Low-Profile XF FPC Connectors

Ultra-low profile FPC connectors feature a high retention lock in high-density applications

Image of Omron's Low-Profile XF FPC ConnectorsThe Omron XF series, the new series of low profile FPC connectors, feature a rotary locking mechanism that offers easy operation and secure mounting in tight workspaces. These FPC connectors are ideal for high-density tight packaging applications such as PDAs, cell phones, media players, digital cameras, video players, test and measurement, and home security devices.

These connectors feature four-sided housing construction that prevents FPC displacement when the lock is engaged or disengaged. The connectors’ reliable rotary locking mechanisms are independent of the FPC socket.

The connectors are delivered with the locking mechanism in the open position thus improving production time when assembling FPCs into the sockets.
