Two in one. Three in one. All in one.
We are constantly looking for that one thing with multiple uses or solutions. From laundry detergent that fights stains, cleans deep and protects color all at the same time, to the twenty-in-one pocket knife with a glass-breaker. I guess you never know when you might need to escape a sinking car.
One product family that supports multiple applications is Samtec’s new Micro Mate™ 1.00 mm pitch discrete wire system. This system is available now for your cable-to-board, cable-to-cable or cable-to-panel applications, so no need to wait for a sinking car situation.
Micro Mate™ also offers incredible space savings. Compared to other 28 AWG assemblies, this system features an extremely small form factor. The slim body design allows for a profile as low as 3.2 mm when mated with a right-angle board connector (also available in vertical).
In addition, rugged features were designed in with single or double positive latching and optional Teflon® cable for high temperature or halogen-free applications. Dual leaf contacts provide a reliable connection and up to 3.3 Amps per pin.
With a choice of socket or terminal assemblies in single or double row and up to 40 total pins, Micro Mate™ is highly configurable to meet your application requirements. Additionally, the panel mount assembly fits a panel thickness range of .033″ to .090″. Further design flexibility as full assemblies or components with assembly tooling is available.
