Molex's Picoflex® range provides high power and signal connectors in a space-saving, robust and reliable package for a diverse range of wire-to-board applications. Available in 4 to 26 circuits, Picoflex connectors mate with 1.27mm pitch ribbon cable - a worldwide industry standard. Tested to the high-vibration and shock requirements of multiple industries, Picoflex is ideal for use in diverse applications such as solar applications, weighing systems, vehicle infotainment, telecommunications and portable heart monitors.
Picoflex connectors have a mated height of 6.40mm for vertical-mating configurations - approximately 15% less than traditional 1.27mm connector systems. A strong one-piece upper housing provides excellent cable retention for multiple applications, and is ideal for those requiring small circuit sizes. The high-reliability contact features a four-point interface with the cable and two points of contact between the header and receptacle. Picoflex also offers excellent polarization to both the PCB and between the female connector and header.
Molex has expanded the Picoflex family to include reverse-footprint SMT headers. Available with and without latches and in optional high-temperature plastic, the new headers are compatible with RoHS lead-free reflow soldering processes up to +260°C. Standard cable assemblies are also available from 6cm – 120cm.
