Mill-Max Manufacturing Corporation announced its double-row SMT strip socket for .025- to .037-inch diameter and .025-inch square pins. According to Mill-Max, the surface-mounted socket connector is more rugged than smaller connectors and is secure enough to accommodate repetitive plugging and unplugging. With high-temperature thermoplastics, the strip is suitable for soldering.
The sockets are available in a range of 4 (2x2 receptacles) to 100 (2x50 receptacles) and stands at .276 inch tall with a .100-inch spacing between receptacles. Each receptacle is rated at 4.5 amps per position and is available in both RoHS and leaded versions.
Mill-Max double row SMT strip sockets are available in 4 through 100 socket configurations.
Engineers at Fuel Cell Energy have found a way to take advantage of a side reaction, unique to their carbonate fuel cell that has nothing to do with energy production, as a potential, cost-effective solution to capturing carbon from fossil fuel power plants.
