GCT further extends Nano SIM connector range with a first to market hinged variant with card detection switch. The all new SIM8060 combines a compact footprint with secure locking lid and card detect functionality.
When maximising the available space on a PCB, Nano SIM connectors are ideal. But when used in applications involving shock and vibration, not all Nano SIM connector types can offer a secure and stable connection. The SIM8060 features a locking lid to hold the Nano SIM card firmly in place. This is in addition to an innovative, normally open card detect mechanism with split contact design, integrated with contact 5 (C5). The circuit is closed once a Nano SIM card is inserted.
"The latest addition to the GCT's Nano SIM range is perfect for rugged environments and fit-and-forget designs." comments Paul Hulatt, GCT Product Manager. "This includes applications such as water measurement solutions and smart metering and grid devices."
