Slimline connector for interfacing up to 168 points in test systems

19 July 2010

Now available exclusively in the UK from the Peak Group is the i2 Micro iCon connector from Virginia Panel Corporation. Offering up to 168 signal contacts in a slimline configuration, the new connector offers mass interconnection for automatic test systems, including equipment based on PXI cards.

Incorporating capabilities for discrete wiring, horizontal and right-angle PCB mounting, the i2 connector features a 30° cable exit for vertical stackability, along with a 0.8-inch wide footprint for horizontal stackability. The engaging mechanism integrates spring locking tabs that fasten over the latching post for secure engagement. Keying pins and a square locking mechanism ensure even and precise engagement.

The 30º angled cable exit reduces the height required by the connector, allowing more space in front of the rack for instrumentation and minimising the vertical space between connectors in a multi-connector panel layout.

A new 84-pin header allows the i2 to connect directly to a PXI card. The header contains solderless compliant (‘eye of the needle’) pins for ease of use and implementation. Using VPC’s QuadraPaddle signal contact technology, standard and twin female contacts provide consistent and even connections.

A number of different PCB connection options are available, including i2 direct to PCB, i2 to flexprint, i2 to PCB adaptor card, and i2 discrete-wired.
