Low-profile 1.2mm pitch wire-to-board connector system offers easy termination

GradConn’s new 1.2mm pitch wire to board range offers low profile mated height of 1.45mm above the PCB and its mating orientation makes it ideal for applications where space is at a premium.

Available in 2 – 6 positions, horizontal PCB headers are polarised to avoid mis-mating, housings and headers are plugged together from above, which is easier for operators and allows mating in applications where a traditional end-to-end mating may not fit. Examples of applications are GPS, DVD players and notebook, cell phones, linear and track SSL lighting.

To prevent mis-mating, the housing polarising ‘rib’ allows mating with header only in the correct orientation. The mating connectors lock together with an audible click, which aids assembly.

Gold-plated contacts are rated at 1.5A for mating headers and sockets terminated with 28AWG diameter discrete wire. WB06-DA has an operating temperature range of -25C to 85C and is tape and reel packaged. Custom cable assemblies are also available.
