Molex introduces EdgeLock wire-to-signal-card connector
Wire connector saves space and ensures a secure lock to PCB edge cards
Molex introduces the EdgeLock Wire-to-Signal-Card Connector, which ensures a direct and secure mating to the PCB Edge-Card. The 2.00mm-pitch edge lock connector saves space and reduces assembly time.
“The consumer electronics and appliance industries want a secure connector system, and the EdgeLock meets that need,” said MyungGyu Kim, product manager, Molex. “The EdgeLock connector replaces the typical soldered header and offers a secure connection that also saves space with a centered positive lock.”
The EdgeLock Wire-to-Signal-Card Connector lowers assembly cost by eliminating the need for a mating header assembly. The polarization rib on the connector housing prevents mis-mating to the printed circuit boards (PCB). It also supports the 3.0A Max current. The dual cantilever crimp terminal design with embossed contact points offers greater normal force for long-term electrical reliability.
Reworking a system also is easy, as the EdgeLock system features a latch that allows the assembly to be quickly removed from the PCB. The PA46 resign material is low halogen, which is ideal for high-temperature environments and applications.
