AVX Corp. has released the new 9155-700 Series 2 mm-pitch right angle board-to-board battery connectors, which are rated for 125 Vac, up to 2 A, and 5,000-cycle durability. Designed to provide miniaturized, mechanically stable, high-integrity connections in harsh environment applications subject to high shock and vibration, including: handheld and portable devices that require dock or cradle charging, patient monitoring devices and other portable medical electronics, industrial programming modules, point of sale (POS) terminals, and a broad range of IoT devices, the new 9155-700 Series connectors feature a compact design with a 4-mm connector height, a stable contact point 2.1 mm above the PCB, robust and reliable gold-plated beryllium copper (BeCu) contacts, two SMT anchor brackets, and optional plastic locating bosses.
“Many portable electronic devices are designed to accept right angle modules, and these devices are especially subject to the overwhelming trend toward miniaturization. So, we designed our new 9155-700 Series right-angle battery connectors with a minimal 2-mm pitch and 4-mm connector height while maintaining the 2 A rating of our larger right angle battery connectors to help engineers respond to continual requests to minimize size while retaining, if not adding or improving upon, capabilities,” said Tom Anderson, connector product manager, AVX.
Made of high-temperature nylon plastic compatible with RoHS soldering, 9155-700 Series connectors are rated for operating temperatures spanning –40°Cto 125°C. Two-, three-, and four-way versions are rated for 2 A, and five- and six-way versions are rated for 1.5 A. The series also features a unique design that retains the contact nose within the insulator to prevent damage in both the static position and during mating deflection, and is offered with either 0.4 µm or 0.8 µm selective gold plating with pure tin tails to ideally suit both less demanding applications, as well as extreme environment applications, which can benefit from the increased durability and wear resistance enabled by heavier gold plating.
AVX also offers right angle board-to-board battery connectors with a 2.5 mm pitch (the 9155-500 Series) and a 3 mm pitch (the 9155-300 Series).
