MetCon-2 connectors

Suyin has released the MetCon-2 series of hard-metric connectors with a 2mm pitch, conforming to the requirements of IEC 61076-4-101.

The connectors are well-suited for highly complex board-to-backplane and board-to-board/daughterboard connections in CompactPCI and VME64 Extension applications in telecommunications or network systems with data rates up to 1Gbit/s.

There is a wide range of 26 different male and female versions with a total of 178 different types from the standard and right-angle models to inverted versions and all the way to power connectors.

For the majority of them, the contacts are arranged in a maximum of five or eight rows of 2 x 11 signal contacts together with two rows of 2 x 11 ground contacts or EMC/RFI shielding contacts (110/44 to 196/44 contacts).

The contacts are made of a nickel-plated copper alloy. In the press-in area for THT mounting, they are tin-plated, and they are gold-plated in the contact area.

Some of the key performance figures include the insulation resistance of 10G?, the contact resistance of 20m?, the electric strength 750V (Vrms) within a row of contacts or 1,500V (Vrms) between the contact rows, the current carrying capacity of 1.5A (at +20C), the operating temperature range of 55C to + 125C, as well as the reliability rating of 250 mating cycles.

Despite the high number of variants, conformance with the IEC standards ensures compatibility with products from other manufacturers.
