The Harwin EZ-BoardWare PCB contact accommodates a wider range of pins and is secure and cost-effective. 

HarwinHarwin EZ BoardWare PCB Contact expanded its popular EZ-BoardWare PCB socket portfolio with a new contact that can accommodate mating pins ranging from 0.8mm to 1.5mm in diameter. These new products complement an existing range, enabling Harwin to offer parts with pin diameters from 0.8mm to 1.8mm. A cost-effective alternative to turned PCB sockets, EZ-Board sockets are designed for SMT assembly and are ideally suited for high-volume applications. The components come in industry-standard tape-and-reel packaging, allowing them to be automatically placed, which minimizes installed cost.

The new contacts are stackable on 2.54mm pitch spacing. The design features a two-point contact system to ensure secure retention, while facilitating easy removal and replacement of the socketed component.

“Ideal for contact pins, discrete components, sensors, and more, these new EZ-Board sockets will suit applications in many mid- to high-volume markets, ranging from consumer electronics to industrial, instrumentation, and control systems environments. Typical examples include wireless security systems, ventilation fan stators, fire detectors, and electronic switches, where low-cost, effective connections need to be achieved within the demands of high-volume assembly practices,” said Paul Gillam, product manager.
