New BTB Pin Jumpers for Maximum Tolerance Absorption in SSL & Industrial Applications

FOUNTAIN INN, S.C. (April 12, 2018) - AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer and supplier of advanced electronic components and interconnect, sensor, control, and antenna solutions, has released a new series of pin jumpers designed for board-to-board (BTB) and module-to-module connections in solid-state lighting (SSL) and other low-pin-count industrial applications. When used in conjunction with the new 2.5mm 70-9296 Series STRIPT™ horizontal, poke-home contact without a wire stop - which is both the first industrial poke-home connector available without an integral wire stop and, currently, the only industrial poke-home connector with a 2.5mm profile - the new 10-9296 Series BTB pin jumpers are allowed to pass straight through the contacts, completely unrestricted, until the final, user-defined mating dimension is achieved. Unlike traditional BTB pin jumpers - which are made to mate with traditional connectors and are thus closed on the back end, limiting the depth to which a pin can travel and restricting the amount of BTB or module-to-module mating tolerance that the jumper can absorb - the new 10-9296 Series BTB pin jumper/709296001025016 contact combination absorbs the maximum amount of component and assembly tolerances during the mating process, effectively eliminating the PCB and housing tolerance stack-up issues common to traditional connector systems in linear and coplanar applications.
