Notable Features: 
  • Wide circular (pigtail) area that provides good stability on top of a circuit board surface.
  • The large pigtail circular section is an excellent surface for solder attachment. The solder is able to melt in between the open areas of the pigtail for excellent attachment.
  • The pigtail section is very wide in relation to the wire diameter and can often times provide a wider, more stable surface for placement of the pin on a flat surface.
  • Used when heat sink requirements (requiring a large cold formed mass of copper) are not an issue.
  • Production speeds are high for this high volume piece allowing for low production costs.
  • Excellent attachment characteristics for soldering lots of surfaces for solder interface.
