True surface-mount terminal blocks facilitate board assembly. Tin-lead plated solder contact tabs are specifically designed for compatibility with SMT reflow solder installation.
SMT terminal blocks must be securely and independently fastened to the board in order to isolate the solder contacts from stresses created by wire-to-board termination. Amphenol Pcd SMV/SMX blocks are supplied with screw fasteners that provide a rigid tie-down mechanical link between connector and board, eliminating stress transfer. (See illustration, this page.)
Please contact Amphenol Pcd regarding through-hole pin mounting, custom colors and marking, selective contact loading and tube packaging.
