Deltek, the electromechanical solutions division of Knowles Electronics, Elgin, Ill, has released Models 9200 and 9201 battery door style programming flex strips. The Model 9200 is a replacement flex strip that can be used with existing press-fit modules. The Model 9201 incorporates a Deltek Model 0009 four-pin socket at one end to accommodate a standard micro-plug/mini-DIN style programming cable. Its design offers superior resistance to lead fracture as a result of torsion or flexion during use. DelTek does not seal the contact ends in kapton (popular among existing products) eliminating the need for overprinting of gold-plated contacts, known to be susceptible to contact fracture through normal use. Delteks design provides a consistent and reliable contact point and minimizes contact resistance. (847) 841-3000; www.deltekelectronics.com; www.knowles.com.
