Irvine, Calif. Sabritec has added integrated dual flanges and wash slots to its line of filter connectors. These connectors provide EMI/RFI filtering typically for military and commercial aerospace applications.
Sabritec said a dual flange can be incorporated into the filter connector design for easier assembly. This allows the PC-board or flex circuit to be soldered or fixed directly to the PC tails protruding from the rear of the connector. The wash slots machined into the flange enable superior soldered joints as a result of the void created, which allows even heat transfer during soldering, said the company. This feature also ensures that no damaging flux residue remains after subsequent cleaning processes.
The dual flange also acts as a mechanically strong standoff for the PC-board and reduces any force experienced by the rear PC tails. Self-locking clinch nuts can be fixed to the front flange during final assembly, which will result in speedier assembly to the bulkhead and eliminate the need to purchase additional assembly components. These features can be accommodated in virtually all filter connector variants. Lead-free filter connectors are also available.
Pricing ranges from $175.00 to $575.00. Delivery is 16 weeks or less.
