The component’s design features three points of contact, providing an assurance of continuity and robustness previously only available from two-piece assemblies, that are rarely available on tape-and-reel. It is a single-part SMT socket design featuring a low profile of 0.3mm maximum above the PCB.
Available in top and bottom entry versions, it is open-ended, so mating pin depth is not limited. Contacts are gold plated, and operating temperature range spans -50°C to +125°C. Ideal for sensor applications such as gas detection systems, fire alarms and metering systems.
