In2Connect sell the largest range of high quality PCB card edge signal and power connectors for the PC, communications, instrumentation and test equipment sectors including 200/250 C “burn-in” applications and to UL/CSA listings if required.

Edge card connectors are embedded devices that mate with the edges of single-sided or double-sided printed circuit boards (PCBs) in order to provide an external electrical connection. Industry standards define power specifications such as voltage levels, power pin placements, and power requirements. For example, PICMG 1.0/1.2 standards define the power specifications for peripheral component interconnect (PCI) and industry standard architecture (ISA) buses. The contacts of edge card connectors are made of metal and are plated with a thin, metallic coating that improves conductivity and prevents rust and corrosion. Plating materials include gold, copper, nickel, and silver. Contacts are housed in a body moulding that is usually made of a plastic material suited to the required operating temperature; these may include PBT, Valox*, Thermoplastic Polyester / PPS Ryton*, Polyphenylene Sulfide / PEEK, Polyetheretherketone / PA9T, High temperature polyamide.
