Wire connectors plug into board without header, soldering, tools

SDC 2.5 connectors plug directly into pc boards’
through-contacted bore holes without tools, thereby eliminating the need for soldering
or an additional header and reducing component and process costs. The
connectors’ “SKEDD” plug-in technology employs a geometry that is similar to
press-in technology: each contact pin is made up of two flexible halves that
easily adjust to plated through-holes on a board. When the contact is inserted
into a through-hole, the integrated body-bound rivets lock the connectors in
place to form a vibration-resistant connection.


Wires terminate to the connector with a push-in spring
connection. Solid and stranded wires with a ferrule can be pushed directly into
the terminal block without opening the spring clamp. To remove the wires, the
user simply presses the orange spring lever with a standard screwdriver. The
connectors have a 5-mm centerline and are available in versions with one to 16
positions. List price starts at $0.90.
