New APD direct PCB connector from ITT Interconnect Solutions eliminates board to board connectors

by donpedro

A new cost-saving plastic connector which eliminates the need to use board- to-board connectors has been developed by ITT Interconnect Solutions. The APD direct PCB connector provides a direct interface into the “box” but is connected to a PCB internally, instead of using the standard crimped cable connection. Additionally, this new connector requires no harnessing which saves board space and results in reduced manufacturing costs.

Robust and lightweight, the APD connector is sealed to IP67/IP69K, providing protection against the effects of dust and temporary immersion. Combined with excellent resistance to oil, this connector suits a wide range of industrial, transportation and military applications. Operating voltage is 48V maximum. The connector is available in 6, 7, 19 37 or 51-way versions, plus a 4-way configuration for sensor applications. Machined contacts have a press-in contour and up to four colour and mechanical codings are available. It is compatible with selective wave solder processing.
