1Equipped with Easy Lock Mechanism
2Smooth Insertion and Extraction Feeling
1. Ease of Use and Space Savings
Only one finger or 6.9N (Newtons) of force is required to
lock Hirose’s rotational actuator (flip-lock) as compared
to using 2 fingers and 39.2N to close a FFC/FPC
connector from our competition.
The Flip-Lock design also allows customers to place 2
or more connectors side by side as there is no need to
waste additional board space for a side latch.
2. Strengthened Flip-lock Actuator
The standard Flip-Lock requires only 2.0mm height
above the board. A strengthened lock lever is available
which only requires an additional 0.4mm.
3. Supports Thin FPC (0.18mm)
Hirose does not require double-sided FPC to have any
additional strengthening plate or stiffener and can therefore
support a thickness of as little as 0.18mm +/- 0.05.
4. Hirose Ensures Reliability
Hirose’s patented half tuning fork contacts maintain the
required normal force without relying on the connector
housing. With our competitor’s conventional products
the housing walls support the contact force, which does
not provide for long-term reliability.
5. Prevention of Solder Bridge
Excess solder cavity absorbs excessive solder and
avoids solder bridging.
6. Three different assembly types
FH12 is offered in Top & Bottom Contact and Vertical
Mount and offered in both a 0.5mm contact pitch as well
as a 1.0mm contact pitch (bottom contact only).
