|Connector Pin Receptacles (Discrete Sockets) On Tape & Reel
Mill-Max offers receptacles (discrete
sockets) on carrier tape per EIA-481 to feed automated ‘pick & place’ assembly
equipment. Our standard reel size is 13”.
Two types of receptacles are available on carrier tape: surface mount, flat
types, which sit on the surface of the PCB where the pin or component lead
plugs-in parallel to the PCB; and through-hole
types where the lead plugs-in perpendicular to the PCB. Through-hole receptacles
are intrusive reflow soldered*.
In addition, through-hole receptacles are available loaded with our Organic
Fibre Plug® barrier which prevents solder, paste or flux from contaminating
the spring contact. After soldering, the OFP® barrier is pushed out of the receptacle
when the device is plugged in.
*Intrusive reflow (also called "pin-in-paste") is a technique of using conventional
through-hole components in a reflow soldering process. The receptacles are placed
into plated-through-holes in the circuit board (solder paste has previously been
screen printed on pads adjacent to the holes) and the board is reflowed in the
same pass as other SMT components. Solder will fill the plated-through-holes and
achieve solder joints as reliable as wave soldering. The OFP® barrier prevents
solder paste from being picked-up inside the contact during pick ‘n place assembly.
"Overprinting" paste on the solder mask can be used to adjust the volume of paste
required to fill each hole.
