PTFE CABLE OPTIONS FOR SAMTEC DISCRETE WIRE INTERCONNECT SYSTEMS
Samtec has recently added polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) cable options for several of its discrete wire interconnect systems. This material’s ability to withstand a wide range of temperatures along with its low rate of outgassing, resistance to flame, abrasion and corrosion, long lifespan, and excellent dielectric properties make PTFE cables ideal for avionics, military, and other harsh-environment industries and applications.
Selection of PTFE cable for the following Samtec products can widen the operating temperature (compared to PVC cable) by as much as 45˚C, depending on wire gauge and system:
1) Tiger Eye Discrete Wire .050” (1,27mm) Micro Pitch System with Samtec’s high reliability Tiger Eye three-finger BeCu contacts and rugged latching system (SFSD/TFSD Series)
2) Power Mate Discrete Wire System with 5.5A per power contact on .165” (4,19mm) pitch (PMSD/PMSS/IPBD Series)
3) Mini Mate Discrete Wire System on .100” (2,54mm) pitch, with 3.6A per contact (MMSD/MMSS/IPD1 Series)
Samtec offers a full line of standard and custom Rugged and Power interconnect solutions for applications where performance in harsh environments and/or power requirements is crucial.
