Product Release:

Stronger than your average Hinged Micro SIM Connector

You can be assured that all GCT products have undergone rigourous tests to guarantee product quality and reliability that is second to none. It’s what our reputation is built on and long may it continue as we push the performance of our connectors and cable assemblies.

For one of our latest products, the SIM7200, this is no exception. The hinged microSIM connector has been subject to various tests to prove how tough it really is. If you don’t believe us, take a look at the durability test video!

For a start, it is capable of over 5000 mating cycles, which includes the contact, hinge and locking mechanisms of the SIM connector.

Mechanical shock testing subjected the connector to a total of 18 shocks at 490m/s2 accelleration across 3 difference axis, further demonstrating strong resiliance to drops and knocks.

Additionally, vibration tests saw the connector with a SIM card inserted exposed to a total of 15 minutes vibration from 10 to 55 to 10Hz frequency at a 1.52mm amplitude.

These are just a few of the tests that the SIM7200 has completed and sucessfully passed in accordance to EIA standards, demonstrating why it is stronger than your average hinged micro SIM connector. Full test details can be found on the Product Specification on our website here.

Here at GCT, we're committed to offer our customers high quality products that will meet their application requirements completely. And when you need something a bit more customised, we can assist with that too – just get in touch and we will be more than happy to help on your next project.
