Weco’s 974-D-SMD-DS is a 5 mm pitch PCB terminal block offered as a SMT (surface mount technology) product for the re-flow soldering process. The inclined connection angle of 45° offers the advantage of the “one behind the other” location on PCB. The inclined connection angle makes also possible inclined wire insertion when various components are blocking the front of the connector. 974-D-SMD-DS connector is a solution for any situation when wire cannot be inserted in parallel direction to the PCB.
The high temperature resistant housing material is specially designed in order to ensure optimum hot-air circulation during the re-flow soldering process. A condition to optimize the re-flow soldering process is to place the wire entry side of the connector in the direction of the hot air flow. The screw is captivated in the tower of the connector. Its top flat surface can be used as a pick and place surface. Deliverable in Tape and Reel.
