JST Corp.'s ZPD Series wire-to-board,
double row, crimp style connectors are designed with a secure locking device to
ensure connector mating integrity even under adverse conditions. These SMT and
through-hole connectors are polarized and have a positive locking feature that
provides an audible click with tactile feedback when mated. These 1.5 mm (059
inch) pitch, top and side entry connectors are useful for consumer, commercial,
medical and industrial high density, low current, low voltage applications.
disconnectable, crimp style ZPD Series is available in 10 to 30 circuits in
increments of 2 circuits and is rated at 2.0 A ac/dc (using 24 AWG) at 100V
ac/dc. These low profile connectors have a mated side-entry height of 9.2 mm (.362
inch) and a top entry mated height of 9.5 mm (.374 inch). Wire sizes AWG #28 to
#24 are accommodated. Temperature range is - 25 to +85C (including temperature
rise in applying electrical current). The crimp contact housings are molded of
a UL94V-0 rated PBT material. Contacts are copper alloy, copper undercoated and
tin plated. The RoHS compliant SMT headers are molded of a Polyamide UL94V-0 rated
material. The top entry headers also feature weld tabs to provide additional
retention to the pcb.
are offered on standard size reels for semi-automatic or fully automatic application
tooling while mini-reels are offered for mini-reel hand tools. SMT headers are
provided on embossed tape for automatic insertion equipment.
