LAS VEGAS, NV â€šÃ¢â‚¬â€œ Hirose Electric Co., Ltd. has developed a versatile series of FPC/FFC connectors. Designated the FH12 Series, these connectors are available with contact pitches of 0.5mm and 1.0mm, and are designed for ease of use, space savings and reliability.
The flip-lock actuator requires only 6.9N of force to lock as compared to 39.2N for a comparable FPC/FFC connector. The flip lock also has a mounted PC board height of just 2.0mm, further minimizing space. The FH12 Series connectors are ideal for use in notebook computers, printers, PDAs, digital cameras and many other applications.
Available in top or bottom contact point configurations and horizontal or vertical mount styles, the FH12 connectors use typical 0.3mm thick FPC/FFC and one version can use 0.18mm thick FPC. Insulation resistance is 500M? at 100VDC, with a maximum contact resistance of 50m? at 1mA. Current rating is 0.5A DC, with a voltage rating of 50V AC. Operating temperature ranges from -40â€šÃ‚Â°C to +70â€šÃ‚Â°C.
