Smart Card connector high cycles durability tested to 500,000 cycles

See video of Global Connector Technology SCC055 landed contact Smart Card connector being put through it’s paces in durability testing.  A ISO/IEC 7810 smart card is inserted 500,000 times.  For exacting applications, such as retail point of sale equipment this high cycle rate is essential.

SCC050 is a PCB mounted, horizontal push-pull smart card connector high cycles.  It has eight contacts and includes a card detection switch set as normally open.  The connector is shielded and contacts a sealed switch which is designed to withstand the very high card insertion and extraction rate.
