Mill-Max is expanding its selection of target connectors in both .100" (2.54mm) and .050" (1.27mm) grid families. Target connectors are used in place of SMT pads on a PCB as the mating surface for spring-loaded pins. The new series include right angle with concave mating face (.100" grid), through-hole and surface mount with concave face (.050" grid) and horizontal surface mount and right angle (.050" grid) with both flat and concave face options available.
Combining target connectors with spring-loaded connectors on opposing boards can be a simple and convenient solution for making connections between stacked boards or docking stations and devices.
As a complement to existing .100" grid right angle target connectors, Mill-Max is introducing two new series featuring targets with concave faces. The single row series is 399-10-1XX-10-007000 and the double row is 499-10-2XX-10-007000; both are for through-hole mounting.
Concave face targets provide additional surface area for mating and can aid in centering/alignment of components and/or boards fitted with spring-loaded connectors.
Rounding out the lineup of new target connectors are right angle and horizontal surface mount (HSMT) versions on .050" grid. These connectors provide low profile options for parallel or right angle board mating arrangements. The HSMT version is especially suited for daisy chaining applications such as those found in LED strip lighting assemblies. These connectors will be available with both flat and concave face options. The right angle series are 856-10-0XX-20-001000 (flat face) and 856-10-0XX-20-002000 (concave face); the HSMT series are 856-10-0XX-40-001000 (flat face) and 856-10-0XX-40-002000 (concave face).
