DF50 Series, 1mm pitch connector from Hirose with robust locking mechanism
The DF50 range consists of single row and double row compact receptacles and headers that have been designed with space saving and durability in mind for industrial applications needing more strength and reliability. The vertical housing and fine pitch of 1mm allow for maximum space saving on the board which reduces the mounting area needed.
The metal lock provides a consistent and positive tactile click even with repetitive mating, this ensures the connector is fully engaged guaranteeing complete electrical and mechanical connection. The lock is centred on the housing to avoid uneven locking and cable entanglement which is common with side locks.
The housings have been designed with thicker and more robust walls to prevent cracking. A long insertion depth and blade contacts are utilised to prevent damage against any wrenching forces. The receptacle features a robust and reliable lance structure which keeps the contacts securely in place even when high forces are applied to the cable. High contact reliability is achieved with gold plating with a long effective mating length.
Other benefits include surface mount contacts and a vacuum pick up area on the housing. A nickel barrier is incorporated on the contact to avoid solder wicking. DF50 will be available in 20, 30, 40, 50 contacts in double row. For single
