ERNI's LPV connector family complies with IEC 60603-13 (DIN 41651) and offers a comprehensive spectrum of board-to-cable connection alternatives with a 2.54-mm pitch. The reliable IDC technology that's employed ensures gas-tight and corrosion-resistant contact with a consistently low contact resistance throughout the product's service life. An integrated polarizing key in the middle of the connector housing prevents incorrect mating and damaged contacts. Optional locking latches secure the connection by providing additional protection against inadvertent release caused by strain from vibrations and shock loads. When the locking latch is opened, the female connectors are lifted out of the contact evenly in order to prevent damage.
The female connector is designed to be used with 1.27-mm ribbon cables. The IDC contacts cut through the insulation material, so it's not necessary to strip off the insulation. The included strain relief clamps make it possible to lead cables out at an angle of 90 or 180 degrees to the plug connector. The male connectors are available with press-fit, wave-soldering, and through-hole-reflow termination. Besides the standard overall 17-mm height, low-profile, 9.4-mm versions available. Ten housing sizes are available for both male and female connectors in pin configurations with 10, 14, 16, 20, 26, 34, 40, 50, 60 or 64 positions. Prices start at $ 0.70 for a ten-position female connector. Further information is available at www.erni.com.
