Fit connectors have some advantages:
Flexible response of the press-fit zone on the pin,
achieves minimal strain on the plated-through hole.
A larger hole tolerance of the plated-through drill
holes is permissible in the printed circuit boards.
Less press-fit forces are required, thus undesired side
effects are reduced
Multiple press-fitting of contacts into the same PCB
drill hole is possible.
suggested drill hole size for press fit connectors is
listed on each drawing for your specific connector for
your requirment. The drawing below is for XMV press
fit for vertical mount RJ45 connectors. The drawing
below contains the drill hole size and tolerance so
you can determine the proper plating for the PCB. Our
engineers do not advise the plating in the hole as this
is normally determined by the customer layout based
on the drawing and samples.
