Phoenix Contact MSTB and FKC Lock-and-Release Connectors

The MSTB and FKC lock-and-release connectors from Phoenix Contact contain levers that automatically snap-lock onto the header during insertion. This enables convenient ejection of the plug. The function of the lock-and-release lever is self-explanatory and easy to use.

Headers are available in either horizontal or vertical PCB-mount and can be applied using wave solder processes. High-temperature, pin-in-paste headers are also available for reflow soldering.
