Molex Incorporated (Lisle, IL) introduces its IllumiMate 1.00 and 1.25 mm pitch wire-to-board connector system, offering today’s flat-panel LED television and PC monitor manufacturers more mating styles, voltage ratings, circuit sizes and locking types than any similar connector system currently on the market. By providing a single system, the IllumiMate family allows set makers to design various models around a single connector type and PCB footprint pattern. Other features include:
· Positive and friction locks for secure latching and space savings with an anti wire-tangling feature and middle friction lock with window for visible mating assurance.
· Polarization guide ribs that protect the pins while preventing improper mating and side-to-side movement. The 1.00 mm pitch version has guide ribs located on the housing ends, while the1.25 mm pitch version has them towards the middle.
· Wide front solder tabs for strong PCB retention.
· Dual-contact terminal design, which offers electrical contact assurance with low insertion force.
