Tyco introduces its AMP PACE card edge connectors. The connector is based on .100 inches× .200 inches centerlines and accepts .054 inches to .070 inches daughter cards. Eye of the needle contacts accommodate solder-free press fitting into a printed circuit board. Since this product is flat-rock compatible, no special tooling is required. Next generation AMP PACE card edge connectors are suitable for computer boards, communication equipment, industrial controls and machinery as well as test equipment and instrumentation. The connectors are available in 10 through 60 dual position sizes and have the same overall dimensional envelope as current AMP PACE connectors. Contacts are rated for 3 amps and 1000 VAC withstanding. The housing is molded from glass-filled polyester while the contacts are phosphor bronze with nickel underplating and select gold finish. Contact insertion averages 7 pounds per contact.
