Harwin’s 2mm low-profile test sockets provide excellent electrical performance.

Harwin Test SocketsHarwin launched a new range of PCB-mounted, dual-entry test sockets that accept a 2mm pin. These low-profile devices measure only 5.16mm max above the board when mounted, and feature gold-plated contacts to ensure excellent electrical performance.

The dual-entry sockets facilitate easy access. Devices feature a flat upper surface to enable automated pick-and-place assembly. Both SMT and PTH devices are available: Surface-mount versions are supplied on tape-and-reel packaging for automated production or loose for prototyping; thru-hole styles are available in three different colors to facilitate color coding of functions. Devices are rated at 5A, 1500V. They have a contact resistance of 5mΩ (max), and an operating temperature of -40C to +105°C.

“Key applications include high current test points and wire-to-board connections used
