Molex 0.30mm Easy-On™ FPC Connectors

Overview

Molex 0.30mm pitch Easy-On™ FPC Connectors include a wide range of ultra low-profile FPC connectors designed for tight-packaging applications. The 0.30mm pitch Easy-On Connectors are available in a variety of fine-pitch options including push and flip-type actuators, which feature pre-assembled covers that secure the connection between the FFC-FPC and the connector terminals. The Easy-On actuator provides easy FPC cable insertion with an audible "click" when mated and a reliable FPC connection with Molex's cable retention feature. Designed to meet the downsizing needs of electronic equipment manufacturers, the offering includes dual-contacts to eliminate the need to source different top and bottom mount versions, narrow width versions for further space savings, and various cable tab and actuator locking styles to provide additional cable alignment and retention. With a wide range of design options, Molex 0.30mm pitch Easy-On™ FPC Connectors are well-suited for applications requiring an overall compact size such as digital still cameras, digital video cameras, mobile devices, portable audio equipment, portable GPS equipment, and other handheld devices.

0.95mm

Molex Series 503566 Easy-On™ FPC Connectors offer the narrowest depth (2.85mm) of any Molex 0.30mm pitch versions. The series combines the optimal combination of space savings, contact retention assurance and ease-of-use for tight-packaging applications. The connector was designed for tight-packaging mobile applications such as smart phones or digital still cameras to allow manufacturers to reduce size while adding increased functionality. The 503566 series connector incorporates some of the proven features of other Molex FPC connectors such as a robust Easy-On™ actuator for stable mating functionality and reliable contact retention. The series also includes other new or improved design features such as: housing design that highlights the FPC ear tabs more to help assure proper cable seating; wider gap for easier cable insertion; and a longer area to hold onto the actuator to make assembly easier and quicker for operators.

Movable contacts provide both lower cable insertion force as well as more secure contact retention force. This is achieved by odd-numbered contacts moving with the cable in case it is pulled up or down to assure electrical contact is still maintained. While certain competitive versions may have a narrower depth or lower profile, the Molex 503566 version offers one of the best combinations of compact size, contact retention assurance and ease of use.

Features and Benefits

2.85mm depth

Space savings to allow for other components or tracing

Movable contacts

Provide lower insertion force and higher contact retention force

FPC ear tabs

Facilitate cable insertion for proper alignment and assured electrical reliability

Longer area to access actuator

Easier locking for faster assembly

1.10mm

Molex Series 501616 Easy-On™ FPC Connectors features one of the narrowest widths of any top-contact FPC connector for smaller circuit sizes in the market today. The series offers a low 1.1Omm profile, short width of 3.7Smm, and Easy-On™ BackFlip™ Actuator to achieve an overall space savings on smaller circuit sizes. With the actuator area separated from the contact area, the  Easy-On™ BackFlip™ Actuator  can help achieve lower profiles. In addition, the Easy-On™ BackFlip™ Actuator is often easier to actuate than front-flip types because it allows the designer to use both hands more easily.

Features and Benefits

Narrow 3.75mm housing width  (19-29 circuits)

Among the narrowest housing width for top-contact styles

Easy-On™ BackFlip™ Actuator

Easy cable insertion and extraction; enhanced space savings

Two actuator lengths depending on circuit size
