Mill-Max Expands its Line of Solder Cup Spring-Loaded Pins

Mill-Max Expands its Line of Solder Cup Spring-Loaded Pins

Mill-Max is proud to announce a new addition to its spring-loaded pin selection with the introduction of the 0973-0-15-20-77-14-11-0.  This new offering has a solder cup designed to accept up to 20 AWG wire, has a maximum stroke of .080” (2,03 mm) and can be used at a minimum spacing of .100” (2,54 mm).

The shoulder and barb features are located and designed to allow easy and reliable assembly into connector housings. The terminating wires may be passed through a connector housing and soldered to the cup of the 0973.  Once the soldering is complete the wires can now draw the 0973 spring pins into the housing and the spring pins can be secured with the press-fit.  With the pins securely pressed into the housing, the shoulder acts as a stop, retaining the pins in the event the cable or wires are strained.   The shoulder will also prevent push out of the spring pin if the plunger end is over compressed.  These design features make the 0973 ideal for cable and bulkhead style connector assemblies.

The 0973 spring pin has a working travel of .040” (1,02 mm) and a maximum mechanical travel of .080” (2,03 mm).  There is a hard stop incorporated to prevent over compression and minimize the risk of damage to the spring.  The high retention force press-fit of the solder cup to the body of the spring pin insures the reliability of the component during soldering and assembly operations.

Gold-plated brass components and beryllium copper springs ensure the highest conductivity, corrosion resistance and durability.  The spring-loaded plunger is suitable for mating with gold- plated PCB pads or Mill-Max target pins and connectors.  For wire termination target pins consider Mill-Max 3024-0-01-15-00-00-03-0 and for connectors, see the single row 330-10-1XX-00-240000 and double row 430-10-2XX-00-240000.

FX23 Series board-to-board connector provides fast transmission speed with ± 0.6mm maximum floating in XY directions…

HIROSE’S HYBRID CONNECTOR COMBINES FLOATING CONTACT ALIGNMENT WITH HIGH SPEED TRANSMISSION

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS — April 13, 2016 — Hirose, a leader in the development of innovative connector solutions, has developed a hybrid power and signal board-to-board connector that features high-speed transmission capability up to 8 Gbps and a highly reliable floating contact mechanism that simplifies assembly. The FX23 Series is designed for a wide range of high-speed applications including medical devices, office imaging equipment, measurement equipment, industrial computer systems, automotive navigation and audio systems, broadcast equipment, base station transceivers, industrial machinery and more.

A member of Hirose’s FunctionMAX family of high-speed board-to-board connectors, the 0.5mm pitch FX23 Series connector supports high-speed applications with a specialized contact structure that utilizes a ground contact between adjacent differential pairs to reduce crosstalk. In addition, this contact structure provides superior impedance matching, even with short rise times.

The connector’s floating design offers a degree of play between the contacts during mating, allowing the board-to-board connector to absorb alignment errors up to ± 0.6mm in X and Y axis directions. By self-centering in both the X and Y directions, the floating structure eliminates mechanical stress at the SMT leads. This unique floating contact structure is particularly convenient when mating multiple connectors on the same printed circuit board, saving significant assembly time and costs.

The hybrid power and signal connector has two built-in power contacts located on each side of the FX23 Series connector housing that provide a power rating of 3 Amps per pin. The hybrid structure also reduces the number of pins required, saving space. Available in right angle and parallel versions, the FX23 Series is offered in 20, 40, 60, 80, 100 and 120 positions.

“The FX23 Series’ floating feature ensures correct and safe mating, reduces the stress on mounted parts, decreases solder cracking, and enhances reliability,” said Rick van Weezel, Vice-President of Sales and Marketing for Hirose Electric USA. “Combining this feature with high transmission rates provides a highly functional solution for demanding applications.”

The FX23 Series connector uses a single metal post that allows mounting to the top and bottom sides of the PCB, as standard double metal posts interfere with mounting on both sides. Pin-in-hole intrusive reflow can be applied and reduces the manual soldering process of the metal posts. In addition, the FX23 Series can accept coating agents.
