Mill-Max has expanded its triple row connector series’ to include long stroke, through-hole mount spring-loaded pins and mating target connectors. These connectors are on 0.100 in. (2.54 mm) grid and available in nine – 96 position configurations. Triple row connectors provide the designer the flexibility of a single connector solution in place of using separate single and double row connectors; this can be useful when the available space allows for additional rows but not a longer connector. The triple row connector also ensures more consistent pin-to-pin spacing and improved perpendicularity across the field of pins.
This 804 series spring-loaded header pins provide 0.045 in. (1.14 mm) of stroke at working travel and 0.090 in. (2.29 mm) maximum stroke. Each contact has a current rating of 2 A continuous, 3 A peak. The precision-machined piston / base and gold-plated components assure a 1 million cycle life durability. The 804 series is designed for manual placement into Ø 0.030±.0003 in. (0.76 mm ± 0.0762 mm) plated through-holes in the circuit board, prior to soldering. The 805 series target connectors provide an excellent gold-plated conductive mating surface for spring-loaded connectors and are designed for through hole solder mounting in a 0.025±0.003 in. (0.63 mm ± 0.0762 mm) hole. This series is offered with a concave face for making contact with our standard 0.042 in. (1.07 mm) diameter spring pin plungers.
Both the 804 and 805 series high-temperature thermoplastic insulators are suitable for wave and reflow soldering processes.
