ELECTRONICS: ITT Interconnect Solutions offers a comprehensive range of zero insertion force (ZIF) connectors for medical diagnostic and imaging equipment. Utilizing a landed contact system, there is no connector engagement force and the only wear on the contacts occurs as they are pressed together and lightly wiped past each other during the camming and locking operation.
ITT’s ZIF plug and receptacle devices include the DL Series and DLD Series thermoplastic connectors; DLM Series, DL4 Series and DLP136-272 Series aluminum connectors; DLP 408 Series zinc alloy connector; and QLC zinc connector. Available in contact arrangements ranging from 60 to 2,496, the connectors feature gold-plated copper alloy contact material and cost as much as 25 percent less per mated line than singular high-density rack-and-panel connectors.
Typical pricing for ITT’s line of ZIF connectors ranges from $6 to $1,500 each in minimum order quantities of five pieces. Lead time is from six to 14 weeks.
