GradConn has launched a brand new Push-Push Micro SIM connector with a 1.5mm profile, delivering functionality and cost effective pricing.
Suitable for Micro SIM cards the CH03-GB has a footprint of 15.75mm x 17.17mm. CH03-GB is available with six or eight contacts and includes a card detect switch feature which allows the user to detect when the card is inserted. It’s rated at 1,500 card insertion cycles and has an operating temperature range of -40° to +85°C.
No separate plastic tray is required to hold the card in place, the Micro SIM card is inserted direct.
Push Push type SIM connectors allow a Micro SIM card to be pushed into place, the 2nd push operates a spring which ejects the card, eliminating the need to extract tiny Micro SIM cards by hand. Push-Push technology is often used in applications where the end user insets a card from outside the equipment, the connector is normally mounted on the edge of a PCB with the mating face accessible via the customer’s panel design.
