Surface Mount Terminal Blocks feature 3.5 mm pitch.

Press Release Summary:




Available in 2-12 poles, SMarTconn 930-D-SMD Series is constructed for reflow processes used in automated pick and place assembly systems. Floating pin design ensures total co-planarity adaptation to PCB surface and fully eliminates coefficient of thermal expansion mismatch effect. Suited for high-volume production systems, 930-D-SMD Series enables PCB designers to migrate interconnect components from through-hole to genuine SMT, which allows for soldering of components on both sides.

SMarTconn Technology from WECO Delivers Highly Reliable SMT Interconnects to Enhance High-Volume Surface Mount Assembly



930 Series helps ensure total co-planarity adaptation to the PCB surface, eliminates CTE mismatch effect...

MONTREAL, CANADA - WECO's SMarTconn® family of surface mount terminal blocks now includes a 3.5 mm pitch version. Designated the 930-D-SMD Series, these terminal blocks are available in 2-12 poles and are constructed for reflow processes used in today's automated pick and place assembly systems.

The 930 D-SMD is the only 3.5 mm pitch terminal block on the market that embeds a 'floating' property in the terminal contact bodies. The floating pin design ensures total co-planarity adaptation to the PCB surface and fully eliminates the CTE (coefficient of thermal expansion) mismatch effect. SMarTconn surface mount terminal blocks deliver robust solder joints, provide retention of the component to the surface of the PCB, and adaptability of contact pins to planar variations of the PCB.

Ideal for high-volume production systems, the 930-D-SMD Series enables printed circuit board designers to migrate interconnect components from through-hole to genuine SMT (surface mount technology) increasing packaging efficiency, freeing-up PCB real estate, increasing manufacturing yield and reducing manufacturing lead time. The SMarTconn genuine SMT design allows for soldering of components on both sides, further simplifying designs, reducing set-up costs and streamlining processes

"SMarTconn products like the 930-D-SMD Series are engineered to withstand the
constraints of the reflow process by using high temperature resistant materials" said Alex Cristescu, R&D Manager at WECO. "Our SMarTconn technology is optimized for pick
and place assembly by significantly increasing solder joint integrity and eliminating
many quality issues inherently related to the wave solder process."

The 930-D-SMD Series features wire entrance parallel to the PCB. Products are shipped
in tape and reel packaging and are supplied with a pick disc that works with standard pick and place tooling. For complete technical information on the 930-D-SMD Series, visit www.wecoconnectors.com/product.php?id=545.
