Connector provides innovative Z-axis board-to-board solution

14 August 2002 Interconnection

Molex's SliderZ board-to-board connector helps minimise assembly, service, and retrofit costs. When servicing, upgrading and executing plug-in expansions on printed circuit boards, previous board-to-board solutions required the use of ribbon cable and several connectors linking the two boards together. The SliderZ connector, with its 1,27 mm pitch and 'slide' mating action, allows the user to mate or remove one PCB in the Z-axis while leaving the other PCB's undisturbed. Available in 10 through 60 select circuit sizes, this versatile connector can be used in a wide range of applications, including consumer electronics. The SliderZ connector is rated for up to 1000 mating cycles, for applications requiring frequent service.

The hermaphroditic design means the same connector is used in mating, which means only one part number needs to be ordered and inventoried. Guide rails and generous lead-ins help make installation and board-to-board mating easy.

Featuring glass-filled polyester housings, the connectors are UL 94 V-0 approved and have an operating temperature of -40 to 85°C. With current ratings of 1,5 A for the 10 circuit connectors and 1,25 A for the 20 through 60-circuit connectors, the SliderZ connector has a voltage rating of 30 V a.c. rms (42 V peak). Select gold plated contacts improve conductivity and reduce required insertion forces. Prominent finger pulls allow for ergonomic unmating and minimise stress to the board and connector.
