C&K Components has introduced the CCM01 MK5 series of low-profile smartcard connectors. Compatible with Europay, MasterCard, Visa (EMV) and payment card industry (PCI) standards, the parts are well suited for point-of-sale (POS), mobile point-of-sale (mPOS), transaction and identification applications.
The connectors feature a sealed card-detection switch and robust construction with an operating life of 500 000 cycles. They are available in two low-profile options: a 4 mm plastic cover with 10 N insertion force or 3,2 mm metal cover with 40 N insertion force, both of which require a card extraction force between 1 N and 10 N.
Designed to meet specifications for several different applications, the CCM01 MK5 series is also available with short, recessed contact tails for PCI applications; long contact tails that are exposed to facilitate rework, and long contact tails with metal pegs for heavy duty 40 N insertion force applications. In addition, the connectors are available with a full range of ESD options, including full, partial and non-ESD protection.
