OYSTER BAY, N.Y. – Mill-Max Manufacturing Corp. Inc. in Oyster Bay, N.Y., is introducing a target connector on 4-millimeter pitch for rugged applications with a flanged base and hardware options for secure mounting.

This target connector series is the mating half to the recently released 858 series ruggedized spring loaded connector.

Offered in two to six positions in through-hole, SMT, and SMT with alignment pin versions, this target connector series features a high temperature molded Nylon 46 housing that is compatible with RoHS soldering processes.

Mounting tabs integrated into the housing provide a means for secure attachment to the circuit board or product assembly. The tab holes may be specified with threaded inserts or left empty for other hardware requirements.

The flanged base provides stability for the connector. The pins are plated with 10 micro inches hard gold over nickel for durability and excellent conductivity.

Additionally, these connectors are offered with either a flat or concave face on the mating side of the pins. The flat face style is 0.082 inches in diameter providing target area for the 0.05-inch-diameter mating plunger.

Concave face targets provide additional surface area when mated and can aid in centering and alignment of components fitted with spring loaded connectors during manual engagement.

The target pins employ high-speed precision turning with tight tolerances. The overall pin length tolerance of plus-or-minus one-one-thousandth of an inch, combined with established in-house manufacturing and assembly techniques produce a connector with co-planarity of 0.005 inches or better.

Advanced machining processes ensure there are no cut-off burrs on the face or SMT base of the pins to impede the electrical connection and attachment to the circuit board.
