TE Connectivity Introduces Surface Mounted BUCHANAN Wiremate Connectors for Faster PCB Assembly

HARRISBURG, PA., USA – August 8, 2017 – TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, now offers the BUCHANAN WireMate connector Surface Mount TB series, a two-piece pluggable connector solution designed with surface mount technology (SMT). The family includes surface mount headers and mating plugs in vertical and right-angle configurations between two and twelve positions giving manufacturers design flexibility.

Target applications for TE’s new BUCHANAN WireMate connector Surface Mount TB series include HVAC equipment and controls, industrial controls, security systems, industrial lighting solutions, and elevators and escalators. These connectors are designed for manufacturers looking to make the change to full SMT printed circuit boards (PCBs) or requiring a product capable of withstanding reflow soldering temperatures. TE’s BUCHANAN WireMate connector Surface Mount TB series allows for faster PCB assembly, and optional SMT retention features further ensure secure PCB mounting. The connectors have tin-plated copper alloy contacts, and the housing material has a UL 94 V-0 flammability rating.

BUCHANAN WireMate connector Surface Mount TB series are available with 3.5 mm and 5.0 mm centerlines. The 3.5mm centerline offering accepts 30 - 16AWG and is rated for 8A at 300V. The 5.0mm centerline accepts 26 -12 AWG wire gauge and is rated 15A (2-9 positions) at 300 V or 10A (10-12 positions) at 300V.
