Connector's Flip Bar Design Guards Against Disconnection

product pic

A new flexible printed circuit (FPC) connector features a flip bar design with its locking tab mounted on the back. This design eliminates the possibility of the bar disconnecting if a flat flexible cable is lifted. Unlike a conventional rotary locking connector, the FPC needs just three assembly steps: mount the connector, insert the flat flexible cable, and lock the flip bar. The connector has double-sided contacts, which means the user does not have to discriminate between FPC upper and lower contacts when connecting a flexible cable to upper and lower pc boards.
The FPC connector accepts standard flat flexible cable 0.3-mm thick and is available in 10, 20, 24, 30, 35, 40, 45 and 50 pole models. It is available in 0.5 mm pitch rotary lock and ZIF slide types and ultra-low profile connector side entry non-ZIF type. Applications include cell phones PDAs and laptops.
