Omnetics launched a single row version of its Nano-Miniature Bi-Lobe 0.025” pitch connector family, designed to deliver ultra-reliable signal contact direct from the PCB into the connector. With a profile of only 0.115” high, these connectors incorporate the company’s proven Flex Pin contact and are the lowest profile metal-shelled connector available on the market. The connectors are available in 9-51 pin count versions, are housed in a robust metal shell and feature a metal jackscrew for locking and un-mating. They are polarised to prevent mis-mating. They withstand a shock of 100G in each axis and passed a vibration exposure from 10 Hz to 2,000 Hz to 10 Hz at 20G amplitude in each axis – in accordance with Mil-Std-32139. Wire to wire and surface mount versions are available. Pricing depends on termination style, but in volume the price of the single row Bi-lobe connectors is a little over $ 2.00 per contact. Leadtime is 6 to 8 weeks.
