TIGER EYE™ CONTACT
The connector systems incorporate the Tiger Eye™ contact. Tiger Eye is a rugged contact for micro pitch interconnects; it is ideal for high reliability and high mating cycle applications.
Tiger Eye is reliable because it is a multi-finger design. For example, the contact on the FFSD cable assembly has four points of contact.
The contact mating surface is on the flat, smooth side of each finger. Smooth surfaces allow more mating cycles because it does not stress the plating. This provides lower contact resistance and longer plating life.
The base metal of Tiger Eye is heat-treated Beryllium Copper. The superior spring properties of Beryllium Copper make it ideal for high mating cycle applications. Once formed and hardened, BeCu will retain its shape under a wide variety of conditions.
Available in a choice of socket (FFSD Series) and terminal (FFMD Series) terminations, the cable assembly is an exceptionally low .200” (5.08 mm) profile. They are available in a wide variety of design and wiring configurations, including optional strain relief, daisy chain, reverse wiring, and they are available in both components and assemblies.
