New family of Excel Cell flex cable connectors

09 July 2020

New zero insertion force (ZIF) type board-to- flexible printed cable (FPC) connectors series from Excel Cell Electronic (ECE) feature 0.5 mm pitch/contact spacing in slide surface mount technology (SMT)-type and flip-lock rotary cover type, from Excel Cell Electronic (ECE). Available from New Yorker Electronics, connectors are embossed for automatic mounting in medical ventilators, computers, headphones and security equipment applications.

The EFC-PT24 series (SU/SD/S) flex cable connectors are 4~60-pin slide SMT types. They are offered in a 0.5 Source: New Yorker ElectronicsSource: New Yorker Electronicsmm pitch and are available in different contact configurations: slide type up-side contact, slide type down-side contact and slide type, vertical. They are available in tube or embossed style.

The Excel Cell EFC-PT24 series (RF/RD) is designed with 0.5 mm contact spacing and are also ZIF type board-to-FPC slide SMT connectors but in a flip-lock (rotary cover) type. These 4~50-pin slide connectors are SMT types available in rotate-type sunk-into PCB and rotate type on PCB configurations.

Both series have a dielectric withstanding voltage of 250 V AC RMS, a contact resistance of 20 mΩ max. (initial), 40 mΩ max (final) and withstands an operating temperature of -40° C to 85° C. ECE can supply a complete cable assembly with an FPC wire thickness of 0.30 mm if needed.
