FCI has enlarged its high density Compact D series to 62-contact connectors in straight receptacle versions as a complement to its press-fit D-sub range in 78 contacts. Provided with press-fit terminations, these connectors also help to avoid the cost and time of an additional wave solder process. They are compatible with any PCB thickness starting from 1.6 mm. The 62-contact receptacle connector occupies the same board space as 37-contact versions, and it is suitable for telecom and industrial applications. Mounting options include threaded inserts, receptacle screw locks and harpoons for grounding purposes. The Compact D connector range is available in tray packaging.
