I-PEX EVAFLEX® 5/0.5mm Pitch FPC/FFC with ground PIN, high temperature resistant connector

One of the easiest connectors to handle in many of our I-PEX connector series is the FPC / FFC connector. The EVAFLEX® 5-SE-G VT and EVAFLEX® 5-SE-G HT connectors (VT = Vertical Type, HT = Horizontal Type) feature:

●Auto-locking mechanism

●Applicable for high temperature environments

●Compatible with common FPC/FFC connectors

●Grounding function, shielded FPC/FFC applicable

1.Automatic Locking Design – Ideal Choice for Manual or Robotic Assembly After being installed on the PCB, achieving a one-step mating by inserting and locking the FPC/FFC connector, which enhances usability, productivity, and contributes to factory automation.

 (When removing the FFC/FPC connector, simply press the lock button for easy single-handed operation.)

The mechanical lock securely latches onto the recess of the FPC/FFC reinforcement plate, allowing for vibration and wiring, aiding in achieving a strong connection.

When the connector is locked, real-time tactile feedback through a clicking sound reduces instances of improper mating.

Unlike traditional FPC/FFC connectors, this connector does not require opening and closing of a piano hinge during use, thereby improving assembly efficiency and reducing the risk of lock damage.

Furthermore, due to the soaring labor costs, labor shortages, reduction in assembly costs, and decrease in defect risks, manufacturing automation will accelerate. Meanwhile, the operation of robotically inserting connectors is also increasingly expanding. I-PEX has developed a fixture capable of grasping cables for robots, continuing its efforts towards automation.

2.125 ° C heat resistance, impact resistance and vibration-test evaluation under strict environmental conditions of various vehicle equipment

Evaluate under strict test conditions, such as temperature cycle test, heat test, vibration test and impact test.

3. GM -designed FPC/FFC -it can help improve the design and assembly of the end of the board

These connectors have a general design that allows selection horizontal or vertical chimeric directions in common FPC/FFC design. Because the chimeric direction can be changed without changing the FPC/FFC, the module can be applied to a wider range of equipment.

 4. Grounding function, you can choose shielded FPC/FFC

To achieve stable signal transmission by grounding function, shielding FPC/FFC can prevent electromagnetic interference of other components and equipment.

What are the types of wire-to-board connectors? What are their advantages?

Line-to-Board connectors are products used to connect different circuit boards together. They have good transmission capabilities and are mainly used in industries such as finance, manufacturing, medical equipment, communication networks, appliances, and office equipment.

Based on the connection method between circuit boards, Line-to-Board connectors are further classified into different types, including the commonly used and affordable Pin Header and Socket connectors, compact and inexpensive FPC (Flexible Printed Circuit) connectors, and larger-sized, thick Line-to-Board connectors. When dealing with various types of Line-to-Board connectors, it is crucial to make the correct selection.

In today’s trend of miniaturization and refinement, connectors are no exception. Integrated connectors exemplify simplicity by compressing the contact points, offering the following advantages:

  1. They use heat-resistant and temperature-resistant plastic housing, allowing for a wider range of applications.
  2. By compressing the contact points, they improve efficiency and area of connection with the local gold-plated subboard, enhancing flexibility and convenience of use.
  3. The contact area is designed with many irregularities to prevent accidental detachment and resulting damage. This design also reduces solder paste thickness and improves accuracy.
