manufacturer number (Mill-Max): 855-22-010-10-001101 datasheet (2x5 pins)

enter image description here

Can I directly solder something to the bottom pins ? The manufacturer has some solutions but it requires expensiv tools which I don't want to buy. What could be a good solution ?

    \$\begingroup\$ When you say the bottom pins are you referring to the .016 DIA. side or the .019 DIA? As this is a spring-loaded connector you are only meant to solder to the .016 DIA side, and that’s just a basic through hole solder joint. \$\endgroup\$ Aug 5, 2020 at 10:57

  • \$\begingroup\$ You could probably point to point wire it but mechanical support and durability may be limited without a PCB. In a pinch for short term use you might wire it, test it, and glue it into some 3d printed piece. \$\endgroup\$ Aug 5, 2020 at 12:20

Yes you can solder to the .016 DIA side of the connector no problem, this part is meant to be inserted into a Plated (Non-plated would work too) Through Hole PCB slot then soldered.

I'm not sure what the Manufacturer solution would be other than a development breakout PCB?

  • \$\begingroup\$ @vicatcu that could make sense, yeah the ones OP are talking about are much easier to deal with \$\endgroup\$ Aug 5, 2020 at 16:12

Actually you solder the bottom part to a PCB, through hole. The upper pins have springs and they are meant to make a non permanent contact by touching contact pads.
