ERNI Electronics, the pioneer of DIN 41612/IEC 60602-3 connector technology, has redesigned its right angle female DIN connectors for daughter card applications.
The fresh design approach delivers a number of key benefits relating to reliability and efficient assembly.
ERNI’s new family of right angled DIN 41612 connectors is available, from Erntec , in type R, R/2 and R/3 variants.
By using the Eye of the Needle pressfit zone, the press-in force is reduced by approximately 25%, resulting in less stress on the PCB and increased reliability.
An Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) step during the manufacturing process ensures 100% controlled pin quality.
Regarding the mating face and the termination side, ERNI’s new connectors are fully compatible to existing versions.
The implementation in current series is possible without changing the layout. A press-in cover used on every pressfit version enables the type R female connector to be pressed in with a cost effective flat rock press-in tool, without damaging the contacts.
All type R connectors are suitable for use with a simple coding mechanism that uses coding tabs. The RoHS compliant Through Hole Reflow (THR) versions are built from a high temperature resistant material that makes them capable for reflow soldering.
