3.96mm Pin Headers and Sockets

High current 3.96mm pitch spacing pin headers and sockets are available in single row, straight, surface mount configuration.

High temperature 3.96mm (.156") pitch connectors withstands high temperature solder processes up to 280°C (IR Reflow) with LCP or Nylon 6T insulators..

Operating temperature is -40°C to + 105°C with a current rating of 7.9 amps

  • SMT mount type
  • Headers offer customer specifiable pin lengths
  • Thicker pins than standard at 1.14mm²
  • Larger pitch pin spacing allows for improved heat dissipation

Pin headers and sockets are available in tube packaging, with elevated headers also available in tube and plastic box packaging. For automatic pick and place processing, we offer caps for headers and sockets, these options are available in tube packaging.

All 3.96mm pin headers and sockets are fully RoHS and Reach compliant.

  • Pitch
    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.
  • Gender
    Male headers with exposed pins and female sockets with insulated non-exposed contacts.
  • Mount Type
    Termination method of soldering connector onto PCB.
  • PCB Orientation
    Defines the orientation which a connector sits on the PCB. Vertical (straight) is 90° to the PCB, right angle (horizontal) is 180° to the PCB. Use the appropriate mating connector pairs for parallel, co-planar and right angle PCB mating configuration.
  • Number Of Rows
    Defines PCB connector number of rows. GCT offer single in line (SIL), dual in line (DIL), triple in line (three rows) and quad in line (four rows) options.
  • Elevated?
    Products which achieve a greater space between PCB’s, normally used in parallel PCB stacking applications to achieve a desired height. Elevated headers normally have two insulators, while elevated sockets use an insulator block and modular insulator extenders.
  • Locating Peg
    Plastic locating pegs to hold the connector in place during solder process and may provide extra strength post soldering. Also known as plastic post.
  • Profile
    The profile of connectors above the PCB. Vertical connectors denote the stacking profile in parallel PCB applications, right angle connectors denotes height above the PCB.
  • Insulator Colour
    Standard board to board connector range is black, white insulators used for White Lite range for Solid State Lighting (SSL) applications.
  • Header Square Pin Size
    Displays the size of the header square pin/post, as connector pitch reduces sq. post size reduces too, one reason for lower current carrying capability of smaller pitch PCB connectors. Note: Two options in 1.27mm (.050”) pitch. Female sockets clearly state which header square pin size they mate with.
    • 0.30mm
    • 0.30mm x 0.42mm
    • 0.40mm
    • 0.46mm
    • 0.50mm
    • 0.64mm
    • 1.14mm2
