Surface Mount Printed Circuit Jumpers

September 15, 2016

A new series of SMT PC Board Jumpers designed to link Circuit Board traces/tracks are the latest connectivity devices available from Keystone.

Quickly and easily set-up, these space-saving SMT jumpers are uniquely suited as alternative options where thru-hole jumper use is not feasible.  As such, the new connectors are designed to provide ideal low profile circuit linkage and minimal footprint for high-density, high current PCB packages on power and aluminum backplanes.  All PCB soldering applications, including reflow, may be utilized.

Manufactured from Copper with silver plating, three different SMT Jumper styles are offered to meet individual preferences including:  Compact style, Cat. #5100 (bulk) or Cat. #5100TR (tape and reel); Micro-Miniature style, Cat. #5102 (bulk) or Cat. #5102TR (tape and reel); and Miniature Style, Cat. #5104 (bulk) or Cat. #5104TR (tape and reel).  All tape and reel parts are packaged per ANSI/EIA-481 standard for compatibility with most vacuum and mechanical pick and place assembly systems.
