3M™ 2mm Latch/Eject Header is an interconnect solution for wire-to-board applications. Key highlights of this new connector are: it is based on the 2mm x 2mm, so-called ‘hard metric’, grid; the integrated latches hold the mating ribbon cable assembly, such as the 3M 2M Series, securely in place during use; and the header meets regulatory requirements for hazardous substances where in force. The new 3M™ 2mm Latch/Eject Header takes its key design elements from the ever popular header based on .100” x .100”, or 2.54 mm X 2.54 mm, grid. Developed over forty years ago, this latched, boxed header has been used in a multitude of applications and designed to securely attach ribbon cable assemblies.
