High current, low profile FPC connector for battery, motor lines

November 15, 2016 // By Graham Prophet
Sourcing Kyocera Connector Products, AVX has the 6808 Series right-angle FPC (flexible printed circuit) connector, claiming unrivaled physical and performance specifications for battery, power supply, robotics, and small electric motor applications.

The 6808 Series FPC connector is, AVX says, the only ultra-miniature, flip-locking FPC with dual-sided contacts and a 4A power rating. AVX is sole authorized supplier of Kyocera Electronic Devices to the Americas and Europe. The high current, low profile 6808 Series right-angle FPC connector is an ultraminiature (0.5mm pitch), flip-locking FPC connector with a 4A power rating and dual-sided, top and bottom contacts that effectively mitigate FPC insertion and PCB layout restrictions. Featuring six power pins capable of transferring up to 4A and one signal pin capable of transferring 0.5A, 6808 Series FPC connectors can also be employed as seven-pin signal connectors, and come combined with a notched FPC to prevent contact misalignment and enhance resistance against shock and vibration.


Featuring a zero insertion force (ZIF) flip-lock design with right angle cable connections, copper alloy contacts, and heat-resistant plastic insulators, 6808 Series connectors measure 7.3 x 5.3 x 1.5 mm (L x W x H), and exhibit a minimum FPC retention force of 15 Newtons. Rated for 50 VDC, operating temperatures span -40°C to +85°C, with 10 mating cycles
