|PROVERTHA provides 25% more space on the PCB thanks to "Small Space" SMT D-Sub connectors in Eurostyle mounting height|
|Pforzheim – 10 January 2022 – Provertha has a comprehensive D-Sub connector range for a wide variety of applications and now also has 9-pin SMT Eurostyle "Small Space" versions in a new design with a smaller footprint on the PCB in its portfolio. This provides more free assembly space for other components and meets the trend towards higher density on the PCB for industrial applications. The high-performance D-Sub connectors from the TMC series in small-space design reduce the required PCB area by up to 25% compared to current TMC Eurostyle SMT D-Sub versions due to the shortened form. Its reliability under high mechanical loads guarantees sufficient safety reserves in harsh industrial applications. Thanks to its small mounting height of only 3.6 mm, this "Small Space" D-Sub connector is ideally suited for miniaturisation in industrial applications and at the same time ensures that the device interfaces are highly robust.
The outstanding features of the connector include its solid full metal SMT mounting elements, which are firmly attached to the metal housing. They reliably absorb the insertion and withdrawal forces under mechanical stress and enable effective and reliable grounding. The insulator body with its integrated pick-and-place area made of high-temperature-resistant high-performance thermoplastic and a solid large SMT termination area to meet the coplanarity requirement ensure the safe SMT application. The black insulator body facilitates simple and clear recognition with a vision system. In addition, the fully automated SMT assembly and soldering process is ensured by tape-and-reel packaging and an integrated pick-and-place area for the vacuum pipette. The SMT mounting brackets absorb the insertion forces and therefore protect the contacts. A dual-beam spring contact ensures maximum contact reliability.
Further advantages are the high current carrying capacity of 5.7 A at 20 °C and the extended mechanical life of 250 mating cycles. The connectors are available as male or female versions with various mounting options, for example with through-hole, thread UNC 4-40 or M3 as well as threaded bolts UNC 4-40 or M3.
