Description

In2Connect sell the largest range of high quality female PCB card edge signal and power connectors for the PC, communications, instrumentation and test equipment sectors including UL/CSA listings where required.

The contacts of our standard female edge card connectors are made of metals like Phosphor Bronze, Beryllium Copper, Beryllium Nickel or Spinodal 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 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.

We offer a complete line of Sullins, Micro Plastics and EDAC female Edgecard Connectors ranging from .050″, .100″, .125″, .150″, .156″ and .200″ contact spacing with Wire Wrap, Dip Solder, Press-Fit, Right Angle and Extender Card termination styles. These connectors are available in a wide range of sizes from 4/6 to 100/200 positions depending on contact pitch and include a variety of mounting configurations. All parts are currently manufactured to be RoHS and REACH compliant.
