ERNI's LPV family of IEC 60603-13 (DIN 41651) compliant connectors offers a selection of board-to-cable connectors with a 2.54 mm pitch. The IDC technology that is employed ensures gas-tight and corrosion-resistant contact with a consistently low contact resistance throughout the product's service life. An integrated polarizing key in the middle of the connector housing prevents incorrect mating and damaged contacts. Optional locking latches secure the connection by providing additional protection against inadvertent release caused by strain from vibrations and shock loads. When the locking latch is opened, the female connectors are lifted out of the contact evenly in order to prevent damage. The female connector is designed to be used with 1.27 mm ribbon cables. The male connectors are available with press-fit, wave-soldering and through-hole-reflow termination.
