All silver, gold and palladium plated parts are ROHS compliant.
What speed can the SMOX be placed at?
Trials show that with the multi-head/nozzle machines (i.e. Fuji 642E), the SMOX can be placed at up to 40,000 components per hour.
How can I pick up the SMOX?
There is no consensus on this subject. Some customers prefer to pick up on the ball, to increase the speed of pick-up, while others prefer the security of the flat shoulder.
What size nozzle do I use?
It is recommended that a nozzle with an internal diameter of 0.9mm + 0.05 be used when picking up on the ball and a nozzle with a minimum internal diameter of 1.1mm when picking up on the shoulder.
What guarantees are there that the component is picked up correctly?
A custom designed pocket is used to ensure the SMOX stays in the vertical position. The machine's camera vision system checks for pick-up accuracy.
What size and shape of solder pads are recommended?
Any square or round pad with a minimum width (or diameter) of 2mm.
Does the SMOX on tape and reel allow for successful high volume placing?
Yes. Trials at speeds of up to 0.0945 seconds each (40,000 components per hour) have shown successful placement rates of up to 99.95%.
Does the design of the SMOX allow for successful reflow soldering?
Due to the chamfered base on the low profile SMOX, the solder wicks up the chamfer allowing a good fillet to be formed.
How does the socket help the SMOX connection system?
The innovative design of the socket spill enables the socket to detach with minimal force if the cable is caught accidentally. Thus, there is no risk of damage to the PCB.
