I-PEX Connectors is adding two new connectors to the versatile EVAFLEX brand 5-SE-G series. These connectors are designed with an auto-locking feature to prevent the FFC/FPC from disengagement, making them ideal for high shock and vibration environments, such as automotive and office equipment.
There are two versions of this connector: the EVAFLEX 5-SE-GHT is a horizontal mating type and the EVAFLEX 5-SE-GVT is a vertical mating type. Both connectors are 0.5 mm pitch and come in pin counts from 10-60.
The unique auto-locking feature makes insertion and withdrawal simple with the use of a lock release button – just press to release. This same feature ensures that the connection stays put, helping to increase productivity. The connectors were also designed for high-speed transmission (4+ Gbps), as well as high temperature (~125 degrees C) environments for various automotive applications.
The same terminal FFC pattern can be installed using the vertical or horizontal types of this connector, depending on the placement of the PCB.
