Fully shrouded box headers and mates now available from Sullins Connector Solutions


Series Features Choices of Contact Centers, Positions, and Terminations for Optimal Design Flexibility

San Marcos, CA, January 12, 2009-
Sullins Connector Solutions, a global leader in the design and manufacturing of RoHS-compliant board-level interconnects, announced the availability of the SBH Series Fully Shrouded Male Box Headers, and SFH Series Female Header Mates. Engineered for board-to-board or board-to-cable connections, the series significantly reduces the possibility of mismating, and helps designers reduce the vendor count per bill of materials (BOM). The dual-row SBH Series Box Headers are offered in 1.27mm x 1.27mm, 1.27mm x 2.54mm, 2mm, and 2.54mm versions, with either straight or right angle dip solder terminations. To further enhance EOEMS’ and assemblers’ design flexibility and manufacturing efficiencies, parts are supplied in surface mount (SMT), insulation displacement (IDC), and plated through hole (PTH) styles. The SFH Series Female Mates are provided in corresponding contact positions with the box headers, and may be ordered with polarizing keys to ensure proper mating alignment. Additionally, an optional strain relief feature on IDC female mates minimizes tension on cable connectors to promote longer product life.

The new headers and female mates are ideally suited for the broadest range of consumer, commercial and industrial applications in which PC boards need be connected to another board or cable. As such, they may be confidently specified for use on PCBs in household appliances, HVAC equipment, gasoline pumps, vending machines, and industrial machinery.

Sullins’ shrouded box headers have current ratings of 1 A to 3 A maximum per contact, and are available in 3 through 50 positions. Materials are UL94V-0 rated, and withstand reflow processes up to 260 degrees C peak. Headers are provided standard with overall gold flash plated brass contacts, whereas mates are supplied with overall gold flash plated phosphor bronze contacts. Insulation materials are PBT or Nylon-6T, and insulation resistance is 1000 mega ohms. Operating temperature range of the parts is -40 degrees C to +105 degrees C.
