Mill-Max Discrete Right-Angle Pins
The new Mill-Max discrete right-angle pins are available in four diameters.
Mill-Max introduced a series of discrete right-angle pins. The 37XX-0 pins are available in four different diameters and are suitable for plugging into receptacles and/or soldering onto printed circuit boards.
Four standard diameters are available: .020″, .025″, .030″, and .040″ (0.51mm, 0.63mm, 0.76mm, and 1.02mm). These sizes satisfy a range of requirements for strength, pitch, board hole size, and current-carrying capacity. The 37XX series is ideal for any situation where a right-angle connection is required.
The pins can be soldered onto a daughtercard and plugged into receptacles or connectors on a motherboard for perpendicular board mating. They can also be combined with right-angle receptacles or connectors to mate boards in parallel (daisy chaining). These brass pins are precision-machined and bent, and the process is closely monitored to produce pins with consistent bends each time. The tips of the pins have a full radius shape, making them easy to plug into board holes or receptacles. The standard plating options are 200 micro inches pure tin, matte finish over nickel, or 10 micro inches gold over nickel (other plating options are available upon request).
