Low-profile modular EN 6165-compliant rectangular I/O connectorsNicomatic is launching Optimus, an EN 4165-compliant, modular, rectangular I/O connector series. This low-profile interconnect product is user-configurable and is applicable either to provide an equipment interface connection to a harness or as a robust rack and panel system.

Conforming to specifications set out in EN4165, Optimus connectors are highly versatile. Modular construction enables designers to specify the layout they need. Connectors can be configured with size 22 signal contacts rated at 5A or size 8 power contacts rated for 60A. 90-degree PCB mount versions are also available. Devices are waterproof and offer EMI protection.

Alexis de Lassat, product manager at Nicomatic comments: “We have applied Nicomatic’s modular manufacturing philosophy to the industry-standard EN 4165 hi-rel rectangular I/O connector, and we are able to design and deliver mechanical solutions adapted to the specific requirements of our customers on optimised lead times. With this new connector series we can now offer connectors for the whole equipment need – from the miniaturised inside the box connector to the robust Optimus I/O equipment interface.”

The new Optimus EN 6145 connectors can withstand 500 mating and de-mating cycles as per EN 2591-406. Devices also meet the shock and vibration requirements of EN 2591-402/403 and have an operating temperature range of –55 to +175degC. The connectors provide excellent protection against EMI and withstand 10 times lightning strikes of 10KA, 1600V.
