OYSTER BAY, N.Y. – Mill-Max Manufacturing Co. in Oyster Bay, N.Y., is introducing four target connectors with above-board heights of .087 inches for low-profilecircuit board applications that require several connections.

Target connectors are for use in place of SMT pads on a printed circuit board as the mating surface for spring-loaded pins. They provide increased durability and are useful in achieving specific distances between boards.

These connectors are all surface mount, available in single- or double-row packages, and are come with flat or concave target faces. Concave face targets provide additional surface area for mating and can aid in centering/alignment of components and boards fitted with spring-loaded connectors.

Precision-machined pins with an overall length tolerance of plus-or-minus 0.0015 inches help to achieve a co-planarity of 0.005 inches or better for connectors as long as 1 inch. Advanced machining techniques ensure no burr protrusion on either the target face or the surface-mount termination end.

The 319-10-1XX-30-540000 is a single-row connector with a flat target face style; the 319-10-1XX-30-550000 is a single-row connector with a concave target face style; the 419-10-2XX-30-540000 is a double-row connector with a flat target face style; and the 419-10-2XX-30-550000 is a double-row connector with a concave target face style.

Combining target connectors with spring-loaded connectors on opposing boards can make connections between stacked boards or docking stations and devices.

All the pins are gold-plated for environmental protection, durability and conductivity. The connector insulators are molded from high-temperature plastic suitable for most soldering processes, including RoHS environments. All of these products are RoHS compliant.
