ERNI Electronics has extended its SMC connector family in a 1,27 mm pitch with hot-swappable variants. These connector versions feature late-mate contacts to permit reliable system swapping during operation and/or with applied electric voltage in industrial applications or in cars.
With hot swapping/hot plugging, the electronics are reliably protected by following a defined sequence of signal, ground or power contacts during mating and unmating of the connector. Thus, when mating for example, it is ensured that a reliable ground connection is established first, before connecting the data lines (first mate – last break). Angled male connectors of the two-row connector can be mounted at any position with late-mate contacts, providing flexibility for individual contact layouts.
In addition to the hot-swap capability, the SMC connectors feature a proven dual-beam female contact system for reliable and secure connection, even under difficult industrial conditions. The connectors permit efficient and compact board-to-board and wire-to-board connections and are available as versions with 12 to 80 pins. Besides the angled SMT male connectors with late-mate contacts, individual contact loading (full or partial) is also possible.
