JST Corp.'s new SFH Series Wire-to-Board Crimp
Style Connector is a compact, low-profile connector with both polarization and a
secure friction locking device to ensure reliable contact in low-current, low-voltage
conditions. They have a 1.8 mm (0.071 inch) pitch and side entry mated heights
of only 3.0 mm (0.118 inch).
SFH Series is available in a two circuit size. Contacts are tin-plated over a
phosphor bronze base material and accommodate a wide range of 22 to 30AWG.
Current is rated at 4A ac/dc (using 22 or 24 AWG) at 350V ac/dc. Temperature
range is - 25to 85C (including temperature rise in applying
electrical current). Socket housing is 94V-O-rated thermoplastic resin material
and is notched on one side for ease in locating the pin one position. Available
in side-entry only (right-angle) mounting configuration, the RoHS-complaint,
fully shrouded headers feature insertion guides for easy and secure mating. SMT
headers are provided on embossed tape for automatic insertion equipment. Hand
press, pneumatic press and high volume automatic machines are available for ID
Because of the increasing ubiquity of wearable technology, it would be easy to think that design of wearable devices is routine and involves common design and engineering knowledge. Missed efforts in development will be remembered once the devices are used in the field
This grab-bag of new fasteners and adhesives work with a range of materials they can attach to, as well as a wide variety of applications. Several are for use in consumer applications, such as wearables or other compact electronic assemblies, and some of the adhesives have extended service temperature ranges and cure at room temperature.
As governments, associations, and NGOs around the world seek to protect consumers, national and regional standards are becoming mandatory, challenging manufacturers and making testing and certification necessary for any product developed and brought to market.
