San Marcos, Calif. Sullins Electronics has introduced bi-level edgecard connectors with staggered, dip solder contacts for high-temperature applications.
The edgecard connectors are offered in 6 to 100 contact positions, and provide a single contact current rating of 3 Amps, and a single contact normal force of 0.75 N (75 grams). They also feature an insulation resistance of 5,000 Megaohms minimum at 125 Vdc. A choice of mounting options, and selective or full plating is available.
Recognized under the Component Program of UL and C-UL, the high-temperature connectors feature 0.050-inch (1.27 mm) contact center spacing, and are backwards compatible with 0.100-inch (2.54 mm) center spacing devices to double the number of contacts within the same space.
For high-temperature applications, the connectors are provided with beryllium-copper pins and PPS/PA9T insulators to meet the requirements for operating in the temperature range of -65°C to +150°C. They are also available with phosphor-bronze pins and PPS/PA9T insulators when an operating temperature range of -65°C to +125°C is specified.
Designed for high-density PC boards, the connectors accommodate the interconnection of 0.062-inch ± 0.008-inch daughtercards in communications systems, medical equipment, instrumentation, and automotive R&D. They are most frequently used in backplanes, power supplies, burn-in ovens, and testing system.
Pricing: Average pricing ranges from $0.35 to $0.60 per contact pair in production quantities.
Availability: Delivery is two to three weeks ARO. Samples are available immediately.
