Heilind Offers TE Connectivity MEZALOK Connector
Heilind Electronics is now stocking TE Connectivity’s MEZALOK connector, a rugged surface-mount mezzanine connector incorporating a “super-redundant” mini-box contact system for separable interface. The MEZALOK connector is available in 60 and 114 positions, and the Mini-Box contact system provides four points of contact for reliability. The 114-position model is designed to support VITA 61 XMC architecture as a rugged alternative to VITA 42 XMC, and the 60-position connector is designed for custom architecture stacking applications. Ken Pirt, Heilind supplier business manager, said, “Our customers will appreciate the superior thermal stability of the LCP plastic housings and the 500-mating cycle durability.” The MEZALOK connector features multiple points of contact, covered socket contacts with generous lead-ins, protected socket end for reliable blind mateability, and a sealed, mated connection to prevent failure from debris. It also features optimal thermal stability and 500-mating cycle durability. Applications for MEZALOK connectors include global, aerospace, defense, and marine. Visit Heilind online.
