AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer of passive components and interconnect solutions, has expanded its innovative 9296 Poke Home Connector Series with the introduction of a new vertical through board, SMT, wire-to-board (WTB) connector. The new 9296 WTB single poke home connectors feature a dual beam box contact that provides maximum mechanical stability and wire retention and are designed to be fed through a hole in a PCB. This configuration allows stripped, solid or stranded, plated or un-plated, 18-26AWG wire to be easily inserted into the connector body at a 180-degree orientation to the bottom side of a PCB, which, in most applications, is also the back.
Featuring a minimal above board height of 0.80mm and standard top side SMT leads, the user-friendly 9296 Series is available in one to six positions and accepts the complete wire gauge range for both solid and stranded wires at the varying current ratings supported by each wire size. Once stripped and inserted, wires can easily be removed or replaced by simply twisting, unscrewing, or using a small blade extraction tool.
Rated for 300VAC, five-cycle durability, and -40°C to +125°C, 9296 Series connectors feature RoHS-compliant copper alloy contacts with tin over nickel plating and are tape and reel packaged for automated SMT placement.
