Harsh Environment / Remote Locations

avoiding the need for complex soldering work or expensive cable solutions.

Press-fit is also capable of withstanding the high heat buildup present in environmentally difficult applications, such as automotive engines and high-speed computing servers. The technology outperforms comparable soldered connections with its higher temperature tolerance. The durability of a connector is usually defined by the number of connection cycles it can complete without any reduction in the quality of transmission. The most important factor affecting the number of connection cycles is the quality of the plating. High-quality, durable contact coatings reduce the frictional wear on the surface during the connection procedure. Press-fit terminations can support a wide variety of plating types, based on the demands of the application. A reliable partner for the most demanding applications, press-fit is an excellent solution where temperature fluctuations, shock, vibrations, moisture, dust, and dirt play a major role. Despite a history of over 50 years of use, press-fit remains relevant in the modern day due to its unparalleled cost-saving and space-saving benefits, while offering a rugged, permanent mechanical and electrically conductive connection between the circuit board and the connector.

RESILIENCE IN THE MOST DEMANDING CONDITIONS AND HARSH ENVIRONMENTS A tried-and-true press-fit connection also enables high switching currents. Since no contact transition limits the current-carrying capacity, press-fit can withstand continuous high current as well as tolerating sudden current spikes. This current carrying capability is excellent for high-demand power applications such as climate controls, power tools, agriculture equipment, military and aerospace applications, and manufacturing, medical, and automotive technologies. It also works well for applications that experience high impact from the operating environment, such as temperature fluctuations or vibration.
