New from Aerco is the HDLP range of low-profile, high-density, rectangular PCB connectors from Hypertac, designed for use in applications where small, low mating force connectors with low and stable contact resistance are required.
Hypertac HDLP connectors offer up to 2000 mating cycles, excellent fretting corrosion resistance and are sealed to IP67 when mated. They are particularly suitable for missile guidance and propulsion systems, ruggedised computer systems, cameras, display systems, communications panels and enclosures.
Standard configurations are 30, 58, 90 and 118-way and the HDLP series is available in variants that include PCB-to-PCB, PCB-to-flying-lead and PCB-to-flex. PCB-to-PCB options include stacking and card-edge versions to provide additional design flexibility and interfacial seals and encapsulated contacts ensure a high level of sealing.
Use of Hypertac's hyperboloid contact technology reduces contact resistance and achieves low mating and unmating forces with high reliability and excellent levels of shock and vibration resistance. Hyperboloid technology provides up to 1A per contact at 110V DC, enabling a connection density that is claimed to be higher than that attained by other systems.
All connectors in the HDLP range are available in surface-mount or through-hole versions and are designed for use with pick-and-place machinery.
