iDock Series

Docking Connector Product Offering

Hybrid I/O Modules

More Options. Shorter Leads Times. The iDock Series is compatible with iCon or 90 Series modules. VPC offers dozens of hybrid module configurations to accommodate signal, power, pneumatic, fiber optic, RF, or high speed digital data.

For a list of compatible modules, please see our technical section here.

High Speed Solutions


PCB Options Available

VPC offers PCB configuration for the iDock Series. Since the frame is compatible with iCon or 90 Series modules, it's PCB-ready for VTAC Right Angle or QuadraPaddle Right Angle.

Floating Bushings

In an automated test setting, misalignment can lead to catastrophic failure. VPC docking frames are equipped with floating bushings to provide up to .040" [1.016 mm] of radial float to compensate for alignment. The floating bushings preserve the frames and contacts and are rated for 100,000 mating cycles.

Reversible Frame

The D3/D4 frame is a larger version of the D1 that is capable of two different module types. The reversible frame allows customers to mount iCon modules on one side and 90 Series modules on the other. The guide pins can be unscrewed and moved to the reverse side to accomodate the change.

The D3 configuration is compatible with any of the dozens of 90 Series modules customers use in our larger test systems, while the D4 configuration is compatible with the iCon-style modules used in our iSeries family. Regardless of the configuration chosen, the connector offers high hybrid I/O density in a format that is less than 2U in height. These solutions are designed with floating bushings on both the ITA and receiver frame, providing up to .040" of radial float to realign the frames on engagement.

Both the D3 and the D4 configurations will use the same D3/D4 frame and part number.
