Hinged SIM sockets with profiles between 1.80mm – 2.60mm are suitable for Mini SIM cards. The hinged connector style is often used in applications where customers seek to have the SIM card locked in place and not accessible to the outside world. The range is surface mount, fully RoHS compliant and suitable for operating temperatures of -40°C to +85°C.
GCT offers a range of options, SIM5060 offers options for 6 or 8 contacts with an optional plastic locating peg, while SIM5055 & 5051 are available in 6 contacts without a locating peg.
If a SIM card detection switch is required customers may choose SIM5055, this allows the electronic detection of the card when inserted or removed. In this case the switch position is normally open.
Both SIM5055 & 5060 hold the card in place while the lid is being closed, this is helpful for operators. For low profile applications SIM5051 allows the card to be placed direct onto the contacts, the hinged lid then closes and is locked into place. This allows the 1.80mm profile.
