Contour Electronics now offers the complete Ulti-Mate line of Nano-D connectors including options for PCB mounting, through-hole or surface mount, in both straight and right-angle variants. For cable applications, standard wires can be offered or, if required, customer wires/cables can be attached to suit.
The Nano connectors are available in both single and dual row for wire-to-wire, wire-to-board and board-board connections. In response to customer requests for Nano-D connectors that do not need the grounding or shielding of metal shells, Ulti-Mate has made the total line available in fully molded Liquid Crystal Polymer bodies, acost-effective alternative to the standard offering of aluminium, stainless steel and titanium shells.
The contacts are rated to 1A. The precision-formed pin is a single-piece, “crimp-less” contact ready for PC board termination. The Nano connectors have a standard operating temperature of -55C to +125C. However, for high temperature applications (such as down-hole tools in the oil and gas industry), the temperature range can be increased to either +200C or +240C.
