ERNI Presents New Design for its Angled SMT D-Sub Connector

11/18/2002 - ERNI has developed a new generation of angled Sub-D connectors according to CECC 75301-802 with SMT termination for the popular I/O-connectors in the TMC series. The new design provides “integrated” coplanarity for SMT terminals and solid SMT mounting clips for fully automatic SMT assembly and reflow soldering. The connectors are available in 9, 15, 25 and 37 pin versions, with the 2 assembly heights: Standard (7.3 mm) and Eurostyle (3.6 mm). Shielded D-Sub versions in SMT are also currently being developed.

In order to achieve the greatest benefit from SMT technology in manufacturing subassemblies, designs should include as many SMT components as possible. SMT technology along with I/O connectors are both very suitable for interconnection of PCBs. ERNI has enhanced its comprehensive SMT portfolio by angled Sub-D connectors with SMT terminals to offer the customers this advantage in manufacturing.

The new D-Sub connectors come with several features and benefits. They are supplied with appropriate SMT packaging for fully automatic pick-and-place with SMT assembly equipment. A black insulator allows simple visual recognition. The integrated pick-and-place surface allow for easy and safe pick with a vacuum pipette. A solid SMT mounting clip provides strain relief for the connector without additional mounting accessories. Position pegs ensure the correct positioning on the PCB before the solder process. The high-temperature plastics used in the manufacturing of the insulator, allow for standard reflow solder processes.

ERNI Elektroapparate GmbH, a German member company of the international ERNI Holding Group, was established in1956. At Adelberg (near Göppingen) and in Chester, Virginia (USA), ERNI develops and produces a wide range of connectors for backplane and printed circuit board applications, which was even further expanded by the takeover of Maxconn. In the system technology sector, customer-specific printed circuit board systems and backplanes were developed, which are produced in backplane shops in Germany, USA and Korea. In the financial year 2001 ERNI achieved a turnover of more than Euro 150 million with more than 750 employees. ERNI is globally active and has its own branches in all important industrial regions. The products are also sold via a network of representatives and leading distributors such as Arrow and RS.
