Through-hole headers for SMT processing

Through-hole headers for SMT processing

High-temperature plastic connectors for solder-reflow processing

Phoenix Contact offers PCB headers well suited for automated assembly processing. Using the principles of through-hole reflow (THR) technology, each header has through-hole pins, offering increased mechanical stability to the printed circuit board. The plastic body withstands the high temperatures associated with a solderreflow process. These parts are available in bulk packaging, as well as tape-and-reel, making them ideal for integration into your current PCB processing, whether it is wave solder or reflow.

Features and benefits

  • Liquid-crystal polymer (LCP) construction removes need for expensive dry-bag packaging
  • High-temperature plastic allows for use in reflow-soldering process
  • Connector design allows for continued use in wave-soldering operations
  • Pin positional tolerance of +/- .1 mm makes the connector well suited for automatic placement
  • Optional flange mates with both screw and lock-and-release plug connector for secure connection

Technical data

  • Rated up to 16 A and 300 V UL
  • 5.0-mm and 5.08-mm pitch
  • 2 to 24 positions per connector

Potential applications

  • Automation technology
  • Measurement and control
  • Energy technology
