C&K Components unveil a range of smart card connectors offering PCI and PCI-ready security features specifically designed to ease the integration of security devices around and below the connector targeted for use in transaction and POS (point-of-sale) applications.

The PCI security connectors offer additional accessories that are integrated on the connector in order to prevent unauthorised access to the data contacts and to detect any connection attempt.

The CCM01 and CCM02 Series devices feature a sealed, normally-open card detection switch and a card guide with a chamfered opening in the card entry slot to improve the card guidance. Maximum card insertion force is 40N and contact force ranges from 0.20N–0.5N. Minimum (EMV compatible) mechanical life for the 8-contact and PCI ready CCM01 Series connector is 500,000 cycles. The 8-contact and PCI ready CCM02 Series connector also features an anti-piracy system to provide a PCI variant and has a minimum mechanical life of 500,000 cycles.

The smart card connectors are RoHs, feature high-temperature thermoplastics and are compatible with automatic pick-and-place equipment and lead free SMT reflow soldering process.

The C&K Components connector catalogue detailing the full range of smart card connector products and specifications are available at the company's website. Typical pricing for the smart card connectors range from Rs.18.26 ($0.40)–Rs.273.97 ($6) each depending on type and quantity.
