A board-to-board right-angled SubMiniature version C (SMC) connector with an integrated locking system has been added by ERNI Electronics to its 1.27mm SMC connector family. The locking system can withstand the normal vibration and shock loads that occur with daily use, and still enable the connector to be disconnected without using any tools.

Both female (Type Q) and male (Type B) connectors are available with SMT termination. The plastic housing is constructed of high temperature-resistant liquid crystal polymer material, which makes the connector suitable for lead free reflow soldering processes. The connectors are available in tape-and-reel packaging for automated pick-and-place assembly.

The SMC Type Q right-angled female and Type B right-angled male connectors with locking system are available in a 12pin configuration. Other pin configurations are available upon request. Special contact lead design guarantees exact placement of the connectors on the PCB, and the coplanarity of the contacts guarantees a secure soldering process. The integrated solid metal SMT mounting clip secures the connector on the PCB for reliable mating and unmating.

Typical applications for this new connector family are additional extender cards for data or software, or PCB connections where interlocking is requested.

ERNI is also offering dual-row IDC Type B female connectors with integrated locking latches. This new connector range is available in 12-, 26-, 50-, 68- and 80pin configurations. The unique design allows simultaneous manufacturing of the insulation body and latches in one step, which results in higher and more consistent quality. The latches are designed to snap into existing notches on the mating male connector, and the insulator also features an alignment guide for the exact positioning of each wire in the ribbon cable.

Prices start at 80 cents each for volume purchases.
