JST-ZPDconnectorThe new ZPD Series wire-to-board, double row, crimp style connectors recently introduced by JST Corporation, Waukegan, Illinois, is designed with a secure locking device to ensure connector mating integrity even under adverse conditions. These SMT and through-hole connectors are polarized and have a positive locking feature that provides an audible click with tactile feedback when mated. These 1.5 mm (059”) pitch, top and side entry connectors are ideal for consumer, commercial, medical, and industrial high density, low current, low voltage applications.

The disconnectable, crimp style ZPD Series is available in 10 to 30 circuits in increments of 2 circuits and is rated at 2.0 A AC/DC (using 24 AWG) at 100V AC/DC. These low profile connectors have a mated side-entry height of only 9.2 mm (.362") and a top entry mated height of 9.5 mm (.374”). Wire sizes AWG #28 to #24 are accommodated. Temperature range is – 25oC to +85oC (including temperature rise in applying electrical current). The crimp contact housings are molded of a UL94V-0 rated PBT material. Contacts are copper alloy, copper undercoated, and tin plated. The RoHS compliant SMT headers are molded of a Polyamide UL94V-0 rated material. The top entry headers also feature weld tabs to provide additional retention to the pcb.

Contacts are offered on standard size reels for semi-automatic or fully automatic application tooling while mini-reels are offered for mini-reel hand tools. SMT headers are provided on embossed tape for automatic insertion equipment. For further information, contact: JST Corporation, 1957 Lakeside Drive, Waukegan, IL 60085. Tel: 800-947-1110.
