New Board-In, Vertical-Type IARPB® Connector from I-PEX (2024/May/16)


A vertical type board-in connector is being added to the I-PEX IARPB® connector series, which has been well received in the automotive market due to its light weight and compact design. 

Recently, functions such as adaptive driving beam (ADB) have been added to headlamps, and there is a continuing demand for space saving components.
To address this demand, we have developed the vertical type board-in connector. This product improves space efficiency by routing the wire harness vertically to the board, which may increase the degree of freedom in circuit board design and helps customers further reduce the weight and size of their designs.

This new product will be shown in the I-PEX booth at the Automotive Engineering Exposition 2024 YOKOHAMA, to be held at Pacifico Yokohama, May 22-24, 2024. 

Product Features

The Vertical Type IARPB® is a board-in connector that exhibits high-vibration resistance due to the bossed structure of the housing. The housing structure has excellent visibility of the terminals after mounting. Additionally, the entire circumference of the terminal is tin-plated to ensure stable solder wettability.
