Mill-Max has introduced shrouded male pin connectors for applications such as frequently mated interconnects and blind mate conditions. These double row connectors come in 4–64-pin configurations and are available in through-hole and surface mount termination styles. The shroud of the connector extends above the pins, affording full protection during handling, assembly, connecting and disconnecting. Further, the shroud limits the amount of misalignment between connectors during mating and de-mating—acting as a guide for blind mate applications. Both the through-hole and surface mount versions are dual row with .100–in. (2.54-mm) spacing pin-to-pin and row-to-row. The connector body is molded from Ryton, a high temperature, durable thermoplastic with excellent thermal stability, chemical resistance and a flammability rating of UL94 V-0. The pins are made of precision-machined brass. The engaging leads are .030 in. (0.76 mm) in diameter, .142 in. (3.61 mm) long and gold-plated to provide a secure and reliable connection. These connectors are RoHS compliant and suitable for lead-free reflow processes.
