CONNECTORS: Single-row micro connectors for switching wires from an I/O to circuit board introduced by Omnetics

Omnetics Connector Corp. in Minneapolis is introducing PS1 and SSB series of single-row micro connectors for switching wires from an I/O connector to the printed circuit board. The connectors offer micro latch and route wires from the back of an I/O connector to the printed circuit board. The Omnetics latching system uses a nickel-plated beryllium copper latch that engages automatically with an audible click, and disconnects at the press of a finger without requiring tools.

The leads on the PS1 connector are available in surface-mount and through-hole solder versions. The mating SSB connector has optional solder cups or color-coded wire, and attaches to the back of standard I/O connectors. The connectors use the Omnetics flex pin contact system, with contacts at a 1.27-millimeter pitch to keep use of space on the board to a minimum. The connectors have gold-plated contacts of the same quality as MIL-DTL-83513 Micro-D connectors. The contacts are spaced at a compact 1.27-mm pitch, reducing the need for large amounts of board space. These micro connectors can carry as much power as 3 amps per contact.
