Distance between connector pin centrelines. For dual row products pitch defines distance between both pins and rows. Note 0.8 x 1.2mm (0.31” x .047”) is the exception to this rule.
Termination method of soldering connector onto PCB.
Socket contact type
Searches female connectors only. Two contact types: ‘Leaf Spring’ and ‘Tuning Fork’, both offer two points of contact with mating header pins. ‘Tuning Fork’ is the lower cost option, with higher insertion and extraction force, suitable only for top entry applications. ‘Leaf Spring’ is lower force contact and suitable for top, bottom & dual entry applications. For higher number of mating cycles choose ‘Leaf Spring’.
Board to Board Connectors
Board to board connectors are available in 0.8x1.2mm (.031"x.047"), 1mm (.039"), 1.27mm (.050"), 2mm (.079") and 2.54mm (.100") pitch ranges. Board to board have options of surface mount or through hole mount types.
Board to board connectors (receptacles and plugs) have elevated options and can be single, dual, triple or quad rows, straight or right angle orientation.
Board to Board headers and sockets offer customer specifiable pin lengths, varying profile heights, number of contacts from 02 to 100+, with optional locating pegs available.
Technical drawings are offered for all parts.
Board to board connectors are RoHS compliant.
