SULLINS’ NEW CANTILEVER EDGECARD CONNECTOR SERIES FEATURES PARTS WITH TEMPERATURE RATINGS OF FROM 125 TO 175 DEGREES C
Board-to-Board Connectors Allow Easy insertion and Robust Connections For 0.062” Multi-Layer PC Boards
San Marcos, CA, October 15, 2007 - Sullins Electronics, Corp. expanded its extensive portfolio of edgecard connectors to include a cantilever edgecard connector series engineered to provide high performance, low cost connections on 0.100” (2.54 mm) or 0.156” (3.96 mm) centerline boards. Designed to mate with the plated fingers of a 0.062” +/- 0.008” daughterboard, parts may be ordered rated to withstand +125, +150, or +175 degrees C continual heat. These double-row connectors are available with either 0.370” or 0.400” wide insulators, and are supplied in right angle, card extender, and straight lead configurations, as well as in a large range of sizes to afford maximum design flexibility and manufacturing efficiencies. Moreover, they boast superior electrical and physical characteristics, and are interchangeable with Sullins’ high-profile devices, without the need to replace motherboards or daughterboards.
NEW CANTILEVER EDGECARD CONNECTORS
The PCB mount series’ cantilever contacts offer a reliable connection in a wide array of high reliability, or high cycle mother-daughterboard applications requiring the connection of one printed circuit board (motherboard) to 0.062” daughterboards. They are ideal for use in communications systems, medical equipment, instrumentation, and automotive R&D. Notably, the high-temperature parts may be confidently specified for such applications as test and burn-in ovens.
The UL94-0 rated devices feature selective gold plating or overall gold and a current rating of 3 A per pin. They are available in 6/12 through 70/140 dual positions on 0.100” centerline spacing, and with 6/12 through 43/86 dual positions on 0.156” centerline spacing. Supplied with a choice of standard thermoplastic polyester, PA9T, beryllium copper, or phosphor bronze contacts, the series features an insulation resistance of 5000 megohms minimum, and a dielectric withstanding voltage of 600 VDC (on 0.100” centerlines) and 1800 VDC (on 0.156 centerlines). Connectors provide consistent insertion/withdrawal from part-to-part, and all-inclusive lot-to-lot with a low 8-ounce average insertion force, and a 1-ounce minimum withdrawal force per contact pair. A comprehensive selection of mounting styles, plating, and keying options, as well as customization is also available.
