Omron pioneered the design and production of Rotary Backlock Mechanisms on FPC connectors. With this model type, the slider is located on the backside of the connectors, enhancing efficiency and reliability significantly over traditional locking mechanisms. Read on to learn all about the premium features that Omron’s FPC portfolio has to offer that will make your application connections easy.

Connectors are delivered with the rotary latch open.

Compared with traditional rotary lock connectors, the XF3M FPC Connectors eliminate the need to unlock the latch, therefore improving assembly work productivity.

Key Features

XF3M Pitch
  • Rotary backlock mechanism
  • Dual contact structure

Connectors are delivered with the rotary latch open.

Compared with traditional rotary lock connectors, the XF2M FPC Connectors eliminate the need to unlock the latch, therefore improving assembly work productivity.

The rotary latch is independent of the FPC socket.

High reliability: A mounted FPC will not come off even if excess force is applied to it.

Dual Contact

The contacts make contact from both sides, so there is no need to distinguish between the upper and lower contacts when connecting upper and lower PCBs.

  • Lower contact with 0.3 mm pitch
  • On-board height 0.95 mm, depth of 3.5 mm (Locked)
  • Rotary frontlock mechanism
  • Applicable FPC thickness of 0.2 mm.
  • Set the molding wall for easy FPC insert

Smartclick™ connectors that reduce installation work

Omron's XS5 series of IP67-rated circular industrial connectors feature a one-touch bayonet locking system enabling connection in just 1/8th turn. The integrity of the circuit connection is far superior to traditional screw-style connectors due to an audible click indicating complete insertion. They are available in plug or socket versions and are ideal for industrial applications.

Other end-system assembly advantages include reduced connection time and easier "blind mating" as situations present themselves. The connectors also provide optimum seal performance when compared to screw styles because the chance of over or under tightening seals has been eliminated. Improved shock/vibration resistance combined with a connector that will not unscrew ensures the connection, thus reducing costly equipment downtime.
