Nicomatic SMT Latch LS type for 90° SMT connectors

ImageNICOMATIC has launched a new SMT latch for its CMM 100 and CMM 200 series female connectors. It completes the existing range of friction and straight SMT latches already available.

The SMD latch is generally used in board-to-wire interconnection systems where a connector is fixed to female housings on cable.
The SMD latch is aimed to medical, military, nuclear and industrial applications whose main specifications are extremely demanding in terms of mechanical, climatic and chemical resistance (eg. resistance to solvents and radiations).

The new product, made of Beryllium alloy over Nickel 3µ, is applicable to 1 and 2 row connectors with low frequency contacts, 90° SMT (R type contacts).  Typical Nicomatic part numbers are 101RnnLS (from 2 to 25 LF contacts) and 201RnnLS (from 4 to 50 LF contacts).

The Nicomatic SMD latch leads to substantial production cost reduction on electronic modules as it is no longer necessary to use the strain relief strap and thus to pierce PCB wholes. The latch allows a high quality mechanical locking system and PCB soldering at the vapour phase. Tape & Reel packaging is made possible.
