3M Introduces New .100 Wire to Board Connectors
AUSTIN, Texas--3M introduced three new series of .100" wire-to-board connectors, the D89 Series Wiremount sockets, the Four-Wall Header D2500 Series and the Latch/Eject Headers D3000 Series. These new products feature 10µ" (micro inch) gold plated contacts, which provide for maximum economy while retaining 3M's high standards for performance and reliability, making them ideal for high-volume, price-sensitive applications. Polarization slots provide for quick connections while minimizing misalignments.
The D89 Series .100" Pre-Assembled sockets offer an optional plastic strain relief to minimize stress on the socket/cable termination. The low-profile of the Four-Wall Header D2500 Series offers a lower height requirement while the optional retainer clip or snap-in latch provides added stability for high vibration or impact-prone applications. The Latch/Eject Header D3000 Series features a latch/ejector for added stability during high vibration or impact-prone applications in addition to reducing the risk of damage from manually disengaging the cable assembly.
All three new series of .100" wire-to-board connectors meet EU RoHS requirements and are labeled in accordance with China RoHS marking standard SJ/T 11364-2006. The boardmount products are manufactured with high temperature PCT thermoplastic material designed to meet heat resistance and moisture sensitivity of JEDEC J-STD-020C and are suitable for lead-free solder processing up to 260oC. They are available in bulk packaging for maximum economy or pre-assembled for high-efficiency termination.
