Robust board-to-board connectors with 0.8mm pitch

Compact connectors with an innovative contact system

 

With contacts on both sides, the ScaleX technology guarantees a long-term stable electromechanical connection, even in the event of stress caused by shock or vibration. At the same time, the principle enables a high level of tolerance in terms of connectors that are positioned differently due to assembly.
In addition, the insulating housing geometry reliability prevents the incorrect interconnection of the connectors. EPT presents shielded versions with 12,20,32,52 and 80 positions. The closed shielding ensures a high level of electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and is therefore ideally suitable for interference-free data transmission at transmission rates of up to 16Gbps.
At a later date, Zero8 (EPT) with shielded and unshielded versions for stack heights of up to 20mm, as well as with angled versions will be introduced.
