Sullins Connector Solutions announces the availability of the SBH Series fully shrouded male box headers and SFH Series female header mates. Engineered for board-to-board or board-to-cable connections, the series significantly reduces the possibility of mismating and helps designers reduce the vendor count per bill of materials (BOM). The dual-row SBH Series box headers are offered in 1.27 mm x 1.27 mm, 1.27 mm x 2.54 mm, 2 mm, and 2.54 mm versions with either straight or right angle dip solder terminations. To further enhance EOEMS' and assemblers' design flexibility and manufacturing efficiencies, parts are supplied in surface mount (SMT), insulation displacement (IDC), and plated through hole (PTH) styles. The SFH Series female mates are provided in corresponding contact positions with the box headers and may be ordered with polarizing keys to ensure proper mating alignment. Additionally, an optional strain relief feature on IDC female mates minimizes tension on cable connectors to promote longer product life.
The new box headers and mates are ideally suited for the broadest range of consumer, commercial and industrial applications in which PC boards need to be connected to another board or cable. As such, they may be confidently specified for use on PCBs in household appliances, HVAC equipment, gasoline pumps, vending machines, and industrial machinery.
