AVX Corporation offers a new series of tall board-to-board stacker connectors. The new 00-9148 Series tall stacker connectors are reliable, robust and cost-effective. The connectors have outstanding resistance to shock and vibration; helping reduce tolerance accumulation in a variety of demanding applications across the automotive, consumer, medical, and industrial markets. The single-piece connectors also decrease assembly time and shorten BOM lists. They feature a double-row design with an 8mm (±0.2mm) board-stacking height, a 1mm pitch, and eight positions, each rated for 1A continuous current. Also, due to flexible tooling, application-specific variants, including single-row connectors with 4-16 positions, double-row connectors with 8-32 positions, connectors with 4mm-12mm board-stacking heights, and connectors with locating bosses for enhanced mechanical stability can also be accommodated. Rated for 125V, 50 cycles, and temperatures spanning -40C to +125C, the connectors are ideal for connecting two parallel boards in applications. These include portable devices that require docking or cradle charging, automotive entertainment systems, portable medical equipment, patient monitoring devices, industrial devices that need pluggable or programmable modules, and internet applications that require battery back-up, among others.
"Thanks to flexible tooling, our new 00-9148 Series tall stacker connectors provide robust, reliable, and cost-effective board-to-board interconnect solutions ideally suited to a wide range of demanding, cross-market applications with varying specifications," said Jiri Vojacek, product manager, AVX Interconnect.
