ERNI provides protective covers designed to protect the pre-alignment guides from breaking on 2mm Hard Metric right-angle and vertical female connectors.
The protective covers are an extension of ERNI's broad 2mm Hard Metric product line.
This line of connectors supports board-to-backplane applications and is specifically targeted for use in telecom and datacom equipment, peripherals, test applications, and networking industry segments.
The protective cover is pushed over the mating area of the connector after it is assembled into the board and then removed at final system integration.
They are manufactured to be used with any A, AB, D, DE module that meets the IEC 61076-4-101 specification.
Currently available in bright yellow and bright blue PBT anti-static plastic for easy recognition. The covers are designed for 5+2, and 8+2 female connectors with or without shields.
