Connector range variants on display at electronica
EDAC will highlight it’s cardEDGE+ range to visitors at the electronica exhibition in Munich (Nov 11-14). These connectors are available in many variations, offering flexibility to meet the industry drive to add differentiating features in space constrained power supplies, storage devices, navigational equipment, industrial controls and medical equipment.
The connectors are available in 8,000 standard styles and 435,000 custom variations. There is a choice of contact spacing from 1.27 through to 5.08 and with 2 to 188 contacts in single, bridged and dual rows, with or without card guides. Operating temperatures range from -65oC to 105 oC. Also possible is an insertion force of 16oz (4.45N) which ensures high contact reliability and connection retention with contact resistance as low as 10mΩ.
Other options are extra row spacing, multiple PCB footprints, polarising options, extra mountings, additional high temperature insulators, insulator dimensions, multiple insulator colours and extra contact plating to meet customer-specific design requirements for interconnect products. Specialised contact options are available and include PCB through-hole, wirewrap, solder eyelet, extender board tail.
Selecting from then cardEDGE+ and cardEDGE+ Press Fit range of connectors allows the designer to include more options in an interconnect model that is tailored for specific interconnect requirements.
