Early engagement receptacles require minimal insertion length

MILL-MAX early engagement receptacles require minimal insertion length contact and are designed to work with shorter mating leads. Devices are fitted with a new, beryl­lium copper contact clip that is characterized by an early engagement contact point, dual entry capability, low contact resistance and high current carrying capacity. The 0448-0-15-15-48-27-10-0 and 0640-0-15-15-48-27-10-0 receptacles accept lead diameters from .037” – .043” (,94 – 1,09 mm) with a minimum mating lead length of .058” (1,47 mm) for top entry insertion. This is a 30% reduction in required lead length from firm’s current receptacle offerings. The reduction is due to the hourglass design and extended contact surface area, eliminating the need for excess protrusion through its fingers for reliable electrical contact. The ability to use shorter mating pins provides several advantages such as compressed packaging, shorter electrical signal paths and lower potential RF signal in­terference.
