LCD connectors are a standard in the industry. The connectors are made of carbon-impregnated layers of silicone rubber separated by layers of non-conductive silicon.

These elastomeric connectors conform to the surface of the mating substrates to create a gasket-like seal against adverse environmental conditions as well as being shock and vibration resistant.

Carbon Connector

The use of zero insertion force LCD connectors requires that line centers match on the connected surfaces. Connection densities of 100, 140, and 250 per inch of LCD connectors provide redundant contact in most applications and this fine spacing also prevents the shorting of adjacent contacts.
