Sealed Mini Universal MATE-N-LOK Connectors Separate Liquids From Electronics



HARRISBURG, Pa., April 16 - Tyco Electronics today introduced the Sealed Mini Universal MATE-N-LOK connector system. This product is a small, wire to wire and wire to board connector system that adds splash proofing to an existing, field proven product design. Sealed Mini Universal MATE-N-LOK connectors are available as a dual-row product in two through 10 positions. Applications for this product can be found in household appliances, vending machines, HVAC equipment and other industrial/commercial applications requiring small centerlines and splash proofing. In addition to high humidity and intermittent liquid splashing installations, these connectors are also suitable for foam-in insulation use commonly found in refrigeration equipment.

Sealed Mini Universal MATE-N-LOK connectors mate with all standard Mini Universal MATE-N-LOK connectors and employ positive, polarized keys with latching orientation to ease assembly. Furthermore, the contact system remains unchanged from standard Mini Universal MATE-N-LOK connectors. Mini Universal MATE-N-LOK application tooling is also unchanged.

Cycle durability for these new connectors is rated at 20 with contact retention of at least 8 pounds per contact. The contacts are rated for 600 VAC/VDC at 9.5 amps maximum. Housings are
molded UL94V-0 nylon. Contacts are brass with pre-plated tin or duplex gold plating.
