Until now, the most cost-effective means of applying a right angled male 41612 connector was to "press-fit" the connector to the PCB after all the other board components had been placed and reflow soldered. A logical addition to the standard press-fit male connectors, these new 'ept' "paste in hole" DIN 41612 THTR (Through-Hole Technology Reflow) types, can be fitted as with all other SMT reflow solder components before processing ~ completely eliminating the "press-fit" step and double handling of the PCB. The connector is manufactured with a high-temp plastic body moulding able to withstand a +260° C lead free soldering process to fulfil the requirements of J-STD-020D (Moisture/Reflow Sensitivity Classification for Non Hermetic Solid State Surface Mount Devices).
This all means less time, fewer production steps, and lower overall costs.
Samples of type C (male) 103-40064TH are available on request from us at In2Connect UK, other pin arrangements and models with boardlocks can be prepared.
DIN connectors are used in various applications with different termination methods. The DIN type C connectors are also available in press-fit and other solder technology.
