Heilind Now Stocking Connectors From TE Connectivity's Micro-MaTch Connector Portfolio

WILMINGTON, Mass., ­Nov. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Heilind Electronics, the largest distributor of interconnect products in North America, is now stocking the Micro-MaTch connector family from TE Connectivity (TE). With contact spacing of .050 (1.27mm), the Micro-MaTch signal-level series of miniature connectors rank among the smallest systems on the market. Available in several types, including board-to-board, wire-to-board and direct board, the Micro-MaTch connector family offers the design engineer a wide range of connector choices.

The Micro-MaTch connector series' contact helps prevent fretting corrosion, the traditional failure mode in tin-plated connections. Relative movements caused by vibrations or thermal expansion between male and female contacts are absorbed by an additional positioning spring in the female part. The high contact force needed for this design helps eliminate the requirement for gold plating, without sacrificing performance. Additionally, the spring system has been engineered to be fully optimized for its basic function. As a result, the relatively high contact force, required for tin-plated contact systems, can be assured under all circumstances.

Additional features of the Micro-MaTch connector family include:

  • UL-recognized: File No. E28476, Vol. 23, Section 4
  • Wire connectors supplied on-tape and suitable for mass termination of 28 AWG [0.08 mm2 to 0.09 mm2] ribbon cable
  • Fully plated contacts: no bare edges and no migration of corrosion products
  • Contacts fully protected by polyester housings, except for side-entry female board connector
  • Full range of application tooling from hand tool to fully automated equipment.                     

Micro-MaTch connectors are well suited for any low power, high vibration signal application. For example, in a car, Micro-MaTch connectors can be found inside the stereo, the GPS navigation system, the dashboard, and also connecting LCD interfaces.

Additional applications for the Micro-MaTch connector family include:

  • Production equipment
  • Robots and motors
  • Control cabinets
  • Monitoring
  • Material handling
  • Pumps
  • Drivers
  • Base Stations
  • Phones
  • Set Top Boxes
  • Audio equipment
  • Video game controllers.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense.
