SMD shrouded male headers suit automatic assembly

Following the trend towards automatic connector assembly by tape & reel, Fischer Elektronik offers double-row, 26-pole SMD shrouded male headers with a grid spacing of 2.54 mm.

The headers also have an assembly aid for safe and precise pick-and-place, says the company. The connectors are placed on the circuit board by the corresponding grippers using suction nozzles.

The tape is 56mm wide and each 13inch reel includes 300 units. The insulators of the male headers and the assembly aids are both made from reflow-solderable, temperature-resistant plastic.

The contacts are available in two surface finishes: completely tinned or selectively gold-plated. With the selectively gold-plated version, the plug area is gold-plated and the soldering area tin-plated. The complete header conforms to RoHs.
