Electrical Connectors

Surface Mount Pins suit high-reliability PCB applications.

Specified with tin/lead or gold finish, Surf-Shooter SMT pins come in sizes that range from 0.025 in. square pins to 0.080 in. round posts. Design employs capillary action of reflowing solder to promote solder joint strength and interconnection reliability. Specifically, capillary action contributes to thinner solder layer, creating higher retention force between pin base and solder pad. It also...
