ERNI, represented by Erntec , is expanding its offering of SMT D-Subminiature connectors by adding vertical D-Subs for SMT applications.
The vertical SMT D-Subs complement the existing right angle male and female SMT, press-fit, and through hole reflow (THR) D-Subs.
They are the result of a complete product line redesign by ERNI.
The new D-subs help ERNI's customers reduce printed-circuit-board assembly costs by enabling them to simulatneously process vertical D-Subs in the same SMT production line used for other SMT components. This eliminates or reduces additional processing steps.
Designed for production efficiency and reliability For fully automatic pick-and-place, the new vertical D-sub connectors are delivered with tray or tape-on-reel packaging that is well suited for automated processing.
A large, integrated suction hood enables easy and reliable pick-up with the vacuum pipette during mounting. The insulator body is made of high-temperature-resistant LCP thermoplastic, and is designed for soldering with all commonly used SMT soldering processes.
Together with the tin-plated terminals, the black insulator body and black suction hood offer strong contrast for reliable optical recognition.
For increased reliability, a metal mounting bracket with a large surface relieves the strains arising from plug-in, removal, and cable handling.
Furthermore, the integrated interlock hardware accessories ensure reliable fastening of the cable housings on the connector.
The new generation of D-Sub connectors is suitable for conventional tin/lead soldering and already meets the requirements for lead-free soldering in accordance with the RoHS specifications.
These lead-free soldering requirements will be mandatory beginning in July 2006.
The new connectors are available with overall heights of 6.3mm or 9.0mm in compliance with DIN 41652 and CECC 75301-802 specifications. They are available with 9, 15, 25 or 37 positions.
The contacts are gold-plated in the mating area and tin-plated in the termination area.
