Higher input/output density and signal speeds demand management of EMC. The SOFIX® front I/O interconnect system is comprised of right-angle headers and cable plugs that are suitable for the distribution of power and signals.
SOFIX® connectors are fully shielded down to the PCB level to provide EMC shielding at the sub-rack/front panel level. When used with appropriate cables, the emission level from these links is well below IEC/CISPR 22 and FCC part 15 class B requirements.
SOFIX® power connectors feature a robust design and are suitable for applications in systems with slot pitch as low as 15mm. The design rules for the SOFIX® family of I/O connectors are derived from the Metral system (IEC 61076-4-104). As such, the SOFIX® system can be used as complement to the Metral backplane connector family or applied as dedicated I/O solution.
