Hirose Electric announced its DF58 Series space-saving, low profile, wire-to-board connectors for miniature applications. These wire-to-board connectors comprise crimp sockets and headers in a single row.
The mated height profile is minimized to 1.0mm and the depth to 4.97 mm to reduce the space needed on the board.
A high current rating capability of 3A (using the 2 contact version with 28AWG cable) can be achieved to support power supply applications.
Secure connection is provided by the ViSe (Vertical-insertion Swing-extraction) double-locking mechanism. The crimp socket is mated to the header in a vertical direction; however it is guided in at an angle to engage with the positive lock. This ensures high retention force in the upper direction and prevents the cables from easily being disconnected. The friction lock prevents incomplete locking and floating after mating.
Highly reliable 2-point clipping contacts are used to stabilize contact resistance and reduce temperature rise. These wire-to-board connectors also have a long effective mating length of 0.29 mm despite the low profile mated height of only 1.0 mm.

- Current rating: 3.0A signal (2 contact version: 28AWG cable)
