Connector System Carries 4 A
Coming in 10- and 12-pin designs, ERNI Electronics’ MiniBridge cable-to-board connector system exhibits a current carrying capacity of 4 A per contact (at 20°C, depending on the cable). The tape-on-reel-packaged male interconnects have SMT terminals with SMT mechanical board anchors, and suitable for assembly in Pb-free relow soldering processes via a LCP plastic housing material. The female devices are terminated via insulation displacement on the cable, suit conductors with AWG 26 (wire or strand), and a friction lock for normal vibration/shock load of stationary applications (black connector design) or a positive lock for high vibration/shock loads of mobile applications (red connector design). The vertical and angled male connectors and female connectors present a 90° and 180° cable outlet, and operate from -55°C to 125°C. Cable options consist of ribbon and discrete wire, as well as cable types including PVC, high-temperature TPE-ET and halogen-free TPE-O solutions. Pricing starts at $1.30 each.
