The terminal pins have a current rating of over 9A, making them suitable for power applications. Thanks to their compatibility with Harwin’s existing portfolio of single contact sockets, they are straightforward to implement into a mating pair. They can act, for example, as mating pins for the larger SYCAMORE Contacts, or the company’s twin beam surface mount PCB socket.
The Harwin terminal pins are intended for through-board soldering onto 1.6mm thickness PCBs. They are available in versions with heights above the board of 5mm, 8.1mm, 9.5mm, 15.3mm and 21.65mm. As a result, they can accommodate wide variations in board-to-board distances, which are generally to be expected because of production tolerances. This means that other connections on the board that can only accept minimal differences in the spacing between PCBs may be fully maintained, and not put under any additional pressure.
Supplied with either tin or gold finishes, these items exhibit a high degree of durability and ensure a prolonged working lifespan.
