The 89 Series of low-profile, half-pitch connectors utilizes the concept of securely-fit, one-point contacts. Having the most compact design and lowest profile of all KEL half-pitch connectors, and also featuring a guide mechanism, this product is ideal for SMT applications.
The connectors of the 8900 Series have become the de facto standard for removable-media applications as used in laptop computers. Furthermore, the right-angle variation provides three rows of tail contacts in order to facilitate high-density mounting.
With five variations of stacking height between 7 and 12 mm, and eight variations of contact numbers between 20 and 120, these connectors support application in a diverse range of situations. Naturally, connections can be made in three dimensions in the form of stacking, vertical mounting, and horizontal mounting.
