3M Introduces 2-mm Latch/Eject Headers

For wire-to-board jobs where space is at a premium, the company's 2 mm x 2 mm pitch latch/eject headers are suitable for a variety of electronics including blade servers, medical, motor-control boards, data-collection devices, and audio components. Roll pins are employed to attach the latches instead of a snap-in system, enabling connectivity in high-vibration applications. The latch uses a design that resists breakage when ejecting the mating assembly. Other features include 13-pin count options from six to 50 positions and a cutout on the connector bodies to accommodate mating connectors with center bump polarization. The components are made from PCT resins, allowing for high-temperature processing in lead-free environments up to +260°C. Additionally, the components offers RoHS-compliant straight- and right-angle plated pins with through-hole tails for boards measuring up to 0.125" thick. A vertical surface-mount version is also available. 3M ELECTRONICS, Austin, TX. (800) 364-3577.
