New Micro Rugged Floating Contact System Extends Mating Tolerances
Samtec has introduced a new micro rugged pitch interconnect ideal for multiple-connector, Board-to-board applications facing potential misalignment issues. With a floating contact system that provides 0,5mm of float in the X and Y directions, the connectors can absorb location errors during mounting on the PCB or due to gaps created when the PCBs are secured after the connectors are mated.
Micro Rugged Floating Contact System Terminals (FT5 Series) and Sockets (FS5 Series) from Samtec are a highly reliable, high performance, surface mount system available with 30 or 60 contacts (15 or 30 per row) on a narrow 0,5mm (.01979") pitch.
The socket has a standard 4mm body height while the terminal is available in 1mm or 3mm body heights for a choice of 5mm or 7mm overall mated heights. A through-hole weld tab for further stability in rugged or harsh environments is standard. Additional lead counts, stack heights, and a surface mount weld tab are also available. The terminal is also offered in a right angle design for micro backplane applications.
Price begins at $ .04 per pin in production quantities.
