Power Taps are designed for the growing need for power to printed circuit board applications required in today's electronic industry. The taps provide a high current, separable connection to a pc board. Pin configuration is of the standard DIP outline with .300 x .100 [7.62 x 2.54] or .250 x .125 [6.35 x 3.18] for the Standard versions, plus .400 x .200 [10.16 x 5.08], .300 x .100 [7.62 x 2.54] and in-line spacing for the High Current versions.
ACTION PIN contacts provide a low resistance interface with tin platedthrough holes in the pc board, thereby eliminating the need for soldering. The variety of available power taps allow for various installation schemes. The Uninsulated Tap and Low Profile Tap can be used in bus bar pattern. The High Profile and Low Profile Taps offer insulation protection from other components. The High Current versions provide a greater power density option with current ratings from 10 amps on the 2 position in-line .250 [6.35] tab tap up to 40 amps on the 8 position dual .250 [6.35] tab tap.
All Tyco Electronics Power Tap configurations are easily inserted into the pc board with a simple Tyco Electronics or customer supplied tool.
