WR-FPC 1.00mm SMT ZIF Horizontal Back Locking Dual Contact and WR-FPC 0.50 mm SMT LIF Horizontal Dual Contact devices provide reliable retention for ribbon cables and flexible pcbs. Both products share a high level of protection against wear and loosening of the connection with their dual contact and securing points. The latter is of particular interest for slender connectors used with 0.5 mm pitch cables, which secures according to the LIF principle (Low Insertion Force) without locking—only with the spring tension of the contact. WR-FPC model is available in versions with 6 to 24 pins, while WR-FPC model comes with 4 to 22 pins. A special feature of the space-saving ZIF (Zero Insertion Force) connector is the locking mechanism on the back.
