New Push-Push Micro SIM Connector

GradConn has launched a brand new Push-Push Micro SIM connector, which delivers functionality, combined with cost effective pricing.

Push-Push-Micro-SIM-RGB-72

Customers told us that Push-Push types were too expensive and apart from those cases where product design demanded a push-push version, they would often choose a lower cost connector style, such as push-pull or hinged.  Having listened to those concerns, we acted upon them by pricing CH03-GB at level which makes it a realistic design choice for all applications.

Suitable for 3ff Micro SIM cards the CH03-GB has a 1.50mm profile and measures just 15.75mm x 17.17mm. CH03-GB is available with six or eight contacts and includes a card detect switch feature which allows the user to detect when the card is inserted. It’s rated at 1,500 card insertion cycles and has an operating temperature range of -40° to +85°C. The Micro SIM card is inserted directly, no separate plastic tray is required.

Push-Push type SIM connectors allow a Micro SIM card to be pushed into place, the 2nd push operates a spring which ejects the card, this function removes the need to extract tiny Micro SIM cards by hand. Push-Push technology is normally used in applications where the end user insets a card from outside the equipment, the connector is normally mounted on the edge of a PCB with the mating face accessible via the customer’s panel design.
