KYOCERA AVX has further expanded its well-proven portfolio of battery connectors for board-to-board and battery pack integration applications with the release of a new fine-pitch connector series designed for medical, industrial, and networking applications. The newest additions to this product portfolio, which already offered the broadest selection of standard battery connectors currently available on the market, are the new 9155-020 Series 1.27mm-pitch battery connectors.
Like the rest of the 9155 Series product family, the new 9155-020 Series 1.27mm-pitch battery connectors feature ultra-robust and -reliable gold-plated beryllium copper (BeCu) contacts proven to establish and maintain high-integrity electrical connections in harsh application environments with operating temperatures extending from -40°C to +125°C for up to 15,000 mating cycles. They also feature low-profile, UL94 V-0 flame-retardant, glass-filled liquid crystal polymer (LCP) insulators that measure just 2.35mm high, have a nominal working height of 2.5–3.1mm, and are end-to-end stackable for broad configuration and application suitability. The new 9155-020 Series 1.27mm-pitch battery connectors are currently available in two-, three-, four-, and five-way variants with a nominal force working range spanning 0.30–0.55N, a minimum of 0.8μm ductile nickel underplate, a minimum of 0.75μm hard gold in the contact area, and 1.5–3.0μm lead-free matte tin on the tails. Two- and three-way variants are rated for a full 3A per contact, while four- and five-way variants are rated for 2A per contact, and all four immediately available part numbers are rated for 400VAC.
The new 9155-020 Series 1.27mm-pitch battery connectors are optimized for use in a broad, cross-market range of compact, lightweight, and low-profile handheld and portable devices that require docking or cradle charging. Ideal applications include portable medical equipment, such as battery packs for portable oxygen generators, patient monitoring equipment, industrial devices with pluggable or programming modules, and internet appliances that require battery backup.
The new fine-pitch 9155-020 Series battery connectors are supplied in tape and reel packaging for compatibility with automated pick and place equipment features 1,100 parts per 330mm reel, and are compatible with RoHS soldering processes. The Standard lead-time for the series is nine weeks.
