HIROSE FH50 series

Here we would like to introduce the brand new HIROSE FH50 series plug. The connector series is suitable for standard FPC and FFC cables with a maximum thickness of 0.3 ± 0.05 mm. Furthermore, the FH50 series can also be used for automatic PCB assembly. We offer this connector as tape and reel packaging unit (1.000 pieces per reel). 

Secure mating & reliable retention force

Incomplete plugging is prevented with HIROSE's unique "Cam function". Here, two rotating cams on the sides of the plug ensure that the FPC or FFC cable is fixed in place. When the cable is inserted the two cams rotate and when the actuator is closed, the cams hold the FPC/FFC firmly in place at the side catchers. The holding force is thus greatly increased and secure plugging is guaranteed. A tactile click of the cable combined with an audible clicking sound signals correct plugging.  

The FH50 two-point contact design also increases contact reliability. Each contact has a spring function and contact errors are avoided. 

The connector is available in other pole numbers (28, 40, 50, 80). We are happy to offer you customised solutions at any time.

Perhaps you are looking for a ready-made foilcable assembly? 

We supply the matching foil cable for the FH50 connector series! Under the following article no.: FFC0.50A28-0288L-6-6-08-08-AU-FH50 you can order the suitable FFC cable from us. The 28 pole cable is 300 mm long, stripped on both sides, UL certified with cut-outs for HIROSE FH50, shielded and with gold plated contacts. You need another length? No problem! Please contact us, we will be happy to advise you.
