A new series 6808 - High Current, Low Profile FPC Connector with unmatched physical and performance characteristics.
Ideal for use in battery, power supply, robotics, and small applications of electric motor, reliable and versatile 6808 series are FPC connector from Kyocera Connector Products is the industry's only ultraminiature, flip-lock FPC Bilateral contacts & nominal power 4A.
Fountain Inn, South Carolina (November 14, 2016) - AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer and supplier of passive components and connectivity solutions, as well as the only authorized supplier of Kyocera electronic devices in North and South America and Europe, announces the high current, low profile 6808 series right angle FPC connector from Kyocera Connector Products. Suitable for both connecting a FPC and battery in all applications, including: batteries, power supplies, robotics and small electronic motors, 6808 series the industry's first - and currently only - ultraminiature (0.5 mm pitch) flip-lock FPC connector with 4A rated power and two-sided, upper and lower contacts, which effectively cushion the insertion of FPC and PCB layout constraints. Thanks to the six power pins, capable of delivering up to 4A, and one of the contacts of the signal connector, capable of transmitting 0.5 A, 6808 series are FPC connectors can also be used as connectors signal seven contacts, and come in combination with a notched FPC to prevent contact misalignment and increase resistance to shock and vibration.
"Our high current, low profile 6808 series are FPC connectors provide unmatched physical and performance characteristics and are robust as they are versatile, providing electronics design engineers with high contact reliability and impressive resistance to the tensile forces and maximum layout flexibility and employment for both sides of the FPC and battery connection, "said Nick Bogovich, marketing Manager and systems product to Kyocera Connector products at AVX.
Having a zero insertion force (ZIF) flip lock design with cable connections, contacts of copper alloy and temperature resistant plastic insulators, connectors 6808 series small measure 7.3 mm x 5.3 mm x 1.5 mm (l x W x h) and demonstrate a minimal FPC holding force of 15 Newtons. Rated for 50VDC, operating temperatures spanning -40 ° C to + 85 ° C and 10 cycles compounds, series is also RoHS compliant, halogen-free, and comes in reels of 5000 pieces per reel. Current lead-time for the series is 12 weeks.
