Press-Fit Contacts For Elbow and Straight PCB Sockets

May 12, 2020
Lemo’s new harpoon earthing pins enable pre- installing easily various receptacles/socket.

The advantage of these new press-fit contacts is the gain of time while doing the pre-assembly, no need to place the washers and screw 4 times the M1.6 screws. Simply align the connector and push firmly. This pre-assembly will enable the assembly house or final customer to turn the printed circuit board (PCB) upside down and run the parts through the reflow soldering oven. This product is planned for elbow and straight PCB sockets of 0B & 1B series. The current design works specifically with 1.6mm thickness boards.
