Low profile I/O connector by Nicomatic is EN6165-compliant
The Optimus is a rectangular I/O connector series launched by Nicomatic that can be custom-configured.
The EN4165-compliant, modular, rectangular I/O connector series is low-profile and user-configurable. It can be used to provide an equipment interface connection to a harness or as a robust rack and panel connector, says the French company.
The modular construction enables designers to specify the layout they need. Connectors can be configured with size 22 signal contacts rated at 5A or size eight power contacts rated for 60A. 90 degree PCB mount versions are also available. The Optimus connectors are also waterproof and offer EMI protection, adds Nicomatic.
The Optimus EN6145 connectors can withstand 500 mating and de-mating cycles as per EN2591-406. Devices also meet the shock and vibration requirements of EN2591-402/403 and have an operating temperature range of -55 to +175 degrees C. The connectors protect against EMI and withstand 10 times lightning strikes of 10KA, 1600V.
