With the ongoing technological advances, the demand for a cheaper and better way of manufacturing electronic devices is a perpetual challenge.
The PCB industry, the backbone of electronic device manufacturing, certainly feels the heat of this constant demand.
While devices, and their corresponding PCBs are getting ever more compact, it also results in the need to fit an increasing number of functions into as small a space as possible. This coupled with the demand for lower manufacturing costs presents a daunting challenge.
This is where Phoenix Contact’s new SDC 2,5 SKEDD PCB connectors come into its own.
With the new SDC 2,5 connector, Phoenix Contact is presenting the first PCB connector with innovative SKEDD direct plug-in technology and Push-in connection. The new PCB connectors are connected directly to the PCB via through-contacted bore holes. This means there is no need for an additional header. Component and process costs are thereby reduced.
The connectors are easily mounted on the PCB without tools and locked with the integrated body-bound rivets to form a vibration-resistant connection. The SDC 2,5 series is suitable for conductor cross sections from 0.2 mm² to 2.5 mm². It is designed for currents up to 12 A and voltages up to 320 V (IEC). The connectors, with a pitch of 5.0 mm, are available in versions with up to 16 positions. Thanks to the Push-in connection, they offer an unprecedented level of convenience when it comes to device connection.
