Keystone Electronics Corp. (Astoria, NY) offers a new quick-fit female terminal, specifically designed for surface mount applications with the ability to accept tabs from a vertical or horizontal entry position. This unique design simplifies the board design process and allows flexibility in board layout and component placement. Features include the following:
- A stable tri-leg design, providing increased PCB mounting strength. The design also serves to keep terminals perpendicular to the PCB so that the relative position is maintained during, and permanently following the reflow soldering process.
- Manufactured from Brass with Tin Nickel plating, these rugged terminals are made to hold up under repeated mating cycles. This universal terminal accepts .110” (2.8mm) to .250” (6.4mm) male quick fit terminals.
- The terminal is supplied in bulk under PN 3586, and on tape and reel with Kapton tape added to the top surface for vacuum pick and place, request PN 3586KTR.
- Availability is from stock through Keystone’s global distribution network, and online ordering is also accommodated.
