Dual edge mount connector | 6 September, 2010

Hi all,

Looking for some advice on how to run this component through the SMT process or is it always hand soldered?

Part number is HSEC8-120-01-S-D-EM2

We are currently handsoldering.

We don't use this part, but Samtec reflows it for their published durability tests. They published the reflow profile as part of the test report on the Samtec site.

Looks like a hand solder process - getting paste down but not smearing it too bad while sliding the connector on is probably not worth the trouble. Teka makes solder bearing connectors which would allow you to install last and simply reflow with the rest of the parts.

SIPAD solid solder deposit solves this challenge.

AJ, I am the manager of Samtec's Interconnect Processing Group. The edge mount connector in question does present a set of unique assembly challenges but I am confident we can help you develop a process that fits your needs. Please contact our group at ipg@samtec.com so we can better understand your application and share our experience with this connector.

Thanks,

If your pads are long enough you shouldn't have a problem, the pins on the connector are curved up(away from pcb)and will plow solder paste to the end of the pad then it will wick back up the pin during reflow. if you have a second stencil for the bottom, paste bottom first offline then send board through line as normal hand placing this part last. it worked for me. Good luck!
