Mill-Max Expands their Target Connectors Line

Mill-Max recently introduced a selection of new target connectors and pins. These components are used in place of SMT pads as the mating surface for spring-loaded pins on a PCB. The newly launched components are offered in .100” (2,54 mm) and 2 mm grid connectors as well as new discrete pins for a broad range of applications.

Combining target connectors with spring-loaded connectors on opposing boards can be an easy and convenient solution for making connections between stacked boards or docking stations and devices.

The new target connectors and pins are available with both through-hole and SMT terminations (SMT products are packaged on tape and reel).  This product family includes choices for connectors with flat or concave face contact surfaces. 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.

As a complement to the existing .100” (2,54 mm) grid through-hole and SMT target connectors, Mill-Max has introduced three new series featuring targets with concave faces. These include single and double row through-hole and double row SMT connectors.

Completing the roll-out of new target components are four discrete target pins well suited for mating with Mill-Max’s larger spring-loaded pins such as the 0861-0 and 0871-0 which have .092” (2,34 mm) diameter plungers.  There are two through-hole pins, one with a flat contact surface and one with a concave contact surface.  These pins are characterized by a large .125” (3,17 mm) diameter face, a .120” (3,05 mm) above board height and a .030” (,76 mm) diameter tail.  The SMT pins have the flat contact surface and concave contact surface options along with the .125” (3,17) diameter face and .120” (3,05 mm) above board height.  These SMT pins are available in bulk or on tape and reel.

All the pins are RoHS compliant, precision-machined and gold-plated. These features ensure environmental protection, durability and excellent conductivity.  The connector insulators are molded from high temperature plastic suitable for most soldering processes including RoHS environments.
