ERNI (Richmond, VA) has developed an ultra-compact 1.27mm pitch single row connector system that delivers high current density. The MiniBridge™ wire-to-board connector features a high-temperature IDC wire termination and is rated up to 4A per contact. The MiniBridge is available in vertical or right angle terminations with ribbon cable or discrete wire options that are suitable for up to 24 AWG cable. The superior versatility of the MiniBridge connector system can be obtained as individual components or in a complete cable assembly from ERNI’s ISO-certified facilities.

The MiniBridge connector system is available in 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12 positions with an air and creepage distance of 0.4mm. Ideal for lighting applications, the MiniBridge connector is available in neutral white, which discourages shadows that can be caused by black connector bodies in light fixtures. The MiniBridge connectors are fully compatible with higher temperature RoHScompliant SMT soldering profiles, and their construction incorporates board hold-downs for maximum retention and vibration protection on printed circuit boards.
