16-07-2015 | Hirose | Connectors, Switches & EMECH

Hirose has introduced the DF52 Series, a miniature 0.8mm pitch wire-to-board connector that delivers up to 2.5A per contact. With a height of only 1.75mm and a depth of just 4.1mm, the tiny wire-to-board connector provides significant PCB space savings. The low-profile DF52 Series combines a compact design with a thick housing structure, ensuring high reliability and ruggedness in consumer, gaming, imaging, security and wearable applications. The DF52 Series utilizes robust box-shaped crimp terminals that prevent snaring or breakage and stabilize the contact. The header terminals are C-shaped with two points of contact on the top and bottom. Offering low contact resistance via highly-conductive materials, the DF52 Series is well-suited to high-current applications. "The DF52 Series has a housing wall thickness 1.5 times thicker than competing connectors. With a breaking strength of 9.5N, this wire-to-board connector is 1.5 times stronger than competing products on the market," said Rick van Weezel, vice-president of sales and marketing, Hirose Electric USA. "The DF52 Series offers one of the most reliable, high power connectors in a compact, space-saving design." In addition, the DF52 Series features a patent-pending design with slits in the housing that allow visual confirmation of mating completion and improves overall efficiency of assembly. The DF52 Series is rated up to 2.5A maximum with 28 AWG for 2 positions. Multiple positions ranging from two to 20 are available. The series is RoHS-compliant, with an operating temperature range of -40C to +85C, a rated power voltage of 100V AC/DC, a rated power contact resistance of 10mohm, and an insulation resistance of 100Mohm minimum at 100VDC.
