LISLE, Ill., 1 Sept. 2009. Molex Inc. in Lisle, Ill., is introducing the 1.27-millimeter pitch Picoflex SMT Header rugged connector for rugged systems and high vibration environments. The rugged connectors have positive retention latches to provide a wire-to-board connection with increased retention force.

Picoflex connectors are suitable for high-density applications in shock and vibration environments where space is at a premium and power and signal are required in the military, aerospace, industrial, automotive, medical, and multimedia industries.

The patent-pending Picoflex latch design increases the retention force between the header and receptacle by at least 50 percent compared to Molex's standard friction-lock header. The greater retention force ensures connection in applications where the harness can be placed under a push/pull force or where assembly involves movement of the cable to prevent the header and receptacle from unmating.
