HIROSE Electric Co. Ltd, a world-class manufacturer in connectors, has introduced the FH72 series of flat printed circuit connectors (FPC) for Industrial applications.
A unique one action lock allows a FPC to be inserted into the connector without opening the actuator. This can be done with one hand or by automated machinery to save valuable assembly time and reduce mating failure.
Furthermore, the FPC is easy to insert into the connector due to the wide entry point.
High retention FPC force is achieved by the robust locking mechanism. This firmly retains the tabbed FPC into position to secure mating.
The correct placement of the FPC can be visually inspected through small openings in the top surface of the connector.
The FH72 series is designed with an integral molding structure that has no gaps to prevent solder wicking.
The small pitch of 0.3mm saves space on the board, which is ideal for smaller applications.
Ideal applications are wearable devices, smart home applications, medical devices and others.
