D-Sub connectors

FCI has expanded its D-Sub series with the new Economy Range of connectors that addresses the growing number of applications where fewer mating cycles are required, such as STBs, control devices and energy meters.

The new Economy Range is designed for less demanding applications, where high mating and unmating cycles are not needed.

The traditional Delta D range is widely recognized as being robust, with high plating performance and 500 mating cycles. These connectors are specified for telecommunication and medical markets.

The new solder-to-board Economy Range is designed to handle a minimum of 50 mating and unmating cycles, making it suitable for use in environments such as PCB and indoor applications with an operating temperature of -20C to +105C.

The economical D-Sub series is available in standard density from nine to 37 positions, in straight and right-angle versions. Right-angle versions are available in two standard footprints: U.S. footprint of 2.84mm with a connector height of 6.3mm and European footprint of 2.54mm with a connector height of 7.2mm.

In addition, the new connector range can generate 20 percent to 30 percent in savings compared with the traditional D-Sub product ranges. Design-ins are simplified by 24-hour sample shipment, online drawings and specifications, and short lead times.

FCI's full line of D-Sub connectors is available on the web, including signal and mixed power solutions.
