Hitaltech will now offer Omron’s range of FPC-FFC connectors, including the XF3M.

XF3M

This connector is suitable for applications requiring a connection between an LCD panel and a printed circuit board or for other board-to-board connections across varying electronic and industrial applications.

The key feature of the XF3M is the rotary back-lock mechanism, which offers easier cable insertion, positive confirmation of correct installation and a very secure retention of the cable in use. The mechanism is based on a rotary slider for securing the FPC/FFC cable, which is mounted independently from the FPC/FFC socket. A sharp ‘click’ on engagement makes it easy to confirm that the latch is completely locked.

This mechanism enables the socket to be constructed with a four-sided housing that securely holds the FPC/FFC cable for enhanced mounting reliability. With conventional rotary lock connectors, the rotary slider is positioned at the FPC/FFC socket, which means that lifting the cable or applying excessive force may cause the rotary latch to disengage. The design of the Omron XF3M looks to address these issues.

The connector has a height of 2.0mm and a depth of 6.4mm (when locked). The XF3M has a dual contact structure, enabling the cable to be inserted either way up. 

To simplify insertion, the connector can accept cable inserted at an angle, and will then lock securely to hold the cable in place. 

It accepts 0.3mm thick FPC or FFC cable, is available in 0.5mm or 1.0mm pitches and conforms to a widely used industry accepted board footprint. 

The moulded parts use LCP (liquid crystal polymer) resins and its halogen-free construction makes the XF3M environmentally friendly.

Hitaltech has recently announced its appointment as an authorised Omron Electronic Components distributor.
