Direct connection to the PCB


New SKEDD technology reduces component and process costs

Middletown, Pa. – Phoenix Contact’s new SDC 2.5 connectors plug directly into the PCB via through-contacted bore holes. This eliminates the need for an additional header and the soldering process, reducing component and process costs.

The connectors feature Phoenix Contact’s “SKEDD” plug-in technology, for easy PCB mounting without tools. The geometry of SKEDD contacts is similar to press-in technology. Each contact pin is made up of two flexible halves that easily adjust to plated through-holes on a PCB. When the contact is inserted into a through-hole, the integrated body-bound rivets lock the connectors in place to form a vibration-resistant connection.
