Tiger Eye wire system for micro rugged applications

- Advertisment -

RS Components (RS), introduced Samtec’s Tiger Eye discrete wire system with a 1.27mm (0.050”) pitch. The connector system is designed for micro rugged applications, requiring high reliability and mating cycles.

Tiger Eye is a multi-finger, heat-treated, Beryllium Copper (BeCu) contact designed for rugged environments. The contact mating surface is on the flat, smooth side of each finger, providing lower contact resistance and longer plating life. In addition, the spring properties of BeCu make it ideal for high mating cycle applications. The 1.27mm system passes the 10-year (mixed flowing gas) MFG test for up to 1,000 mating cycles.

The Tiger Eye discrete wire system is available as components or complete assemblies with a choice of PVC or Teflon® cable, in 28 and 30 AWG. The TFM and SFM series are mated socket and terminal sets available in vertical, right-angle and horizontal orientations in a variety of stack heights with through-hole or SMT terminations. To avoid mismatch the connectors are polarised single and double row and keyed. The shrouded body aids blind mating. Screw down, locking clip, friction latching and weld tab ruggedising options are also available.

Samtec’s Tiger Eye cables, plugs, sockets, and terminal strips are now available from RS South Africa and across Sub-Saharan Africa.
