Mill-Max Mfg Corp. offers a full line of low-profile, above board and elevated barrel receptacles suitable for socketing LED devices used in applications such as display backlighting, automotive signal lights, electronic signs and custom array displays.

The LED receptacles make it easier to replace LEDs by simply unplugging the header connector from the receptacle and replacing the LED unit. The precision-machined receptacles use a multifinger beryllium copper spring contact, which is said to provide secure retention and a hi-reliability electrical connection to the mated LED lead.

To reduce the time required to assemble individual socket receptacles, the receptacles may be packaged in SIP, DIP, PGA or application-specific footprint patterns. Mill-Max offers technical support for application-specific projects.

Part number 0667-0-15-15-30-27-10-0 (RoHS-compliant, gold-plated shell and contact) is priced at $52.60 for a quantity of 25,000. Delivery is two weeks. Free samples of standard catalog parts are available for evaluation. Go to the company Website to order free samples.
