TE Connectivity


New 0.5mm locking Flexible Printed Circuit (FPC) connectors from TE Connectivity (TE) offer secure retention to prevent accidental de-mating when used in rugged environments.

The design of these FPC connectors, which have the part numbers 2041215-1 and 4-2041215-0, ensures their locking tabs remain in the retention cavity, resulting in a minimum 24N total unmating force. A robust actuator provides stronger retention of mated contacts, helping prevent breakage during assembly. The front-flip actuator allows the operator to ensure that the FPC cable is inserted correctly.

A Zero Insertion Force (ZIF) design results in less wear on the FPC contacts, and enables the connector to sustain a higher number of mating cycles.

In addition, the locking FPC connector requires no tooling for mating and unmating, simplifying installation and lowering overall cost.
