18-Position I/O Docking Connector supports 20,000 mating cycles.

January 21, 2015

Designed for cable and docking station applications in multiple markets, 34.1 x 23.6 x 9 mm 3800 Series comes in cable mount or vertical PCB versions and utilizes sequential mating system that, when connected, establishes ground system first to protect vital internal electronics from potential surges. Contact structure provides stable contact resistance and eliminates contact stubbing. Spring contact structure also prevents contact buckling and reduces contact shaving.

Power Connectors feature vertical mating design.

December 3, 2014

Rated up to 4 A and 50 Vac/Vdc, DF65 Series offers wire-to-board solution for electronic device battery connections. Units feature narrow 1.7 mm pitch and 1.8 mm mated height. Positive lock secures socket into header, and produces over 5 N cable pull strength in upper direction, while friction lock ensures complete locking by producing final tactile click. Operating from -35 to +105°C, connectors limit contact resistance to 10 MΩ with insulation resistance of at least 100 MΩ at 100 Vdc. Read More
