PCB Connectors: C-Press Series
C-Press® “True” Compliant Press-Fit Connectors Pillion offers the leading edge in compliant press-fit pins and connectors. In both design and performance, the C-Press® contact is the premium compliant pin. The advantage of the C-Press contact lies in its unique “C” shaped compliant section. Unlike two and four point press-fit systems, the crescent-shaped, tapered beam conforms naturally within the board to the shape of the plated throughhole. It expands or contracts to make contact around the circumference of the plated through-hole from .037″ to .043″ in diameter, exerting an equal normal force onto the entire surface of the hole, while forming a gas tight and extremely reliable electrical connection.
