PCB stacking connectors above 50mm

PCB stacking connectors above 50mm

Planar PCB connection when the PCB spacing is greater than 50mm is a challenge using traditional, economical elevated pin headers and sockets as the length of the pins can cause distortion either during the product manufacturing process or in the final assembly process.

An alternative option is to utilize a low cost PCB in place of the elevated pin header.

The picture shows an example from GCT’s 2.00mm pitch board to board connector range. Receptacle connectors are mounted on both horizontal PCBs. BF100 on the uppermost PCB and a BF120 on the lower PCB.

On the vertical PCB the uppermost connector is a BF060 with the lower part being a custom shrouded version.

This arrangement can be made using parts from GCT’s 1.00, 1.27, 2.00 & 2.54mm pitch ranges.
