A secure PCB connection for use in hostile environments

Dec 11, 2011 | Electrical & electronics

Designed for hostile environments, Souriau’s 8D Double Flange (38999 Series III) secure PCB connection enables the panel fixing to be separated from the PCB connection. The first flange of the 8D Double Flange is fixed to the panel using a jam nut mounting system, and the second flange is there to hold the printed circuit board in position. This separation between the two means that shocks and vibrations are not transmitted to the contacts, ensuring greater robustness.

The company can supply MIL-STD-1560 layouts in all sizes (from nine to 25). The contacts have no shoulder, which means it is also possible to solder them to boards of varying thickness by reflow or wave soldering. A zinc-nickel protective coating is offered as standard.

In addition to being RoHS compliant, the connector also has the advantage of offering high resistance to salt spray, and ensures good continuity of electrical contact at the same time.
