HIROSE ELECTRIC Adds the Branch Adapter as a New Variation to 2mm pitch, compact and crimp-type signal wire-to-board connector “DF51” Series.
Hirose Electric is happy to announce that the branch adapter has been added as a new variation to 2mm pitch, compact and crimp-type signal wire-to-board connector “DF51” Series.
● Demand for Reduced Wiring
In industrial equipment equipped with various module components, wiring has become more complex, especially due to the increase in the number of cables used for internal connections. Due to this, there is a need for wiring reduction . When branch wiring is used for this purpose, existing branch adapters are often large or of the soldering type, which requires time-consuming wiring, and this has become a problem.
● Crimp-Connection Reduces Wiring Man-Hours Despite Its Ultra-Compact Size
To solve this problem, Hirose Electric has developed a branching adapter for the DF51 series of 2mm-pitch signal board-to-cable crimp connectors. By mating with a single-row type socket, current is split, contributing to reduced wiring inside equipment. In addition, the "DF51" series uses the same terminals and crimping tools as the long-selling "DF11" series board-to-cable connectors, making harnesses easier to complete. Compatible cable sizes range from 22-30 AWG and are UL/C-UL certified.
Mated Dimensions : 7pos. (Unit : mm)
Branch Design* : 7pos.
*The shunting balance in actual use varies with the resistance ratio of the branch destination.
Example of Use
Features : 2mm Pitch, Positive Lock, Wire-to-Board Connector “DF51” Series
1. Wide varieties satisfy various customer requirements
Straight/Right angle/In-line Connection/Branch, Single/Dual row, Gold/Tin Plating, etc.
2. Side lock design enables user-friendly operation and reliable connection.
3. High contact lance strength prevents contact pulling loose while wrenching the cables.
● Future Development
The "DF51" series branch adapter will be available in the following variations:
- Under Mass Production : 7pos. (Gold plating)
- Planned for Development : 2, 3, 4 and 6pos. (Gold plating)
It can be used for multi-axis robot arms, AGVs, AMRs, industrial drones, etc. Hirose will continue to develop products that meet diversifying needs and contribute to the further evolution of equipment.
