AVX Corp. Connector Division announces the availability of 2 mm Hard Metric vertical female connectors for backplane applications. These connectors are part of the 8072 Series and are in compliance with International Standard IEC 61076-4-101. 8072 Series connectors eliminate the possibility of bent pins when used in place of male connectors in backplane applications. Press-fit contacts provide for a convenient and highly reliable, gas-tight connection.

All of AVX 2 mm Hard Metric connectors use AVX's Varipin( press-fit compliant pin technology, which guarantees equal force on the complete contact length, allows up to three exchanges of contacts and provides vibration and corrosion resistant connections with low transition resistance.

Applications include telecommunications switching systems, industrial computers, factory automation equipment and computer test systems.

AVX's vertical female connectors are available in Type A and B versions, both are available with or without side shields. Type A connectors are available in 110 pin size, while Type B connectors come in 95 pin, 110 pin and 125 pin sizes. Both types mate with all AVX 8072 right angle male connectors and are fully intermatable with all other 2 mm Hard Metric connectors.

All 8072 Series connectors provide 2 mm contact spacing, a current rating up to 1 A per contact and voltage ratings up to 250 V. Made with phosphor bronze contacts and polyester shrouds, the connectors have a contact resistance of 20 m and an operating temperature of -55 to +125°C.
