Receptacles combining Mill-Max’s high reliability contact clip technology with a solder-cup feature offer the convenience of interconnecting wires with leaded components. The solder-cup supports efficient soldering of wires, creating a secure connection, while the contact end allows a pin or lead to engage and disengage repeatedly and consistently.
A common application for these receptacles is to connect a wired component or device to a PCB, as shown here, so that the component is easily pluggable. Solder-cup receptacles also present an appealing solution for use as the female contact in cable connectors. A wide selection of individual receptacles, designed to accept different wire sizes and mating pins, is available for mounting in cable housings per the required configurations.
