MillMax – Target Connector Lineup Expanded with .050″ and .100″ Concave Face Right Angle, HSMT and More

Mill-Max is expanding its selection of target connectors in both our .100″ (2,54mm) and .050″ (1,27mm) grid families. Target connectors are used in place of SMT pads on a PCB as the mating surface for spring-loaded pins. The new series include right angle with concave mating face (.100″ grid), through-hole and surface mount with concave face (.050″ grid) and horizontal surface mount and right angle (.050″ grid) with both flat and concave face options available.

Combining target connectors with spring-loaded connectors on opposing boards can be a simple and convenient solution for making connections between stacked boards or docking stations and devices.

As a complement to our existing .100″ grid right angle target connectors, we are introducing two new series featuring targets with concave faces. The single row series is 399-10-1XX-10-007000 and the double row is 499-10-2XX-10-007000; both are for through-hole mounting.

In our .050″ grid lineup, we have added concave face versions of our SMT and through-hole target connectors: 856-10-0XX-10-002000 (single row, through-hole); 856-10-0XX-30-002000 (single row, SMT); 857-10-0XX-10-002000 (double row, through hole); 857-10-0XX-30-002000 (double row, SMT).

Concave face target connectors provide additional surface area for mating and can aid in centering/alignment of components and/or boards fitted with spring-loaded connectors.

Rounding out the lineup of new target connectors are right angle and horizontal surface mount (HSMT) versions on .050″ grid. These connectors provide low profile options for parallel or right angle board mating arrangements. The HSMT version is especially suited for daisy chaining applications such as those found in LED strip lighting assemblies. These connectors will be available with both flat and concave face options. The right angle series are 856-10-0XX-20-001000 (flat face) and 856-10-0XX-20-002000 (concave face); the HSMT series are 856-10-0XX-40-001000 (flat face) and 856-10-0XX-40-002000 (concave face).

All the pins are precision-machined and gold-plated for environmental protection, durability and reliable conductivity. The connector insulators are molded from high temperature plastic suitable for most soldering processes, including RoHS environments. All of these products are RoHS compliant.
