Board-to-Board connector takes any angle from +90° to -60°

March 28, 2013 // By Julien Happich
FCI has developed a hermaphroditic board-to-board connector that can be rotated to any angle between +90° and -60°. The RotaConnect board to board connector offers significant design flexibility as the same connector is capable of providing perpendicular, co-planar, or angled interconnect solutions.

The unit mates to itself and can be placed anywhere on the PCB, further expanding design options. The RotaConnect connector features a dual beam spring contact design, delivering high-performance and reliability. Designed with a passive latch for housing retention, the rotatable board-to-board connector's housing protects the pins and prevents mis-mating. Available with optional side brackets for increased PCB retention and optional pegs for location, the connector supports multiple mating and un-mating directions with Y and Z directional floating allowance. Featuring a 3.00mm pitch, these high power board-to-board connectors are available in positions ranging from 2 up to 14 (increments of 2). RotaConnect is rated up to 5A with an operating voltage of 125V AC and a temperature range of -40°C up to +125°C.
