Erni Electronics has made a more compact version of its proven and tested board-on-IDC connector available as part of its 1,27 mm SMC series. The total height has been reduced from 7,3 mm down to 5,0 mm to enable the design of more space-saving cable connectors. In addition, costs were significantly reduced in comparison to a conventional solution using female and male multipoint connectors. The system also avoids detachable points of contact in sensitive applications. In the process, the cable is permanently attached to the connector - already soldered to the PCB - by means of the cable duct, and forms a gas-tight connection with the IDC contacts.
The new connector enables the connection between the PCB and an IDC flat cable to be established using only one connector, and allows the assembly of the flat cable to be performed without the need for customised tools. The connector is designed for fully-automatic SMT assembly, and is equipped with features to take advantage of this, such as a black insulating body, high temperature-resistant thermoplastic housing for SMT reflow soldering, a pre-assembled mounting hood and tape-on-reel packaging.
The new SMT cable connector is available with 12, 26 or 50 pins. To promote reliable processing and a long service life, they also feature additional support by means of the contact underneath the connector, pre-locking of the cable duct and the form-fitting inserted solder clips.
