Miniature Connectors

Miniature electronic connectors manufactured by Omnetics Connector Corp. (Minneapolis, MN) are fabricated on a 0.025-in. pitch. The dual-row insulator is molded in polyphenylene sulfide, while a liquid-crystal polymer is used for the single-row connectors. The male contacts are stamped from beryllium copper and mate with screw-machined sockets derived from a brass alloy.
