A choice of 24, 28, or 40 pin count devices can be inserted without bending or otherwise damaging the legs, since no force is required to either insert or remove the component from the socket.
A metal cam provides strong, smooth action as it moves to a positive stop, compressing the double-sided contacts, ensuring a gas-tight seal.
Test point openings provided to reach all pins.
