Socket connectors are typically used to interconnect PC boards or points on a backplane through headers or pins on .100 in. × .100 in. spacing.
They feature an advanced mechanical design which includes CW's patented offset-tine (Torq-Tite™) contact for positive gas-tight cable termination. The nose end of the contact provides a long, dual cantilever for a longer wiping action and improved self-cleaning of the mating pin. The extra length also results in a longer and more reliable working life.
The reassembled cover design allows fast, reliable assembly to extruded, bonded, or laminated cable and features built-in cable alignment. These features permit the use of simplified termination equipment.
