For low profile IO applications, this surface mount SIP socket strip is assembled parallel to its board surface. It is ideal for placement near the board edge for easy access test connections and creating pluggable adapter modules which can sit perpendicular to the motherboard, effectively conserving precious board real estate. The precision-machined brass alloy receptacle press-fit with a #47 contact clip accepts mated pin diameters between 0.025-0.037 in. and 0.025 in. square posts. This socket is rated at 4.5 amps per pin position. Available in RoHS compliant and traditional platings, the insulator material is high temp, suitable for reflow soldering operations.
