The connectivity offered by T.E. The SUPERSEAL 1.0 Connector Series was developed specifically for applications such as Wire-to-Board (1.0mm) and ECU, as well as for use under the hood and in any other place where sealing is necessary. Applications involving automobiles, trucks, buses, or off-road vehicles are ideal for the automotive Series of components. The SUPERSEAL 1.0 Series uses locking mechanisms, which ensure that the contacts are inserted correctly and completely into the housings and help prevent the communications from backing out while they are being mated.

This Series complies with the sealing standards defined in the IEC 529 and DIN 40050 regulations for the I.P 6.7 rating. The housings of the cap and plug connectors include preassembled secondary locks that help ensure that the contacts are inserted correctly and entirely into the housing. These locks also help prevent the communications from backing out while mating. If the contacts are not perfectly positioned within the connector housing, the secondary lock will be unable to be closed. There are plugs called cavity plugs that can be used to seal off unused connector cavities. The design of the double spring contact ensures both low insertion forces and substantial contact forces. These springs are the primary spring and the auxiliary anti-overstress spring.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are Wire-to-Board Connectors?

Connecting a collection of discrete wires to a printed circuit board (PCB) is the task of wire-to-board connectors. These connectors are responsible for delivering power and signals to the board. There is no standard for wire-to-board connections; instead, the various varieties are unique to the many manufacturers who develop them.

Connectors for wires to circuit boards can be specified according to several features. These include the dimensions of the housing as well as the material it is made of, the stacking height, and the pin pitch. Additional details that can be given include the number of contacts, the length of the connections, and the number of contact rows.

The connector features an integrated locking mechanism, which may take the form of a friction lock, total lock, or rapid disconnect, among other options. In applications that call for a higher level of safety, a locking bar or a connection that snaps into place could be used to keep the wire firmly in place in the socket.

Connectors for wires to printed circuit boards (PCBs) may be surface attached to the board or contain pins that penetrate the board and are soldered to the opposite side.

The wire size and the number of contacts play a role in determining the wire termination technique employed inside the connector. Crimped-on contacts feature connectors designed to carry large power because they ensure a good connection between the wire and the communication and prevent heating. It is possible to automate the soldering process for mass termination connectors that accommodate 20 or more wires each.

As space on printed circuit boards (PCBs) becomes more limited, wire-to-board connectors, like many other electronic connectors, are getting smaller. As a result, ultra-compact connections with profiles that are less than 1.5 millimetres and suitable with automated surface mount assembly in high-volume production have become increasingly common. The reliability of these teeny connections is increased by the presence of gold-plated contacts and possibilities for strain relief.

Connectors that go from wires to circuit boards are productive and economical. They have many uses, including the automobile industry, industrial applications, the telecommunications industry, lighting and display applications, commercial electronic equipment, and home appliance applications.

Where are wire-to-board connectors used?

Connecting a single wire or a set of individual wires to a printed circuit board is the job of wire-to-board connectors (PCBs). These connectors provide a reliable and low-cost way to supply power and signals to printed circuit boards (PCBs) in various applications, including automobiles, factories, lights, and cell phones. Wire-to-board connectors are not only standard in consumer electronics but also in industrial and home appliances.

As there are no “standard” wire-to-board connector designs, the one used will be determined by the application’s requirements. Locking mechanisms range from friction lock and full lock to quick disengagement and low-profile mating, depending on the manufacturer. Some are designed to keep the wire firmly in place by a locking bar, while others use a snap-fit connection. Although most connectors sit on the board’s surface, some include pins that penetrate it and are soldered to the opposite side.

Housing size, materials, number of contacts, stacking height (height of connection as measured from the circuit board), contract length, and number of contact rows are used to define wire-to-board connectors. Pin pitch, the distance between the centres of two conductors, is also included in the stipulations. The size of the wire and the number of contacts determine how the wire is terminated. Connectors designed to carry a lot of current, for instance, typically feature contacts that are crimped on and fastened using a unique tool. Connectors of other types, like those for bulk termination of 20 or more wires, can be made for use with robotic soldering equipment.

Recently, a new generation of ultra-compact connections with profiles under 1.5 mm has emerged that can be used with automated surface mount assembly during mass production. Most of the time, these teeny connections have strain relief and gold-plated contacts to assure dependability. Design engineers now have more alternatives than ever before for choosing the correct power and signal delivery method for their final products, thanks to the wide variety of sizes and types available among today’s wire-to-board connectors.
