meet all market needs. Female contacts are selective gold or tin plated.
It is compatible with all types of flexible circuits with thicknesses that range from 75µ to 350µ (0.003 to 0.014").
CRIMPFLEX connectors can pierce all kinds of supports including polyester, FR4, PTFE and polyimide and can withstand voltages up to 1,100Vrms. Maximum continuous current rating per contact is 3A (AC) or 5A (DC)
