Stac64™ Single, Multipocket and Hybrid Header System
To address the growing electronic device requirements within today's vehicles, Molex has developed a modular 0.64, 1.50 and 2.80mm terminal header system. The Stac64 connection system allows OEM and device manufacturers greater design flexibility to support both low-level signal requirements as well as power applications up to 30.0A. The Stac64 system allows automotive manufacturers to use header assemblies as stand-alone components, to gang multiple headers together to support a large range of signal and power needs for devices and modules.
The standard product line based on the 0.64mm pitch terminal includes: 8-, 12-, 16- and 20-circuit connectors in both vertical and right-angle headers supporting low-level signal requirements. In addition, 10- and 14-circuit power pocket versions, supporting power applications for 1.50 and 2.80mm pitch terminal systems, are available in vertical and right-angle configurations. This Stac64 is a standard product system based on USCAR-2 Class II mechanical and electrical performance characteristics for unsealed connector applications. The connectors mate to existing wire-harness connectors designed to the USCAR/EWCAP industry footprints.
The Stac64 standard product offering is tooled at high cavitation and is fully validated at the single-pocket level. This greatly reduces time-to-market by eliminating the need for additional tooling.
Features and benefits include:
|Stackable connection system of readily available PCB headers
||Reduced time-to-market: engineering and validation times reduced significantly
|The header and receptacle housings are molded in standard USCAR color schemes for additional polarizations
||No tooling necessary to produce custom multi-bay headers
|Pre-assembled, linear Mylar PC tail alignment strip for right angle headers
||Matches harness connector color coding scheme for visual aid in assembly
|Modular-housing design with standard dovetail features molded into the housings
||Reduces PCB packaging complexity
Provides space savings
|PCB alignment posts
||Allows headers to be ganged together in large assemblies to meet growing terminal quantity requirements
|PCB standoffs molded into housings
||Ensure all terminals are properly aligned into PCB board through-holes during assembly
Retain header to PCB during assembly and solder processing
|High temperature thermoplastic housing
||Withstand infra red (IR) and wave lead-free solder processing per SMES-152 Molex specification
|Pre-assembled TPA to receptacle housing shipped as single assembly
||Applied assembly labor and cost savings
