KYOCERA AVX 9159-7X0 Series double-ended linear card-edge connectors feature robust beryllium copper spring contact system, which delivers high electrical and mechanical reliability, high signal integrity and high durability in harsh environment applications. The contacts combined with the convenience of a double-ended, single-piece and solder-free-mating card-edge design make it suitable for linear pcb mating in harsh industrial, LED lighting, automotive lighting and transportation lighting applications. Product series is available in open- and closed-side configurations with high-temperature white or black UL94 V-0 insulators, five contact variations (4, 6, 8, 10, and 12 positions), gold or tin over nickel contact plating, and current ratings up to 2A per contact. It is designed to mate with 1.5mm-thick (±0.15mm) pcbs with gold- or tin-plated pads and rated for 150VACrms or the dc equivalent, up to 1,000 cycles with gold-plated contacts (up to 20 with tin), and operating temperatures extending from -40°C to +130°C.
