Back flip FPC/FFC connector from Hirose
Hirose has expanded its back flip FPC/FFC connector offering to include a 0.5 mm pitch version that offers dual contact functionality to simplify flex routing.
The space-saving TF07V Series has a height of only 2.1 mm, making it ideal for consumer electronics, industrial robotics, and medical applications that require connectivity solutions combining miniaturisation and ruggedisation.
In addition to higher reliability, the top and bottom contact design offers board design flexibility and ease of assembly while the backflip design greatly increases the FPC/FFC retention in the vertical direction.
Compared to front flip connectors, the TF07V Series back flip connector offers a higher retention force and exceptional protection during installation. With the backflip design, the TF07V Series is delivered with the actuator open. Mating is completed in two simple steps of FPC/FFC insertion and closing the actuator.
“The TF07V Series back flip FPC/FFC connector offers space-savings that enable a reduction in size of electronic devices without sacrificing performance and durability,” said Pete Lais, Assistant Vice President of Product Management for Hirose Electric Americas. “The TF07V Series design all but eliminates dust from causing contact failure. The backflip design is impervious to debris, ensuring the prevention of any unexpected actuator openings after installation.”
The TF07V Series is available in 30, 40, 50 and 60 positions.
