PCB Connector with Push-In Technology Connection-Image

Schuster Electronics introduces a new line of stacked headers and plugs from Phoenix Contact that provide a higher density application than previously available in a European-style terminal block.

The DFMC plugs contain the popular Push-In Technology wire termination system. The advantage is reduced assembly time and labor costs, thanks to direct push-in of solid or ferruled wires without the use of tools. The plugs come in three styles, no latches, screw latches or lock-and-release latch styles.

Headers are available in horizontal or vertical PCB mount. The header with high temperature LCP housings can be applied in either pin-in-paste reflow or wave solder processes. Headers can be supplied in tape-on-reel packaging for automated pick and place assembly.

Features & Benefits include:

  • Push-in spring technology for fast wire assembly
  • 20 percent space saving on the PCB
  • Insert molded header with accurate pin placement for high pick-and-place yields
  • Alternative latching options for flexibility in application needs
  • Compatible to MC family "footprint"

Technical data:

  • 24 to 16 AWG
  • 8 A and 150 V rating
  • Spacing: 3.5 mm
  • Height of plug: 13.5 mm
  • Horizontal header height: 10.8 mm
