ERNI Unveils New Angled D-Sub Pressfit Connectors

11/17/2003 - Today’s printed circuit board designs demand flexible and cost-effective connector concepts. Thanks to modular design, ERNI offers complete product lines covering all connection methods at extremely attractive prices. In the framework of this portfolio concept, ERNI has launched a new design for angled D-Sub connectors in pressfit technology. And once again the new design improves functionality. Modularity permits any number of low-cost variations to be generated.

The new D-Sub connectors for pressfit technology belong to a complete product family and supplement the SMT and THR technology variants. The pressfit version is intended for applications in which, for example, automated SMT assembly is not possible, subsequent placement of the connector is required, or connectors are pre-mounted in the housing and the board is pressed in.

Robust design ensures reliable processing - the insertion forces are absorbed by the form-fitting contacts in the insulating body. The bolt anchoring of the new D-Sub connectors ensures rugged stability and solves the problem of screws and nuts turning when cable housing is used.

The new line of D-Sub pressfit connectors are available with 9, 15, 25 and 37 pins in both standard (7.3 mm) and Eurostyle (3.6 mm) mounting heights. Fully automatic processing is also possible with tray and T&R supply. The insulating body is made of high-temperature resistant thermoplastics. The new D-Sub connector generation conforms to the mandatory lead-free surface standard scheduled to be effective July 2006.
