ec83pi805aFCI enlarged its high density Compact D series to 62 contact connectors in straight receptacle versions to meet the need for higher density connectors and as a complement to its press-fit D-sub range in 78 contacts. Provided with press-fit terminations, this connector helps to avoid the cost and time of an additional wave solder process. It is compatible with any PCB thickness starting from 1.6 mm, an advantage for thick backplanes. The 62 contact receptacle connector occupies the same board space as 37 contact versions, and it is suitable for telecom and industrial applications. Mounting options include threaded inserts, receptacle screw locks and harpoons for grounding purpose. The entire connector range is available in tray packaging.
