WR-FPC Series ZIF and LIF Connectors

Würth Elektronik’s WR-FPC series connectors have an optimized design that offers good contact between mating parts

Image of Würth Elektronik’s WR-FPC Series ZIF and LIF ConnectorsWürth Elektronik’s WR-FPC series zero insertion force (ZIF) and low insertion force (LIF) connectors have become increasingly common in several applications, especially when a connection to a small display or keyboard is required. These low profile, lightweight connectors were developed to meet a combination of requirements with a secure and removable connection.

On a printed circuit board, both ZIF and LIF connectors can be used with WR-FFC flat flexible cables (FFC) as counterparts. To connect the FFC into the connector housing, simply insert the cable according to handling cautions and warnings to ensure a firm connection. Compared to ZIF, LIF connectors are better for static applications because they use friction to secure the FFC. ZIF and LIF connectors are a one connector solution used to fasten wires to a printed circuit board inside a piece of electronic equipment.

The 1.0 mm pitch surface mounted technology (SMT) LIF connectors are available in horizontal and vertical types.

The SMT ZIF connectors are available in 0.5 mm and 1.0 mm pitch options with three actuator types which include black lock, hinge, and slider.

Features
  • Maximum cable retention even in small sizes
  • Easy insertion system, even for very thin cables
  • Optimized design offering good contact between mating parts
  • Nickel underplating preventing the tin whisker phenomenon
  • Plastic resisting to high temperature for a lead-free reflow compatible product
  • Fixed metal tabs for a secure product positioning on the PCB
  • Phosphor bronze contacts offering good contact resistance, good elasticity, and low wear which enables users to repeat several mating cycles
  • Tape and reel packaging can be used on pick and place machines for automated assembly and is, therefore, more suitable for SMT parts
Applications
  • Displays and screens
  • Equipment programming
  • Testing and measurement
  • Mobile electronic devices
  • Brown goods
