FAKRA Connectors Product Roundup
This week’s Product Roundup highlights FAKRA connectors from leading suppliers.
JPC offers a wide range of custom FAKRA cable assemblies using high performance FAKRA and mini-FAKRA connectors. JPC’s FAKRA connectors are ISO 20860-1 certified, RoHS compliant, and fully adhere to USCAR-18 requirements. JPC’s FAKRA connectors and cable assemblies provide superior RF performance and provide excellent connection reliability with a primary and secondary lock system that offers superior anti-vibration functionality. JPC’s Mini-FAKRA Connector Series is a space-conscious, high-performance interface central to the next generation of vehicle applications. JPC’s 50Ω Mini-FAKRA line includes color-coded housings for A, B, C, D, E, F, and Z. Designing-in Mini-FAKRA can help manufacturers reduce space requirements by as much as 80% compared to previous FAKRA products. Custom harness solutions are available for JPC’s entire Mini-FAKRA line. With their interference resistance characteristics, JPC’s FAKRA and Mini-FAKRA cable assemblies support a wide range of applications such as GPS telematics, GPS navigation, mobile communications, RF remote control for keyless entry, infotainment & television, RF Bluetooth, WLAN, and vehicle auxiliary heating. In addition to field proven automotive installations, FAKRA is now increasingly utilized in datacom and industrial applications.
Heilind supplies Molex Custom FAKRA RF Connectors with a sealed, inline solution for automotive cameras, radio antenna, key-less entry, or any application requiring an IP69K rating, along with mechanical key feature and color coding to ensure a proper connection. Molex offers FAKRA connectors with a high-temperature plastic shroud that is fully compatible with lead-free reflow processes. FAKRA Cable Jacks and Plugs meet both American USCAR and German FAKRA automotive standards, while retaining the same high-performing, cost-effective attributes as the original FAKRA PCB series.
JAE’s MX66 Series, for use in applications such as ADAS and connected cars, is the industry’s smallest-in-class waterproof coaxial connector compatible with the standard FAKRA interface and IP69K equivalent performance. MX66 is accepted worldwide as an in-vehicle high-frequency coaxial standard. It supports high-frequency transmission up to 3 GHz (depending on implementation) and is available in different keying options conforming to the FAKRA standard. The different keying and insulator color options prevent mis-mating when using multiple connections on the same module. In addition to the standard straight plug, the right-angle plug can be customized to any one of four different cable exit directions for front, rear, and side camera applications. In addition, it can be used for connections of antennas and communication modules for external communication.
Ensuring maximum electrical and mechanical performance, Rosenberger’s high quality FAKRA connectors feature specific color-coded plastic housings in accordance with the FAKRA coding industry standard. Thirteen distinct mechanical and color codes enable easy identification and unique keying to avoid mis-mating, along with one additional neutral coding. Combining Rosenberger’s turned part production expertise and FAKRA SF stamped and formed technology, these precision-manufactured products are ideally suited for process-safe and fully automated assembly by harness makers and lead to a significant reduction in production costs.
Amphenol’s FAKRA & FAKRA II connectors, supplied by Avnet, are embedded within a plastic housing which features multiple color codes for easy identification and unique keying to prevent mis-mating, FAKRA connectors are designed to perform up to 6 GHz and meet the mechanical and environmental requirements specific to the automotive industry.
