ERNI announces that it is now offering a press-fit version of its vertical D-sub series. The new press-fit D-sub connectors are available in a 6.3 mm format with 9, 15, 25 or 37 positions. The contacts are plated in the mating area to meet IEC 807-3 / DIN 41652 requirements and tin-plated in the termination area. The front metal shield provides for meeting EMC requirements. The new generation of D-sub connectors is suitable for conventional tin/lead applications as well as for lead-free applications. A metal mounting bracket reliably relieves strains arising from plug insertion, removal, and cable handling. The integrated locking hardware accessories ensure low-resistance ground connection and reliable fastening of cable housings to the connector. Press-fit clips provide the standard means of strain relief to the circuit board, while also providing a path to ground. For handling higher forces, screw locks with M3 and 4#40 UNC threading are available.
