UContact Board-to-Board connectors from Metz Connect

UContact Board-to-Board connectors from Metz Connect

PC board connectivity has to meet new requirements as many functions and applications are integrated or migrated in one device and devices are getting minimized in size; this development is provoking a high density of pc boards and their arrangement. As a competent partner and specialist for connection components and cabling systems METZ CONNECT has successfully met this challenge.

To make a device fit for carrying several functions and circuits it is essential to interconnect the PC boards that are arranged inside the housing on top of each other or side by side. Board-to board connectors in a great product variety are necessary to do so.

The METZ CONNECT product range of board-to-board connectors is offering exactly the connection system that is necessary to interconnect PC boards in a compact, flexible and reliable way and to compensate the high tolerances in offset and PC board interspaces. Efficient, space-saving but powerful connections of the different applications inside the device are required particularly in building automation and control, data and communication technology as well as in industrial electronics.

METZ CONNECT's clearly extended product range of board-to-board connectors offers now pin headers and female connectors with the standard centerlines 1.27 mm, 2.00 mm and 2.54 mm; suitable for the different soldering methods SMD, THR and wave soldering. Also, different surface coatings are available such as gold (Au), tin (Sn) and selective coatings. Packaging types range from bulk material to tubes up to tape and reel for automatic assembly.

With this product range extension METZ CONNECT is excellently positioned to provide attractive solutions for existing and future challenges and applications in the field of board-to-board connectivity.

  • RJ45 PC board plug allows cableless pluggable connections

    RJ45 connections are all-round connections for more than 30 years. They are found in the telephone and data network connections of buildings and the home network. The connection to the RJ45 jack of a device is done in all these applications by a RJ45 plug with connection line.

    However, applications exist where it is necessary to interconnect two or more parts of the device by RJ45.
