CrimpFlex™ Jumper Cables

Our CrimpFlex™ jumper cables are dedicated to connections from board to board in 2 market standard pitches, 1.27mm and 2.54mm. The FFC cables manufactured by Nicomatic are used for the jumpers are made of two flat copper conductors laminated between two layers of polyester/adhesive insulation.
Our jumpers allow a better retention compared to FFCs used with ZIF/LIF connectors thanks to a large choice of contacts and housings designed for each use. The best contact resistance together with a high mechanical force are a guarantee for a higher reliability and longer life-time of the end product.


General features:

  • UL VW-1 inflammability + UL E235596, 232192, 203388 certificates
  • -20% to -30% lighter vs. bulky discrete wires type AWG26
  • Temperature range -55°C to +105°C (polyester cable)
  • Up to 50 contacts crimped at a time with our presses
  • 90° bending, crimping on the opposite side to left
  • Numerous functions of connection: cale extension, locking etc.
  • Options: shielded cable, polyimide material…
Crimpflex and Medical applications
While designing electronics interconnections in high-end medical systems, manufacturers need to overcome several challenges in terms of : signal integrity for correct transmission of critical data (medical use), reliability of the solution in a harsh environment (numerous cycles of use...

The flat cables used for Nicomatic flexcable jumpers equipped with Crimpflex connectors are made of flat copper conductors both sides adhesive bonded to aluminium foils.


Yes. NICOMATIC provides an interconnect solution which allows to associate the two systems:
- 2SLxx (female housing)
- 1SMxx (male housing)
- 12472 (female contacts)
- 12471 (male contacts)


The contacts hold at 150°C and FFC at 105°C. You need to select a polyimide material for your FFC as the temperature characteristics are much better:
-55°C to +105°C for Polyester cable
-55°C to +125°C for Polyimide cable (higher temperatures achievable upon request)


UL E 235596 / E 232912 / E 203388 (Appliance Wiring Material - Component)


Yes, of course.

You can choose the appropriate contact in our range and bend to the crimping direction (-90°) or to the opposite side of the crimping (+90°).

 


It is possible with our standard part numbering by choosing the R option; the crimping is done on the opposite side to the left, and therefore you can place the housing differently to the other side too.


The cable length is measured from end to end:

- if with housings on each end, then you measure from one housing end to the other

- if with contacts on one side and a housing on the other, then you measure from the cable end where the contact is till the housing end on the other (you do not count the length taken by the contact outside of the cable)


Yes. Depending on your female housing, you will have the option to connect with a series of PCB headers & connectors:

ex. in 2.54mm pitch:

1 row OF/OFH w/ square or round pin headers (eg. 12-17-111-xx-1)

2 row 4Fxx w/ square or round pin headers (eg. 12-17-111-xx-1)

1 row 2Exx w/ walled pin headers (eg. 1Y-10-111-xx-1)

2 row 4Exx w/ walled pin headers (eg. 1Y-20-111-xx-1)

1 row OJ/OJH - OM/OMH - OL/OLH w/ male headers (eg. 1L-10-111-xx-1)

etc.
