Provertha offers a wide D-Sub connector range for an extensive variety of applications and now also has a nine-pin slimline version for industrial applications in its portfolio. The high-performance connector from the TMC series reduces the needed PCB area by up to 33% when compared to a conventional D-Sub due to its 90-degree angled SMT terminations in ultra-flat design. The device's reliability under high mechanical loads ensures sufficient safety reserves in harsh industrial applications. Due to its compact installation height of only 4.65mm, this connector now provides the industry with outstanding opportunities for miniaturisation of highly robust device interfaces.
The notable features of the connector include its solid metal pegs, which are firmly fastened to the metal housing. They reliably absorb the insertion and withdrawal forces under mechanical stress and facilitate effective and reliable grounding. The insulating body is composed of high temperature resistant high-performance thermoplastic and a solid large SMT connection area to satisfy the coplanarity demand to ensure safe SMT application. The black insulator aids simple and clear recognition with a vision system. Also, the fully automated SMT assembly and soldering process is assured by tape-and-reel packaging and an integrated pick-and-place area for the vacuum pipette. Soldering anchors absorb the insertion forces and, therefore, guard the contacts. A dual-beam female contact assures maximum contact reliability.
Further benefits are the high current carrying capacity of 4A at 20C and the extensive mechanical life of 250 mating cycles. The connectors are offered as male or female versions with multiple mounting options (through-hole and threaded rivet for UNC 4-40 or M3).
