AVX low pin-count vertical connector
AVX has developed a low pin count, vertical 2-piece connector for commercial and industrial applications.
The 9159 series of 2-piece board-to-board (BTB) connectors were originally developed for the harsh environments of linear solid state lighting with coplanar PCB mating.
These connectors have been tested to 1000 hours at 125ºC, versus competing products that are only tested to 105ºC.
Providing a 5A current rating with a pin-count of 2 to 6 positions, the connectors feature a gold-plated BeCu contact system that the supplier says will deliver higher signal and mating integrity than tin contact systems.
The vertical connectors provide perpendicular PCB mating, which satisfies a more traditional PCB interconnect scheme typically used in standard commercial and industrial applications.
The 9159 series connectors have an operating temperature range of -40ºC to +125ºC. These connectors are supplied in tape and reel packing and are RoHS-compliant.
