CCM01 MK5 series smart card connectors feature a sealed card-detection switch and robust construction with an operating life of 500,000 cycles.

They are available in two low-profile options: a 4.0 mm plastic cover with 10 N (max) insertion force or 3.2 mm metal cover with 40 N (max) insertion force, both of which feature a card extraction force of 1N(min) and 10 N (max).

Designed to meet specifications for several different applications, CCM01 MK5 Series connectors are also available with short, recessed contact tails for PCI applications; long contact tails that are exposed to facilitate re-work; and long contact tails with metal pegs for heavy duty 40 N insertion force applications. In addition, the connectors are available with a full range of ESD options, including full, partial, and non-ESD protection.

“The CCM01 MK5 series connectors provide design engineers with a flexible means of adding smart card connectivity to a wide range of identification or transaction functions in either point-of-sale or mobile POS applications,” explained Jean-Michel Bourin, business development director at C&K.  “They also conform to EMV and PCI standards.”

All versions of the RoHS-compliant CCM01 MK5 series smart card connectors feature a 500,000-cycle life and an operating temperature range spanning -40°C to 85°C.
