BOARD CONNECTORS: Narrow-pitch rugged connector for high-vibration applications introduced by Hirose

Hirose Electric USA Inc. in Simi Valley, Calif., is introducing the narrow 1-millimeter pitch, board-to-wire DF50 series rugged connector for high-vibration applications, such as notebook PCs and liquid crystal displays (LCDs).

The RoHS-compliant DF50 connector is designed to reduce PC board mounting area, and offers a positive locking mechanism at the center of the connector that provides a clear, tactile click regardless of the number of repetitive cycles. This latch is designed to prevent uneven locking and incomplete mating. The DF50 connector has a lance structure with a high cable pull force of 10N minimum to prevent contacts from pulling loose during installation.
