ERNI Electronics has introduced a new connector to its comprehensive range of D-Sub connectors with SMT, THR, press-fit and soldering termination. The latest addition to the product family is a right angled D-sub connector with press-fit technology, which can be screwed to the PCB with M3 or 4#40 UNC threads after press fitting. In comparison to standard press-fit clips, this makes the attachment even more secure. This is particularly important in applications where the PCB is subjected to additional force due to the use of larger and heavier cable housings.
Press-fit technology has certain processing advantages when used on backplanes and PCBs that cannot be reflow soldered, or in cases where large quantities of other press-fit connectors such as DIN 41612/IEC 60603-2 or 2.0mm HM connectors are being used on the same PCB. However, press-fit technology is also an effective solution in situations where connectors’ high heat capacity causes soldering problems (small components overheat). Press-fit technology is also characterized by being more reliable than soldering technology.
The new right angled robust D-Sub press-fit connector is already available with a standard assembly height of 7.3 mm, and will shortly be followed by a Eurostyle version with an assembly height of 3.6 mm. The connectors are available with 9, 12, 25 or 37 pins. The male contacts are gold-plated, and the female contacts are tin-plated. The family of connectors complies with the IEC 807-3 and DIN 41652 standards, and is suitable for lead-free soldering (RoHS compliant).
The integrated locking accessories ("jack screws") provide a low-impedance ground connection, and also reliably anchor the cable housing to the connector. Versions are available with threads (M3 or 4#40 UNC) and threaded bolts (M3 or 4#40 UNC). Further details on the comprehensive range of D-Sub products from ERNI Electronics are available in a product catalogue that is available for download from the Web site: http://www.erni.com/DB/PDF/...
Prices begin at $1.00 for the male or female 9-pin version of the new D-Sub press-fit connector.
