Automotive wire-to-board connector withstands temperatures up to 125°C

The miniature, low-profile ZE05 is a robust wire-to-board connector from Hirose which helps to save board space while maintaining a secure and reliable connection in automotive conditions.

The Hirose ZE05 series of wire-to-board connectors for automotive applications is robust enough to handle operation in harsh automotive environments at temperatures up to 125°C. The ZE05 is a miniature, low-profile connector that has a contact pitch of 2 mm, reducing the mounting area and saving space on the board. 

The tin-plated ZE05 series is polarized to ensure correct insertion of the mating half. The ZE05 is available with right-angle or straight receptacles. Both receptacle types feature surface-mount contacts with metal fittings that ensure strong retention of the connector to the board. Retainers may be used to achieve a higher retention force. The plugs use crimp contacts sized from AWG 22 to AWG 20.

Additionally, the ZE05 housing incorporates an integral rib that reduces the clearance space between mated parts. This gives greater isolation from vibration, helping the system to maintain a continuous and reliable connection.
