MATERIALS: ITT Interconnect Solutions has eliminated the need to use board-to-board connectors with its new cost-saving plastic connector. Providing a direct interface into the “box,” the APD direct PCB connector is connected to a PCB internally, rather than with a standard crimped cable connection.
The APD direct PCB connector is sealed to IP67 and IP69K specifications, providing protection against the effects of dust and temporary immersion.
Available in 6, 7, 19, 37 or 51-way versions, the APD direct PCB connector is also equipped with a 4-way configuration for sensor applications. The APD direct PCB connector features machined contacts with a press-in contour, and up to four color and mechanical codings. Maximum operating voltage is 48V. The connector is compatible with selective wave processing.
Typical pricing for the APD direct PCB connector ranges from $5 to $25 per mated pair.
