Ruggedised Double Point Series

Ruggedised Double Point SeriesRuggedised double point series of card edge connectors. These high temperature connectors' double contact-point pin design promotes long life in mission-critical electronic systems and OEM products


Sullins Connector Solutions now offers the full RDPS Series (Ruggedised Double Point Series) of card edge connectors, Ruggedised Double Point Seriesoptimised for superior durability in high-temperature, harsh environment applications. The RDPS Series is engineered to accept 0.062" (1.58 mm) thick daughtercards and is comprised of 0.100" (2.54 mm), 0.125" (3.18 mm), and 0.156" (3.96 mm) contact centreline parts. Notably, the parts double-contact-point pin design promotes sturdier daughtercard retention than traditional card edge connectors. This unique pin design, coupled with the series material rating of from -65 to +150 degrees C, helps ensure high mating cycles, and long life for electronic systems and end products. This robust series also affords engineers the utmost in design flexibility as devices are supplied in dip solder, wire wrap, right angle bend, and card extender terminations, as well as with a choice of post lengths. Available mounting styles include clearance holes, threaded inserts, side mounting, and with/without mounting ears. Materials are UL94V-0 rated.

Sullins' RDPS Series may be confidently specified to connect high-density PC boards to 0.062" daughtercards in a wide range of industrial, consumer, and commercial systems and end products which need be resistant to vibration, drop shock, and short-circuits involving printed tracks on the PC board. Due to their durable double-contact-point pin construction and high-temperature rating, these connectors are ideally suited for use in test and burn-in oven facilities, power converters, power suppliers, electronic component testing, communications equipment, medical equipment instrumentation, and automotive applications.

The double-row parts feature a current rating of 3 Amp per contact, and are provided in 6-70 contact positions (12 -140 pins). Rated to withstand +150 degrees C continual heat. Their processing temperature range is up to 260 degrees C peak for 120 seconds. Insulator material options are PBT, PA9T, or PPS. The connectors are supplied as standard with 10 microinch or 30 microinch selective gold plated phosphor bronze or BeCu (beryllium-copper) contacts to facilitate high-reliability soldering. They also feature a fully-insulated 50 microinch nickel underplate. Additional specifications include an insulation resistance of 5,000 megohms minimum at 125 VDC, and a 16-ounce maximum insertion force and a 1-ounce minimum withdrawal force per contact pair. Contact resistance is 30 milliohm maximum. Parts rated to +175 degrees C, and those requiring customization, may be special ordered. For complete specifications regarding operating, processing, temperature and material options for Sullins' RDPS Series, contact
