Harwin, a hi-rel connector and SMT board hardware manufacturer, has announced the launch of 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 provide 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; through hole styles are available in three different colours to facilitate to colour-coding of functions. Devices are rated at 5A, 1500V. They have a contact resistance of 5m? (max), and an operating temperature of -40C to +105degC.
Commenting Product Manager, Graham Cunningham said, “Key applications include high current test points and wire-to-board connections used in a wide range of market segments such as power supplies, instrumentation, traffic signalling, energy and healthcare.”
Devices are immediately available from stock, on low MOQs to enable prototyping and pre-production design.
