Hinged SIM connector are suitable for Mini SIM cards, the hinged style is often used in applications where customers require the SIM card locked in place and not accessible to the end consumer/user.
GCT's range of three products is surface mount, with profiles above the PCB of between 1.80mm - 2.60mm. All parts are fully RoHS compliant and suitable for operating temperatures of -40°C to +85°C.
SIM5060 offers an economical option 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 should 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, which 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 design allows a 1.80mm profile above the printed circuit board.
SIM5055 offers a robust locking frame which is perfect for high vibration environments where the card must stay locked in place.
