Further additions have been made by Erni Electronics to the company’s MicroCon connector family. In addition to the 50-pin straight male and female connectors that were originally introduced, other versions with different numbers of pins, heights and also angled ­variants are now available for a wide variety of applications.

The devices feature a modular tool manufacturing design for the insulator body, they can be supplied in these versions with pin numbers from 12 to 140 and heights at 1mm or 2mm for the male connectors as well as 4mm, 6mm and 8mm for the female connectors.

The MicroCon connectors are designed for parallel (board-to-board and Mezzanine), orthogonal (90 degrees) and coplanar PCB connections. With versions of various heights for the female and male connectors, it is ­possible to realise different board-to-board distances of 5 to 10mm (later up to 20mm) for Mezzanine applications.

For connections over greater distances, IDC ribbon cable connections are provided for AWG 34 cables.

The dual-row MicroCon series with 0.8mm pitch are ideal for applications including  industrial, medical, lighting, automotive and consumer electronics markets. The devices are also ideal for automatic SMT assembly.
