If designing a platform to support MatesBUS compatible products such as the TIMI or REPTOR, then one of the purposes designed MatesBUS headers can be used. Two options are available: a flat header (BBM-0DEG-HDR) or a 45-Degree header (BBM-45DEG-HDR).
MatesBUS headers are standard 2.54mm (0.1”) pitch and have been customized into a single moulding with side labels for convenience. The 45-degree option enables angled viewing of the attached MatesBUS-compatible product, which is especially useful for development platforms and education.
The 45-degree header features long pins, enabling it to plug into a standard breadboard directly, or they can be trimmed when mounting on a PCB. The flat 0-degree version has shorter pins and is unsuitable for breadboard use.
