Extremely flexible and customised flat conductor connectors

FIX JUMPER system: extremely flexible flat conductor connectors that combine the properties of a flat conductor ribbon cable and a plug connector’s connection pin. The smooth and notch-free transition from the flat conductor to the round connection pin guarantees a break-proof junction.


  • High vibration and bending resistance, low processing requirement thanks to ready-to-use delivery and simultaneous soldering of all terminal points in a soldering bath
  • Optional single side solder joint combined with plug connectors
  • Material: optional - polyester, Nomex, Kapton, Pen
  • Spacing: metric from 1.00 to 5.00 mm/ inches from 1.27 to 5.08 mm (including mixed)
  • Connections: soldered straight and angled, SMD

FIX ZIF system: see JUMPER system, but for application together with 0 force plug connectors (ZIF) provided by various manufacturers by the defined stripping of the contact area. Available on both sides or on just one side in combination with a solder or SMD connection on the other side.

FIX CRIMP system: see JUMPER system, but for the efficient assembly of crimp contacts (socket/pin/soldered contacts) provided by various manufacturers. Available on both sides or on just one side in combination with a solder/SMD/ZIF connection on the other side.

Other available variations:
FIX Power system/FLEX system/FLEX Automotive system/FLEX Lux system
