Press-fit pcb pins fit plated-through holes

MILL-MAX Four pins for press-fit into pcb plated-through holes provide a secure connection, while maintaining plated-through hole integrity and continuity. Devices incorporate square press-fit geometry and angled vent features making them suitable for solderless press-fit or press-fit and solder pcb termination. These double tail header pins provide a square press-fit shank, a round tail and a standoff body in between. When they are pressed into a plated through hole the points (the major or circumscribed diameter) of the square are set or imbedded in the hole while the flat sides of the feature (minor or inscribed diameter) provide relief, allowing the remainder of the plated through hole barrel to remain intact. The result is internal board layers are not disconnected when the pin is pressed in.
