JST Corp.'s new SFH Series Wire-to-Board Crimp
Style Connector is a compact, low-profile connector with both polarization and a
secure friction locking device to ensure reliable contact in low-current, low-voltage
conditions. They have a 1.8 mm (0.071 inch) pitch and side entry mated heights
of only 3.0 mm (0.118 inch).
SFH Series is available in a two circuit size. Contacts are tin-plated over a
phosphor bronze base material and accommodate a wide range of 22 to 30AWG.
Current is rated at 4A ac/dc (using 22 or 24 AWG) at 350V ac/dc. Temperature
range is - 25to 85C (including temperature rise in applying
electrical current). Socket housing is 94V-O-rated thermoplastic resin material
and is notched on one side for ease in locating the pin one position. Available
in side-entry only (right-angle) mounting configuration, the RoHS-complaint,
fully shrouded headers feature insertion guides for easy and secure mating. SMT
