The KR connector features a mounting height as low as 6.9mm (.272") and a thickness as thin as 4.8mm (.189") (for top entry type).
It is suitable for interconnection of a wide range of electronic equipment such as VCRs, video cameras, car stereo systems and communication equipment.
- Folded beam double-leaf contact construction
The contact springs are folded to increase their effective strength. This design provides a safety margin that allows the contacts to endure the distortion of misinsertion without being permanently distorted.
- Twin U-slot insulation displacement section
The insulation displacement section connected to the wire consists of two tin-plated slots (twin U-slot) for superb reliability.
The strain relief feature prevents stress due to vibration, impact or bending from effecting the insulation displacement connection. This is accomplished by holding the outside of the wire with the insulation gripping device on the housing. To ensure circuit integrity against vibration and undue tension, ample clearance is provided between the insulation displacement connection and the strain relief.
- Compatible with the PH crimp style connector
The same shrouded header can be used for either PH crimp style connector or KR insulation displacement connector. This allows both types of connector to be used interchangeably without replacing the header.
- Surface mount model (SMT)
This connector is also available in a surface mount configuration. Its housing is made of heat resistant resin so that is is not adversely affected during reflow soldering. Because of its tiny size and ability to be surface mounted, this connector meets the demand for high-density mounting of components inside electronic products.
