I-PEX’s Wire-to-Board Connector Series Expands with New ISH® 18 (2024/May/16)


With the implementation of advance driver assistance systems (ADAS) and other technologies in society, automobiles are undergoing a major transformation at a rapid pace. Automobiles are becoming computers on wheels, and the various electronic devices installed are becoming increasingly sophisticated and complex. At the same time, improving fuel/electricity efficiency and safety performance, and reducing the weight of automobiles are major themes in the automotive industry.
To meet these market needs, I-PEX is expanding the ISH® connector lineup with the new ISH® 18 connector. This new product will be exhibited at the Automotive Engineering Exposition 2024 YOKOHAMA, to be held at Pacifico Yokohama from May 22-24, 2024.


Product Features

ISH®18 is a 0.5 mm tab-width, wire-to-board connector with high resistance to heat and vibration. It has a narrower 1.8 mm pitch compared to our existing ISH® connectors which have a 2.0 mm pitch. The unique terminal shape on the ISH®18 ensures low-insertion forces, even with a high-pin count of 40 pins. 

To help reduce the number of system components and weight, multiple harnesses may be consolidated into a single harness while maintaining mating workability. And, the ISH®18 withstands 125 ℃ temperatures, as do the other products in the ISH® series.
