Positioning pins for SMD male and female headers
For better fastening of SMD headers onto PCBs, Fischer Elektronik are now able to offer, with immediate effect, designs with positioning pins for double-row male headers (SL LP 6 SMD ...) and female headers (BL 16 SMD ...). Both ends of the headers are provided with centrally arranged plastic tenons which have a diameter of 1.2 mm. The drilled hole in the PCB, having a dimension between 1.2 and 1.3 mm, enables for the headers to be fitted precisely and safely. The minimum number of contacts is 6 (2 x 3 contacts). The spacing of the drilled holes for accommodating the positioning pins is 2.54 mm for the 6-contact version and this spacing increases with the number of contacts. The maximum number of contacts in the standard version is 40 (2 x 20 contacts). Other numbers of contacts can be supplied on request.
