Miniature connectors enhance soldering performance
HIROSE ELECTRIC DF50 Series 1mm pitch board-to-wire connector provides a locking mechanism located at the center of the connector that provides a clear, tactile click sensation regardless of the number of repetitive cycles. While reducing the required PC board mounting area, device prevents uneven locking commonly attributed to side locks and to prevent incomplete mating. Product has a robust and reliable lance structure with a high cable pull force of 10N minimum to prevent contacts from pulling loose during installation.
