New PC/104-plus connector allows 22 mm Board-to-Board distance Peiting, 02 May 2011. So far, PC/104-plus connectors allowed a Board-to-Board distance of 15.24 mm. To connect several printed circuit boards, this is sufficient most of the time. To connect additional components, manufacturer however often require a greater distance for the installation of cooling systems. EPT responds to this need as a specialist for connectors, and therefore now has a suitable connector in the range first: the PC/104-plus there are the standard height, as well as a higher specification, which allows a Board-to-Board distance of 22 millimetres. PC/104-plus connectors were available only in the standard height of 15.24 mm.
The distance should be larger for some electronic components. This applies, for example, to heatsinks, fans or other cooling systems. The provider ept from the Bavaria Peiting now closes the gap, also in the literal sense: the market leader for PC/104 connectors the PC/104-plus now also available in a version for 22 mm Board-to-Board distance offers. This gives electronics manufacturers more flexibility. The new dimensions are stated in the current SUMIT specification; They therefore comply with the prescribed sizes for computer components. PC / 104 and PC/104-plus plug connector by ept give producers more flexibility in the design of electronic circuit boards, since they are available in different versions.
Still, connectors the standard height can be ordered in addition to the new, higher model. In addition, ept offers the PC/104-plus connectors with short and long posts. The long posts enable direct connect of another circuit boards. The new connector is combinable with all available PC/104-plus boards. Simple processing due to press-fit technology in construction of the PC/104-plus the insertion technique is used. This means that the connector pins (PINs) into the PTH hole of a PCB are pressed. Since the offset zone in the PIN has a larger diameter than the hole, but is slightly flexible, an excess pressure is created. This ensures the electrical connection between connectors and PCB. The insertion can be done with a tool in a single operation and has the big advantage that no soldering is required. This simplifies not only installing, but is also more environmentally friendly, since the components are then recycled.
