Although designed for use in conjunction with AVX’s new 2.5-mm no-wire-stop 70-9296 series STRIPT poke-home contact, the new 10-9296 Series BTB pin jumpers from AVX Corp. are drop-in compatible with competitors’ jumpers and offer a shortened insulator, a unique insulator geometry that achieves watertight connections, and the only ~38-mm pin length currently available.
This new series of pin jumpers is designed for board-to-board (BTB) and module-to-module connections in solid-state lighting (SSL) and other low-pin-count industrial applications. When used in conjunction with the new 2.5-mm 70-9296 Series STRIPT horizontal, poke-home contact without a wire stop — which is both the first industrial poke-home connector available without an integral wire stop and, currently, the only industrial poke-home connector with a 2.5 mm profile — the new 10-9296 Series BTB pin jumpers are allowed to pass straight through the contacts, completely unrestricted, until the final, user-defined mating dimension is achieved.
Unlike traditional BTB pin jumpers — which are made to mate with traditional connectors and are thus closed on the back end, limiting the depth to which a pin can travel and restricting the amount of BTB or module-to-module mating tolerance that the jumper can absorb — the new 10-9296 Series BTB pin jumper/709296001025016 contact combination absorbs the maximum amount of component and assembly tolerances during the mating process, effectively eliminating the PCB and housing tolerance stack-up issues common to traditional connector systems in linear and coplanar applications.
The new 10-9296 Series BTB pin jumpers are rated for 9 A, 300 Vac based on contact spacing, three-cycle durability, and operating temperatures spanning -40° to 105°C, and are currently available in two different pin lengths: 26 mm to support linear BTB connections and 38.15 mm to support linear module-to-module connections in which the contacts are embedded within plastic housings. Both variants have a standard 1 mm diameter pin that is mating-compatible with competitors’ traditional 4 mm-pitch poke-home connectors, as well as the company’s own 70-9296 Series 2.5 mm STRIPT contacts — but offer two clear advantages: a shortened insulator (just 5.1 mm) and a unique insulator geometry with dual-chamfered ends that provide a watertight connection when seated within a corresponding housing cavity.
“Our new 10-9296 Series BTB pin jumpers are very user- and application-friendly, enabling variable final mating positions for maximum tolerance absorption in SSL and other low-pin-count industrial applications when combined with our new no-wire-stop 2.5 mm 70-9296 Series STRIPT poke-home contacts,” said Tom Anderson, product manager at AVX. “They are also currently the only BTB jumper on the market to offer a 38.15 mm length.”
The new 10-9296 Series BTB pin jumpers have a glass-filled Nylon PA-66 insulator approved to UL94 V-0 and lead-free, tin-over-nickel-plated brass contacts. UL approval is in progress, and is expected this month. AVX is also currently sampling a two-position version of the BTB pin jumpers, and expects to announce production inventory by May.
