ITT Industries, Cannon announces the Universal Contact for a broad range of telecommunications and industrial applications. The contact is manufactured as a single-piece stamped product, incorporating pre-load and anti-lift features. It is designed to overcome interconnect constraints as seen with traditional solutions where the contact is integral to the connecting device. The device is surface mountable with a minimum pitch of 1.35 mm. The miniature footprint allows for placement under small devices, such as microphones. The X-Y-Z movement provides a robust connection between the contact and the component assembly during shock and vibration. Plated with beryllium copper, the maximum current rating for the Universal Contact is 2 amps nominal and 3.0 amps peak at 3.0 V DC. The operating temperature is 40°C - 85°C at a relative humidity of 90%. The pre-load force for the Universal Contact is 0.24 N minimum after three reflow cycles at 220°C. The force at maximum deflection is 0.60 N at 1.0 mm after three reflow cycles. The spring rate of the beam is 0.15 N/mm and the maximum beam deflection is 1.0 mm. The minimum recommended working deflection is 0.5mm.
