Solid and Sponge Self Supported Connectors
The Solid Self-Supporting ZEBRA® connector utilizes a standard ZEBRA® connector element supported by a soft, non-conductive silicone rubber on one or two sides. The silicone rubber creates a larger width that eliminates the need for a holder, and yet the force required for deflection is very low. The standard Solid Self-Supporting ZEBRA® connector has a 0.020”/0.50mm wide ZEBRA® connector element and is available in 8 different widths to accommodate LCD’s with a glass lip overhang of 0.050”/1.27 mm minimum.
Sponge Self Supported Connectors
The Self Supporting Sponge ZEBRA® connector utilizes standard ZEBRA® connector elements supported by a silicone sponge rubber on one or two sides. The silicone sponge creates a larger width that can eliminate the need for a holder, and yet the force required for deflection is very low. The standard Self Supporting Sponge ZEBRA® connector is available in a host of widths to accommodate LCD’s with a glass lip overhang of 0.060”/1.5 mm minimum. The Self Supporting Sponge ZEBRA® connector is used to connect LCD’s to printed circuit boards and eliminates bowing of the printed circuit board due to the low force required to make contact.
