Vertical Mount Compliant Pin All-Plastic & Metal Shell

Introduction | Features | Part Numbers | Dimensions



Vertical-mount Miniature Ribbon connectors provide I/O directly from printed circuit boards, where the mating face of the connector is in a plane parallel to that of the board.

Compliant-pin connectors terminate without solder to plated-through holes in printed circuit boards. The tail conforms to the hole, providing a gas-tight termination without damaging the plating in the printed circuit board.

The seating cover acts as an insertion tool fixture, and must be left in place until the connector is installed on the pcb. It may also be left on after insertion to serve as a dust cover to protect the connector from contamination.
