Socket strips and jumpers simplify test equipment design

Patch panels and breakout boxes often require a large number of test sockets to be located in a small area, making cut outs, fixing and soldering awkward. This problem can be alleviated with Multi-Contact's 20 pole socket strips rather than individual sockets.

Socket strips and jumpers simplify test equipment design

The socket strips consist of 2 x 10 gold plated 2mm diameter sockets on either 6 or 12mm spacing. They require only five fixings and all the solder connections are orientated to allow for easier cable placement and soldering.

The strips are complemented by Multi-Contact's new jumper plugs, which use the company's Multilam torsion spring technology for vibration-proof contact and improved reliability.
The insulated jumpers have a 2mm socket located in the rigid hand grip and are available with nickel or gold plated contacts, the latter providing low contact resistance and high resistance to corrosion.

Current ratings for the plugs and sockets are 10A, with rated voltages of 33Vac and 70Vdc. All are available in red or black, with other colours on request, dependent on quantity.
