Zif socket and cable


Recommended Posts

  • 2 weeks later...

Can't find the FCI 59453-08211ECHLF zif socket in stock anywhere. I did find what looks like a compatible socket for the cable in a bottom contact with the FCI 59453-08111DCHLF http://www.mouser.com/Search/ProductDetail.aspx?R=59453-081110EDHLFvirtualkey64910000virtualkey649-59453081110EDHLF . Was planning on putting 2 of these together back to back and using an FPC jumper cable such as the Molex 98266-0083 http://www.mouser.com/Search/ProductDetail.aspx?R=98266-0083virtualkey98266-0083virtualkey538-98266-0083 to extend the display. I realize I will have to notch the ends of the cables for socket fit. Got some of the sockets and various lengths of cable in my Mouser cart. Could someone be so kind as to verify that the FCI 59453-08111DCHLF is compatible with the display cable?

Mundy, if you find a set of parts that work, please post a definitive list so others can follow your path.

I bought the parts listed above the cables are long like 5" they do have shorter ones the parts do fit but haven't powered the device on to see if it's reading it

What a pain in the butt!!! The connectors are way to small for me to solder together with my iron, the solder likes to bridge I was able to solder it this way. It works. my boards will be here tomorrow I'll still post a pic of the screen working on the ribbon. I need to see about a high doller soldering iron

Laguz75,

Take a look at this Hakko clone from Hobby King, (some links below) I got one recently and I'm very impressed with how well it works, cost me $25 shipped to New York from their North East USA warehouse. I picked up some more tips in assorted sizes, it comes with a very fine tip which would be great for those zif's, but you'll need a larger tip for wire 20 ga and above, you can get tips from amazon. Also there is a link to a youtube video showing side by side comparison to this station and a real Hakko, the guy opens the box and shows the insides of both of them. I was quite surprised just how heavy the unit is and it looks like they made a couple improvements since that video. The temperature control is very accurate, I checked it against my Fluke meter with a Fluke thermocouple, I didn't have to adjust mine but there is an adjustment for the temp if needed. For the price, it's a pretty good station and works very well, I soldered some 12 ga wires to a 200 board and the 510 a couple days ago and had no problems getting a very impressive solder joint, key was a larger tip that wouldn't cool as soon as it touched the joint, and good no clean flux.

so it's working? what kind of length are you trying? 

I bought the wrong ones there like 5" but it looks like I can cut them down to the size I need. I am going to try soldering 24 gage wire on just to see if I can I might have a ideal for making a detachable face plate like some car stereos have. Once my boards come in that will be the real test. I have a 200 but the screen holder is glued on so I couldn't try out the ribbons.

so are you saying that the screen works fine with your 5" extension? you played with it a bit no glitches or anything? like you said would be really cool as a better quick disconnect than directly at the board with the ziff. using a ziff to pin adapter would open up a lot of possibilities with board installation too.

I'm waiting for my 40 and 200 to get here today (about 2pm cst) so I can try it out and see if it does work
