HIROSE: FH52K – FFC/FPC Automotive connector with 125°C heat resistance


Temperature range -40°C to +125°C

HIROSE has introduced the FH52 series to meet the requirements for highly reliable and robust flat flexible cable/flat printed circuit (FPC/FFC) connectors.
The FH52 series can withstand higher operating temperatures than standard FPC/FFC connectors, particularly FH52K series that has an extended temperature range up to 125°C. Due to this extraordinary heat resistance the connector satisfies the needs of severe automotive requirements.

The insertion of the FPC/FFC into the connector is user-friendly due to the wide 110° opening range of the rotating actuator. Special cavities on each side of the connector, known as ‘side catchers’ are provided to hold a tabbed FPC/FFC in place. FH52K series is designed with L-shaped metal fittings to allow visual inspection of the soldering process from the top. In addition, an enhanced PCB retention force of approximately 90N can be achieved.
