Erni Electronics launched a new dual-row
SMT connector family with 0.8mm pitch, designed with reliable
double-sided spring contact for space limited applications. The 50-pin
male version of the dual-row MicroCon series connectors measure only
24.2x4.7mm with different heights and reinforced side walls.
Secure mating is ensured by coding and blind mate guide alignments,
providing an increased locking range. To support various PCB
applications, parallel (Mezzanine), orthogonal (90 °) and coplanar
configurations are available. With different heights for the male and
female connectors board-to-board distances from 5 to 20mm can be
realized for Mezzanine applications.
Despite the miniaturization the new connectors offer a high mating
tolerance with allowed misalignment tolerances of longitudinal and
transverse axes of ± 0.7mm. The allowed angular inclination tolerance is
specified with ± 4 degree. The manufacturer provides IDC ribbon cable
connections for interconnections over longer distances. The IDC female
connectors provide interlocking with snap-on feature and support AWG 34.
The cable pitch is 0.4mm based on the 2-row connector configuration.
The female cable connector and the male connector provide a vibration
resistant mating. The robust Class 1 connectors are specified for >
500 mating cycles while the current capacity per contact is up to 0.5A
