I designed, along with Omron product managers, the FPC Sample Variety Connector Kit, 667-04-31. This FPC (Flexible Printed Circuit) kit has Omron Series: XB, XF2J, XF2L, XF2M, XG4, XG5, XG8, XN2, XS5 (Smartclick).

These FPC cable-to-board, panel mount, and standard cable connectors are designed for compact applications such as: sensors, cell phones, digital audio and video players, digital cameras, digital video cameras and DVD players. Included in this kit is a common pitch size of 2.54mm (.100") gold plated XG8 (header plug) connector, all the way down to a very small pitch of 0.4mm (.016”) XB Series. Besides the FPC connectors, 667-04-31 also includes IDC (Insulation Displacement connector) XG4 (box-type plug) and XG5 series.

For easy wire-repair operations requiring no special tooling, the kit contains M12 Smartclick (IP-67 protected water resistant) cables (rotary-lock mating), and the Easy Wire XN2 series connector.

To order additional FPC Sample Variety connector kits, access the kit details page of the specific kit, simply select the green “Check Inventory” tab, enter the kit part number, and select “Search”.  The site will then display the names of the authorized distributor(s), quantity on hand, current stock, etc.

These are just the types of kits engineers, technicians, schools, and home workshops can put to good use. Kits can only be purchased exclusively through the following Waldom Electronics Authorized Distributors: Allied Electronics, Arrow, Avent, Digikey, Future Electronics, Heilind, Master Distributors, Mouser, Newark Electronics, Online Components and TTI.
