Wurth Electronics REDFIT IDC SKEDD Connectors
Wurth Electronics' REDFIT IDC SKEDD connectors are solderless connectors that eliminate the need for a mating connector on the PCB. The connectors have flexible, forked contacts that are inserted directly into PCB vias to form a low resistance, four-point connection that is vibration resistant. The 2.54 mm pitch contacts have a 1 A current rating, and they can be removed and reinserted multiple times. This results in a low-profile connector with lower total cost and higher reliability ideal for signal connections, programming, and debugging in consumer electronics, solar, and industrial applications. The connector housing includes plastic guide pins to prevent reversed connections and provide passive locking. REDFIT IDC SKEDD connectors are available with up to 20 circuits, with simple and fast IDC connection to 1.27 mm half-pitch ribbon cable.
