A new series of SMT PC Board Connectors designed to transmit signals or power across PC Boards are the latest connectivity devices available from Keystone Electronics Corp.

Quickly and easily set-up, these space-saving SMT connectors have a horizontal orientation mak­ing them uniquely suitable as parallel board-to-board or board-to-component alternative options for power or signal transferring. These new connectors are designed to provide ideal low profile circuit linkage and minimal footprint for high-density, high current PCB packages on power and aluminum backplanes. All PCB soldering applications, including reflow, may be utilized.

Manufactured from Phosphor Bronze with Gold Plate, Connectors are available in a Male (pin), Cat. # 6100 (bulk) or Cat. # 6100TR (tape and reel) and a Female (socket) Cat. # 6102 (bulk) or Cat. # 6102TR (tape and reel).
