Quickie® Press-Fit, Shrouded, Eye-of-Needle Header | FCI

FCI Quickie® Press-Fit, Shrouded, Eye-of-Needle Header

Quickie® press-fit shrouded headers complement FCI’s comprehensive family of Quickie® ribbon-cable receptacles and solderto-board PCB headers. The spring-tension, “Eye-of-Needle” compliant section reduces insertion force during connector installation, thereby minimizing stress on the plated-through holes during insertion while still providing ample contact force and connector retention.

The press-fit headers are offered in low-profile, slimline versions or versions equipped with end latches. Two latch options are available. Standard-height latches are compatible with an IDC receptacle having an installed cable strain relief. Low-profile latches are designed to accommodate an IDC receptacle without a strain relief. The protective shrouds also feature a polarizing keyway to accommodate the center key on a corresponding IDC receptacle.

These dual-row headers utilize 0.64mm (0.025”) square pins spaced on 2.54mm (0.100”) x 2.54mm (0.100”) pitch. Twelve standard connector sizes provide from 10 to 60 total contact positions.

Features & Benefits:

  • Expansion of its BASICS+ portfolio with an eye-of-needle version of the Quickie® header
  • The “Eye-of-Needle” compliant section on pin termination tails reduces the stress on plated-through holes during connector insertion
  • Two-row connectors are available in industry-standard sizes ranging from 10 to 60 total positions
  • Molded header shroud protects pins, assists alignment during mating and provides polarization capability
  • Versions with standard or low-profile end latches provide both latching and ejection functionality
  • Headers with pre-installed latches eliminate the need for later hand installation of latches
  • Standard contact finish is 0.76μm (30μ”) gold or GXT fully plated; selective plating is available as an option
  • Lead-free and RoHS compliant
