Replacing the Internal Connection of Automotive Powertrains with Board-to-Board. -40 to 140℃ Operating Temperature.
Automotive, Vibration Resistance, Floating Design Connector: FX26 Series
The motors and inverters used in hybrid cars and EV had always had issues with heat generation and vibration. FX26 is a high spec connector with 140℃ heat resistance that was developed with aim of providing specifications for usage in the engine room.
This product has vibration resistance characteristics, a floating design and small size (1mm pitch) with two-point contacts to ensure it can be used safely even in a high temperature environment of 140℃ with continuous vibration.

Ideal Design for the Internal Connection of Automotive Powertrains
Vibration resistance design that clears the severe vibration conditions for equipment installed in the engine room
Standard floating connectors are vulnerable to vibration in the Z direction. However the FX26 Series solves this with its unique floating design, achieving unmatched vibration resistance.
±0.7mm floating in the X and Y directions, ±0.75mm tolerance between boards in the Z direction.
The floating portion on the header enables ±0.7mm floating in the X and Y directions and a tolerance of ±0.75mm in the Z direction between boards. The design prevents misalignment during board installation and mounting.
140℃ Heat Resistance, Withstands the Harsh Automotive Temperature Environment
We have conducted rigorous tests required for automotive products, including thermal shock testing (-40 to 140℃ for 1,000 cycles) and high temperature exposure testing (left at 140℃ for 1,000 hours). We have verified that there are no issues. FX26 can be used at any connection point in sets exposed to high heat including inverters.
