Questions & Answers Ask a Question

What is the compressive spring force of the S1941-42 clip?

We have two forces stated on the second page of the Technical Drawing (available under Downloads on this page), for the horizontal and vertical directions at recommended working deflection. The spring force is 1.2N at both deflections – 0.3mm deflection in the vertical and 0.4mm in the horizontal.

Given there will be no voltage present during switching, how many mating cycles can this connector handle?

This contact has been rated up to 5000 cycles durability (as long as the amount of deflection is kept within the stated maximums). You can see this specification and the maximum deflection on the Technical Drawing/Datasheet S1941.pdf.

Does this product need a pick and place cap for SMT placement?

A separate pick and place cap is not necessary (and is not supplied) – the part has an integrated flat surface that should be used for pick and place purposes. You just need to specify a vacuum nozzle of the right size.
