6288 Series

AVX Corp. has the 6288 series of secure lock zero insertion force (ZIF) connectors that provide enhanced robustness and dependability for applications that require high reliability.

The rugged connector series features a shaped cable construction that guarantees correct alignment and eliminates failures due to misalignment. The 6288 series' one-touch flip lock provides audible and tactile "click" feedback that facilitates ease-of-assembly, virtually eliminates production process failures and prevents accidental removal of the cable in the field.

The moldings in the connector accept FFC/FPC cable and lock shapes to prevent accidental removal of the cable and incorrect insertions.

The connectors are designed for automotive applications, including audio/visual devices, DVD and satellite navigation screens, digital speedometers, tachometers and rear view mirror displays. The connectors can also be found in medical electronic applications such as handheld blood sugar monitors and LCD screens.

"Our rugged ZIF connector features a unique design that includes a secure locking mechanism that ensures safe and reliable operation in harsh environments that include severe vibration," said Andy Kotas, marketing manager at AVX.

The 6288 series connectors are available in 6 to 60 positions with a standard 0.5mm pitch and an operating temperature range between -40C to +105C. The standard 0.5mm pitch contacts feature a gold flash finish for higher reliability soldering. Technical drawings of the FFC/FPC shape are also available upon request.
