SMT Contact Allows Solderless Termination

Wed, 05/26/2010 - 5:20am

ASM01 spring contact from RIA Connect The ASM01 spring contact from RIA Connect is a single pole, vibration-resistant SMT terminal which allows for a solderless termination of pinned components and individual solid wires. Version “Y” accommodates 18 – 16 AWG, while version “W” handles the thinner gauges of 26 – 18 AWG. Stranded wires with ferrules can also be used.
The 3.5mm2 device allows leaded components to effectively become SMT compatible; therefore eliminating the need to wave-solder them. The ASM01 can withstand soldering temperatures of 290°C for 90 seconds, and can be soldered either on the component or the soldering side for added flexibility.
