Palladium Nickel/Gold Plating Technology for High Reliability Connectors July, 2010;
Bolingbrook, IL – Pancon Connectors is announcing the introduction of PdNi/Au (Palladium Nickel/Gold) plating technology for their MAS-CON® Series product line. The change to PdNi/Au is being introduced on all MAS-CON® products that are currently Au (Gold) plated. Product Qualification Testing has shown that there are no changes to the current product performance specifications. The PdNi plating has produced results equivalent to the current Au plated parts. All PdNi/Au plated parts can be mated with current Au plated connectors and headers. All of the PdNi/Au parts are RoHS compliant as are all of our other MAS-CON® products. Parts affected by this change will be referred to by performance level, rather than plating thickness. Current Au plating may still be available on all affected products as a non-standard option. Non-standard parts will receive a new, unique part number and will be provided at a premium cost. There will be no change to existing part numbers. The plating technology changes will be introduced in Q3 2010 with full implementation on all MAS-CON® products expected by Q1 2011. A. .pdf version of this announcement is available here.

Pancon Connectors announces improvements to ERG Jumper switch production. October 6, 2008
We are pleased to announce that due to the sustainable growth of our ERG Jumper Switch range we have now completed our investment in fully upgraded tooling and automated manufacturing that significantly increases production capacity, the result of which dramatically reduces lead times.
Our standard lead time for ERG components will now be 8 to 10 weeks from receipt of order, for typical sized orders.
The success of this range as a robust, quality Jumper Switch (which can be used as a movable shunt) has established it as the natural option for reliability and performance, and we would like to take this opportunity to thank our many customers for their support and business over the last few months of transition.
