Molex’s 1.25mm PanelMate™ System Connector

  • 1.25mm pitch Molex PanelMate™ prides itself in being a derivative of the 1.25mm PicoBlade with the same current rating and voltage but with an ultra-low profile design suitable for flat panel displays.
  • The main significance of this type of connector compared with other connectors is its very thin body consuming only a minimum height of 1.90 mm.
  • This is designed for flat LCD displays such as entertainment displays, consumer electronics, personal computer and mobile devices in which sizes can be as low as 10 centimeters and below.
  • Enclosing this connector is a crimp style lock designed by Scondar and a special configuration which prevents users from inverted insertion.
  • Like the 1.25mm pitch connector, it is also suitable for densely crowded electronic devices due to its small diameter wirings and lightweight design.
  • Delivers up to a current rating of 1.0 A per contact for American Wire Gage (AWG) #26, #27, #28, #29,#30, #31 and #32

Offers Less Space, Ultra Low Design Features

Scondar offers this 1.25 pitch Molex PanelMate connector with overall dimensions of 6.2 mm x 9.47 mm x 1.8 mm with a mated height profile of 1.90 mm.

Variation in Number of Circuits

Scondar also offers a variety of models for this connector with different number of circuits ranging from 2 to 16, 20 and 30 which would suit your specific needs.

Durable Product Design

No alloy was used in fastening the wires to the board, but through the use of a crimping method, which makes it more flexible and mechanically stronger. The crimps are well engineered to be air-tight, preventing oxygen and moisture from reaching the metals, causing corrosion.

Thus, the connector can be easily removed from the head without holding the wires. Furthermore, it prevents the cables from being easily disconnected due to entangled routing, heavy loads or vibration

Robust Terminal

Reliable electrical connection, even under conditions of low current and low voltage, is guaranteed with its two point contact design.

Optimized Safety Feature for Electrical Shock Hazard

With its improved product enhancement, the connector has the capability of withstanding voltage of 500 V AC per minute, which means to say that the insulation is sufficient to protect the user from electrical shock, overheating and fire.

Material and Finish

The header contact is made up of copper alloy, tin plated over a phosphor bronze material.

The housing is made of Nylon66 UL94V-0 natural ivory. These housings are available with or without protrusions.

The wafer is made up of Nylon66/46 UL94V-0.

The solder tabs are made up of brass, copper undercoated or tin-plated.

Surface Mount Option with Strong Solder Tabs

The two solder tabs assure that retention of header to PCB connection and act as a strain relief for the SMT solder tails minimizing the chance of solder joints breakage.

Temperature range, insulation and contact resistance

A special feature of the 1.25mm pitch connector is it can withstand lower temperature settings than the 0.8mm pitch connector and 1.0mm pitch connector which makes it more suitable for equipment that experience wide range of temperature difference. The temperature range for this connector is -40 degrees centigrade to +85 degrees centigrade. This range is based on the rise of temperature with increasing current.

Insulation resistance and contact resistance are of 100 M Omega per minute minimum and 20M Omega maximum, respectively.

Superfine wires are usable

The connector can be used with the wires of AWG within the range of #26 to #32. This applies to wire diameters as small as 0.22mm to 0.4mm. Superfine wires such as these can help the routing job.

Shrouded Header

The pin header of the connector is wrapped with a thin plastic guide box around it good for preventing cable connection mishaps and it also provides good guidance for the mating connector.

Twin U-slot/Tuning Fork Style Contact Design

Twin U-slot section or twinaxial cable or tuning-fork style has a pair of insulated conductors where the conductors are run parallel with one another. This is commonly used in high speed balanced-mode multiplexed transmission in large computer systems, in which the signals are carried by both conductors in a U-shaped configuration. This ensures reliable connection and provides greater noise immunity.

Item Packaging

The housing and wafer package are available as 1000 Pcs per bag.

For terminal purpose the available package offers 15,000 pcs per bag.

For wire harness, you can ask for custom materials with 1000 Pcs/bag.

Compact and Denser Design

As compared with the Molex 1.25mm PicoBlade, the 1.25mm PanelMate is manufactured with lesser infill housing making it denser, more flexible and less rigid than the PicoBlade connector.

With its very thin receptacle design, 1.25 mm pitch PanelMate serves as the best choice for flat panel displays.

Capable of Delivering High Resolution for Portable Gadgets Displays

Since its popularity in flat panel displays became a rave in the modern consumer electronics industry, the 1.25mm PanelMate connector plays a vital role in producing high-resolution displays in portable consumer products such as tablets, smartphones, digital cameras, camcorders, point-and-shoot cameras, and pocket video cameras.

Safe and Reliable

1.25mm pitch connectors ensure safety, system protection and performance with its bonded metallic conduits and multiple grounding points preventing fire hazards, component damage, overheating and possible electrocution.

The product does not contain restricted chemicals in concentrations not complying with ROHS standards. Thus, for its components, the products can be worked upon at high temperatures required by lead-free soldering.
