HIROSE FH34 Series

Here we would like to introduce the new HIROSE connector series. This connector series is suitable for standard FPC and FFC cables with a maximum thickness of 0.3 ± 0.03 mm. We offer this connector as tape and reel packaging unit (5,000 pieces per reel).

The profile of the FH34 connectors is very low with a height of 1.0 mm and a width of 3.8 mm, the connectors are popular in space-saving applications. FH34 connectors are the only ultra-flat ZIF connectors that can be used with standard 0.3 mm thick FPC.

There are two versions of the FH34 connector: FH34SRJ for FPC/FFC and FH34D, suitable for FFCs with side-catchers.

Secure plugging & high holding force

FH34SRJ offers increased FPC/FFC retention force due to the special design of the connector. The so-called "top & bottom" contact and tapers on all 4 inner walls of the connector provide the improved retention force and smooth FPC/FFC insertion. The retention force is approximately 2.6 times higher in the horizontal direction and approximately 2 times higher in the vertical direction compared to existing similar designs.

With the FH34D connector the mechanical locking is approximately 2.5 N higher in the horizontal direction than with the FH34SRJ connector.

On the back of the connector there is a unique "back-flip rotary drive" which ensures a reliable electrical and mechanical connection. Incomplete mating is prevented with HIROSE's proven "flip-lock mechanism". The FPC/FFC cable is reliably fixed in place. The clear, tactile click of the cable is combined with an audible click sound and signals correct mating.

Both connectors are available in numerous other pin counts (4-50 pin for FH34SRJ and 4-30 pin for FH34D). Connector type FH34SRJ is available, FH34D is currently only available on request with a minimum order quantity of 250 pcs.
