Heavier Gauge Mill-Max SMT Headers
Headers with hi-temp thermoplastic.
Oyster Bay, NY — Mill-Max has added a heavier gauge option to its line of SMT interconnect headers with the introduction of two new connectors. The latest SMT male pin header strips have sturdy 0.030-in. (0.76mm) diameter pin tails which plug easily into a variety of standard Mill-Max mating socket strips. The mating sockets are available in through-hole, right-angle and SMT configurations.

These header and socket combinations are rated at 4.5 amps per pin for a 10°C temperature rise above ambient. The headers have a round stub-tail termination providing the benefit of a reduced solder footprint inside the package outline. The 0.008-in. (0.203mm) floating pin design compensates for the peaks and valleys found in uneven solder paste application on the board surface, promoting good solder joints. The 0.030-in. diameter pins provide extra strength for applications where there is the potential for rough handling, such as for field service repairs or blind mating situations.

With gold-plated pins assembled in high temperature thermoplastic, these headers are suitable for all SMT soldering operations and provide a highly reliable and durable connection. The headers are available in single row, series 349-10-1XX-00-560000, (2-64 positions) or double row series 449-10-2XX-00-560000 (4-64 positions: 2 x 2 x 32.)
