The 1.0mm machined contact variant also and DIN EN 61076-2-104. Insulation resistance is over 109 offered in the 3, 4 and 5 way supports a wide range of wire Ω. Available in a cream-white color, the connectors’ compact diameters, from 0.05mm to 1.00mm (AWG30 to AWG18). A housings are made of polypropylene (PP). 1.00mm contact suitable for a cable diameter of 10mm is also Belden available to customers. All D-coded 4-way and A-coded 4 and 5 www.belden.com way arrangements have a 360 degree screen termination, which provide complete protection and shielding against EMI/EMC when coupled with the all-metal shell. Flexible battery-connector solution Hypertac www.hypertac.com with cable connection For all applications that require a separable, miniaturized, safe, 1-row horizontal design socket connector reliable and particularly flexible connection between electronic equipment and a battery, Suyin now offers an ultra-low-profile with a 1.27mm pitch battery plug-and-socket combination The 1.27 mm pitch socket connector series from Fisher that can be varied to meet customer- Elektronik, “BLM” has been upgraded into a 1-row horizontal specific needs. With this solution, the design. As in the case of the entire BLM series, BLM SMD 3 060087GS four-position plug can be is suitable for the pin header placed at any suitable position on the SLV (0.4 mm square) or SLM board and mounted using through-hole (0.3 mm square). It is available technology (THT), and the 060088HS in pole numbers from 2 to 20. socket is equipped with a flexible cable that can be adapted The fork contacts of the BLM to match nearly any customer requirements by varying the 3 SMD are refined with gold length along with all other specifications (cross section, color, or tin (pure tin) on the surface shielding, etc.). The compact overall dimensions for the female and are accordingly available connector (without the cable) and male connector when mated as socket connectors as well. The contact material of the are 12.6x8.75x2mm. The long-lasting blade contacts with a socket connector is made of a CuSn alloy. Safe operation is pitch of 1.8 mm can conduct 12 VDC / 5 A per pin, and the high guaranteed within a temperature range of -40 to +163°C. As level of mating reliability is tested at the factory at 500 +/– 50 with the previous design, the insulating body is made of a mating cycles per hour. Other key technical characteristics that high temperature-resistant plastic (flammability class: UL94 this completely halogen-free battery connector solution offers V-0), thus making the socket connector suitable for the lead- include the extremely low contact resistance of 30 mΩ (initial), free, reflow soldering method. The materials used comply the excellent insulation resistance of 1000 MΩ as well as the with EU Directive 2002/95/EC (RoHS) and the requirements wide range of operating temperatures, which extends from –40 of Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006 (REACH). to +105 °C.
