Tyco's MTA-100 surface-mount headers

Tyco Electronics Corp. has developed a line of RoHS-compliant surface-mount headers with 0.100-inch centerlines that can withstand up to 280C soldering temperatures. These interconnects are suitable for power connections on a wide range of industrial and commercial electronics including garage door controls, HVAC controls, household appliances and power supplies.

Available in two to 18 contact positions, the MTA-100 surface-mount headers are rated for 250Vac and 5A. Contact finishes include Sn, 15-microinch gold and 30-microinch gold. The housing is manufactured with UL 94-V0 high-temperature black nylon, and features back wall polarization and friction locking. The headers are designed to mate with Tyco's MTA-100 insulation displacement connectors and CST-100 II crimp, snap connectors.

Packaged in tape-and-reel (225 units per reel), the MTA-100 surface-mount headers are priced at 10 cents per line in quantities of 50,000. Typical deliveries are approximately seven weeks.
