Jumper beschriftet
The flexilinkjumper is a non-pluggable board-to-board connector that can be used in a variety of situations. Its space-saving design and high current rating of 11 Ampere per pin make it a winner. It has a variable pitch of 2 or 4 millimeters and offers two to 15 contact bridges. This allows you to choose board-to-board distances perfectly suited to your requirements, making it particularly suitable for
applications such as LED strips in building, automation, and automotive electronics. It withstands exceptionally strong mechanical loads such as shock and vibration. No elaborate soldering process is necessary – the flexilinkjumper uses press-fit technology to ensure the easy connection of two or more printed circuit boards.

Features

  • Variable pitch from 2–4 millimeters
  • 2–15 contact bridges
  • Up to 11 Ampere current rating per pin
  • Saves space and reduces costs; replaces spacers
  • Connection created using just a single part
  • Withstands high mechanical loads, shock, and vibration
  • Press-fit technology eliminates the soldering process
  • Customized board-to-board distance as an option
  • Press-fit system: Tcom press

Applications

  • LED in building, automation, and automotive technologies
  • Drive technology
  • Sensors
flexilink b t b
As with the flexilinkjumper, the flexilinkbtb ensures a secure contact with mechanical loads such as shock and vibration thanks to press-fit technology. The flexilinkbtb can be customized to your needs: Configure your flexilinkbtb in terms of height as well as number of rows and contacts. It can have one to three contact rows, two to 90 pins, and board-to-board distances between 5 and 25 millimeters. Each pin has a current rating of up to 11 Ampere. This means the flexilinkbtb is particularly suitable for high-current applications and is at its best in applications with thick-copper circuit boards.

Features

  • Up to 11 Ampere current rating per pin
  • 2–90 pins
  • 5–25 millimeters in height
  • 1–3 rows
  • Saves space and reduces costs; replaces spacers
  • Connection created using just a single part
  • High mechanical load, shock, and vibration
  • Press-fit technology eliminates the soldering process
  • Customized board-to-board distance as an option
  • Press-fit system: Tcom press

Applications

  • Machine tools
  • Agricultural technology
  • Automotive
  • Intralogistics
  • Lifting and crane technology
  • Drive technology

PCB Connector with press-fit technology

Produktmanager Lehmann Flexilink Homepage2
"Our rugged flexilink connector with press-fit technology is perfect for a sturdy connection for applications with high switching currents.

The flexilink comes in two variants:

flexilinkjumper for horizontal PCB connections.
It impresses with its space-saving design while at the same time boasting a high current rating. A board-to-board distance of 1 mm and a footprint of only 3.8 mm on the circuit board enable maximum use of space and a range of applications. For example, the connector can be used to daisy-chain LED boards. The circuit board connector is a mere 2 mm high.

flexlinkb-t-b for parallel PCB connections.
The flexilinkbtb connector and its 2.54 mm grid guarantees you a high-quality PCB connection with its press-fit technology. The two-sided connector is a perfect solution for high switching currents because no contact junction limits current carrying capacity. The advantage of this is evident: A reliable mechanical as well as electrical board-to-board connection is created using just a single part. There is no need for any spacers – not only saving on PCB real estate but also reducing costs. The flexilinkbtb adapts to your needs: You can choose flexilinkbtb for board-to-board distances of 5 to 25 millimeters as well as combine different rows and numbers of pins."

Questions & Answers Regarding flexilink Board-to-Board-Connector

Can you also press the flexilink into a thicker copper base?Why is there a minimum purchase volume for the flexilink?
Can you also press the flexilink into a thicker copper base?

Yes, the flexilink can be easily pressed into thick copper circuit boards.

Why is there a minimum purchase volume for the flexilink?

The minimum purchase volumes are due to the high consulting effort involved, the complex machine technology, and the installation of the press.

Testimonials about the flexilink Board-to-Board-Connector

Out of respect for our customers’ wish for discretion, we do not list the sources of the following quotes. However, we guarantee the full authenticity of these testimonials.

We were able to solve our space problems and launch our new development to the market on time with the help of ept’s flexilink.

Industrial Automation Project Manager

We were able to use the flexilink to ensure that there were no contact interruptions even in molded assemblies due to ept’s gas-tight press-fit system.

Head of Development for Sensors

Flexilink allows us to implement the exact board-to-board distances we need.

Hardware Development Team Leader

With the flexilink, we only need one component instead of two to reliably connect PCBs together.

Hardware Development sensors/Data acquisition

We achieved the best results with flexilink in our extreme shock and vibration tests: There was not a single contract interruption in the joints between the flexilink pins and the PCB’s through connection!”
