WILMINGTON, Mass., Nov. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Heilind Electronics, the largest distributor of interconnect products in North America, is now stocking the Micro-MaTch connector family from TE Connectivity (TE). With contact spacing of .050 (1.27mm), the Micro-MaTch signal-level series of miniature connectors rank among the smallest systems on the market. Available in several types, including board-to-board, wire-to-board and direct board, the Micro-MaTch connector family offers the design engineer a wide range of connector choices.
The Micro-MaTch connector series' contact helps prevent fretting corrosion, the traditional failure mode in tin-plated connections. Relative movements caused by vibrations or thermal expansion between male and female contacts are absorbed by an additional positioning spring in the female part. The high contact force needed for this design helps eliminate the requirement for gold plating, without sacrificing performance. Additionally, the spring system has been engineered to be fully optimized for its basic function. As a result, the relatively high contact force, required for tin-plated contact systems, can be assured under all circumstances.
Additional features of the Micro-MaTch connector family include:
Micro-MaTch connectors are well suited for any low power, high vibration signal application. For example, in a car, Micro-MaTch connectors can be found inside the stereo, the GPS navigation system, the dashboard, and also connecting LCD interfaces.
Additional applications for the Micro-MaTch connector family include:
