  • Benefits

  • Reduction of press-in force by approx. 25%, using the new „Eye of the Needle' pressfit zone. This leads to lesser strain towards the PCB.
  • 100% controlled quality of the pins due to consequent usage of Automated Optical Inspection during the manufacturing process.
  • Partial and mixed loading possible.
  • Available termination lengths:
  • Solder: 2.5 mm; 3.7 mm; 4.0 mm; 13.0 mm; 17.0 mm
  • Pressfit: 2.9 mm; 4.0 mm; 5.5 mm; 13.0 mm w. Transfer Zone; 17.0 mm w. Transfer Zone
  • Wire Wrap: 13.0 mm; 17.0 mm
  • Dimensions of insulation bodies remain unchanged for backwards compatibility.
  • Fixation clip or retaining loop for efficient mounting of the connector when soldering is selectable in all positions.
  • Solder stop versions, preventing a rising of the solder up into the housing, available on request for type B and C connectors.
  • Transfer zone contacts are selectable for all versions.
  • A simple coding mechanism, by using coding strips, is standard on all type B, C, E and CD connectors.
  • The THR versions are made of a high temperature resistant material which makes them suitable for reflow soldering.
