There are many interesting applications for flexible printed circuits and flat-flex cables, but there’s one problem they all have in common: FFCs and FPCs need a reliable connector base. Wuerth Elektronik eiSos has now extended its family of WR-FPC products by a back-lock dual-contact ZIF plug-in connector.
The simple-to-use and tool-free locking concept ensures strong holding forces. Only 1 mm thick, the extremely flat plug-in connector has contacts on its top and bottom surfaces for even more flexibility in the use of flexible printed circuits and flat-flex cables.
The spacing pitch is 0.5 mm, and the connector is supplied in all standard pole numbers from 6 to 28, including a 17-pole version. The plug-in connector has a maximum ampacity of 0.5 A and is capable of withstanding voltages of up to 50 V alternating current. It can be operated at temperatures ranging from -40°C to +105°C.
All products are directly available from stock. Free-of-charge samples of the new plug-in connectors are available on request.
