AVX Corporation extended its well-proven range of board-to-board battery connectors with the addition of the new 9155-250 Series, which — like the rest of the 9155 family — delivers high-reliability electrical and mechanical connectivity in harsh, high-temperature medical, industrial, networking, and consumer electronics applications for up to 5,000 mating cycles. The new 9155-250 Series battery connectors have 3.6mm-high halogen-free, high-temperature, UL94 V-0 nylon insulators, 4.5mm nominal working heights, two to five gold-plated beryllium copper contacts rated at a full 3A each on a 2.5mm pitch, RoHS-compliant, pure-tin-over-nickel PCB tails, and large SMT mounting areas for positive mechanical attachment. They are also end-to-end stackable for broad configuration and application suitability and packaged on tape and reel for automated processing. Ideal applications for the series include a wide range of handheld and portable devices that require docking or cradle charging, such as medical monitoring equipment, disposable cartridges and industrial programming modules, as well as internet appliances that require battery backup and point-of-sale terminals.
The new 9155-250 Series battery connectors are rated for 3A per contact, 125VAC, 5,000-cycle durability in operating temperatures extending from -40°C to +125°C. Standard lead-time for the series is nine weeks.
