Hirose's DF58 series connectors are an ultra-low-profile wire-to-board power connector that enables the continued miniaturization of consumer and portable electronic devices. With a pitch of only 1.2 mm and a stacking height of only 1.0 mm, the DF58 series connector presents the industry's lowest profile when used with 28 AWG wire. The DF58 series supports higher currents of up to 3.0 A, making it ideal for a wide range of applications.
The DF58 series power connector features a Vertical-insertion / Swing-extraction (ViSe) lock that provides a robust and reliable connection. The ViSe lock combines a positive lock mechanism that produces a high retention force to prevent cable removal with a friction lock that prevents connector floating when mated. The double-lock design ensures rugged performance for devices that are often exposed to high vibration, shaking, or rattling.
The DF58 has a two-point clipping contact design that optimizes the contact force. This lowers contact resistance and reduces temperature rise, further reducing component degradation, and has a rated voltage of 100 V AC/DC and an operating temperature of -55°C to +85°C.
