Rugged Tiger Eye™ Systems

These rugged, high reliability, high cycle interconnects feature Samtec's Tiger Eye™ contact system.


FAMILY OVERVIEW

Available in three pitches (0.80 mm, 1.27 mm and 2.00 mm), these micro rugged interconnects feature Samtec’s Tiger Eye™ contact system for high reliability and high cycle applications. The multi-finger, BeCu contacts provide redundant points of contact along with the best combination of mechanical and electrical properties. Increased design flexibility is achieved with the choice of surface mount or through-hole termination, as well as vertical or right angle orientations and ruggedizing features such as friction latching, weld tabs and locking clips.

FEATURES

  • High reliability Tiger Eye™ three-finger BeCu contact system
  • Optional locking and latching systems for higher withdrawal force
  • Extended Life Product™ testing available
  • Standard and cost-saving designs
