Mill-Max 2mm Pitch Spring-Loaded Connectors
Mill-Max 2mm pitch spring-loaded connectors offer durability and space savings for board-to-board or device-to-board connections.
Mill-Max has expanded its line of spring-loaded products with a 2mm pitch spring-loaded connector. As always, real estate is at a premium in electronic packaging as designers demand tighter-pitch interconnects that deliver high-quality performance. These spring-loaded connectors (SLCs) are an appealing option that combines both durability and space-saving qualities. For board-to-board or device-to-board connections, these 2mm spring-loaded connectors are a practical solution.
The connectors feature spring pins with a working travel of .0275″ (0.7mm) and a maximum travel of .055″ (1.4mm). With a base diameter on the pins of .056″ (1.42mm) and a plunger diameter of .032″ (.81mm) there is adequate space for laying out the PCB pads and traces on both the solder and mating sides of the connectors. The initial, uncompressed height of the connectors is .295″ (7.5mm).
These new SLCs are offered in single-row (series 836-22-0XX-30-001101) and double-row (series 838-22-0XX-30-001101) versions. Standard availability is two to 10 positions for single-row versions and four to 20 positions for the double-row version. Both series are available in tubes or on tape and reel, which has pick-and-place vacuum clips to facilitate automated assembly.
The new 2mm pitch spring-loaded connectors maintain the quality and reliability of current Mill-Max spring pin connectors by utilizing the same precision-machined components and internal spring components. Gold-plated components and springs ensure the highest conductivity, corrosion resistance, and durability. The spring-loaded pins used in these connectors have a current rating of 2A continuous use (3A maximum). The high-temperature plastic housing is suitable for all soldering processes and the connectors are RoHS-compliant.
