Hello I am looking for a substitute for Mill-Max’s 3159-X PC pin if anybody has another product in mind, thanks. Would like a vent hole and a deeper solder cup if possible
Hello. It looks to me like a potentially good substitute might be 36-1361-2-ND. The pin is ever so slightly larger and its overall length is a bit longer but the solder well is deeper. I was not able to find anything with a vent that compared with the 3159 series unfortunately. Have a look and let me know if you have any other questions or thoughts to add.
Hi Travis, thanks for searching for this, unfortunately it would be too fat (.050 dia.) – was looking for something niche, like .045, .044, .043 to fit into a
KMC not much to offer with those diameters.
See link below of what is in our system.
With the call out of “niche”
You are probably looking at a custom part number which usually have lead times and minimums to order.
But first you would have to pick a manufacture and a series and ask the manufacture for a customer or build a part number.
Then you can see if Digi-Key can do what is called a non-catalog request.
which is explained in this link below from Robert Fay
If you are looking for a part from one of Digi-Key’s Suppliers that is not listed on the website it may be possible to order this part for you. Digi-Key will quote items that we do not currently offer as long as it is from a manufacturer that we carry and the manufacture will make the part(not obsolete etc). This would be what we call a non-catalog quote. These quotes generally take from 3-5 business days to back from the manufacturer. A non-catalog quote will come from the manufacturer with pricing, lead time, and minimum order quantity if required. If you would like to request a non-catalog quote please contact our sales department at email@example.com and let them know the part number and manufacturer that you are looking to order.
