Thu, 09/03/2009 - 7:01am

SMT header with latchedMolex has introduced the Picoflex SMT Header with positive retention latches to provide a wire-to-board connection for rugged applications and high-vibration environments. The patent-pending latch design increases the retention force between the header and receptacle by at least 50 percent compared to Molex’s standard friction-lock header. The greater retention force ensures a robust and reliable connection in applications where the harness can be placed under a push/pull force or where assembly involves movement of the cable to prevent the header and receptacle from unmating.
