ERNI LPV connectors (Latch Headers), in compliance with IEC 60603-13 (DIN 41651), are well known to our customers worldwide. These connectors were installed in large number for interfacing hard disk drives (HDDs) to processor boards about 10 years ago. Miniaturization has created increasingly popular “low profile” versions (e.g. for embedded systems featuring the PC104 or PC104 plus standard). The international standard specifies a soldered pin connector for circuit boards. Meanwhile, other termination types have been established, in addition. The female connector is designed to be used to connect a ribbon cable using IDC technology. Integrated coding at the center of the insulating housing eliminates contact damage caused by improper mating. Optional locking latches secure the connection against inadvertent release due to vibration or shock. The male connectors are available obtained as a pressfit, wave soldering or THR connection system.
