Hirose has expanded the locking options for its 2mm pitch DF51 Series wire-to-board connector. The new DF51K Series provides a space-saving centre lock design. The user-friendly positive lock offers a clear tactile click and secures a solid connection. Offered in multiple widths, the centre lock lever provides high-density mounting and facilitates easy operation. Also, the centre lock stops damage during cable assembly and gives secure mating. It also allows users to identify reverse mating and stops mechanical interference.

The series is intended for a broad range of products including industrial machinery, medical equipment, amusement equipment, robotics, office equipment, smart meters, water heaters and more.

"High signal performance combined with reliability and durability are the benchmarks of the SignalBee connector family. Hirose continuously works to offer customers more connector options that simplify design, ease assembly and improve end-product performance. Expanding our DF51 Series, the DF51K with the centre lock design provides high-density performance and simplified assembly all in a space saving package," said Bill Kysiak, product marketing manager for Hirose Electric USA.
