The growing need for tape and reel packaging of SMD connectors for automatic placement is being met by Fischer Elektronik with the continuous expansion of the delivery options for these types of connectors. As a result, a large proportion of the SMD connectors delivery program is now being offered with the "tape and reel" packaging option. Therefore, when ordering, a "TR ..." must be added to the article number and a "... B TR" should be added when a pick and place pad is required. In addition, custom tapes can also be made for "Through Hole Reflow (THR)" connectors and normal "wave soldered (THT)" connectors.
In order to pre-fabricate the tape rationally and economically, the tapes are usually designed for multiple lead counts. In addition, customer-specific versions of tape and reel packaging can also be realised.
