Power Connectors feature vertical mating design.

December 3, 2014

Rated up to 4 A and 50 Vac/Vdc, DF65 Series offers wire-to-board solution for electronic device battery connections. Units feature narrow 1.7 mm pitch and 1.8 mm mated height. Positive lock secures socket into header, and produces over 5 N cable pull strength in upper direction, while friction lock ensures complete locking by producing final tactile click. Operating from -35 to +105°C, connectors limit contact resistance to 10 MΩ with insulation resistance of at least 100 MΩ at 100 Vdc. Read More

Automotive Antenna Connector offers single-step termination.

October 30, 2014

Available in 1–4 coaxial contact positions, GT21 Series includes through-hole (15 x 8.15 x 10 mm), SMT (15 x 8.75 x 10 mm), in-line (27 x 10.55 x 12.2 mm), and power/coaxial hybrid (15.6 x 12.5 x 10 mm) types. Coaxial termination system allows crimping of center and outer conductors in one step, and cable assembly is finished without touching center conductor. Along with VSWR of 1.5 max (DC to 2.5 GHz), connector has positive lock structure, rated current of 1 A, and rated voltage of 250 Vdc. Read More
