Tyco Electronics Expands Economy Power Connector Line
o Fully Shrouded Headers Help Eliminate Mismating
HARRISBURG, Pa. - Oct. 28, 2008 - New fully shrouded post headers, available in 2 through 12 positions, have been added to the popular Economy Power (EP) connector family. Intended for secondary power circuit applications, the through-hole headers have a current-carrying capacity of 7.5 A maximum per contact. To lessen the chance of mismating, the full four-sided shrouding aids proper alignment during engagement of the plug connector. The new headers are compatible with existing EP connectors.
Contacts are on a 0.156-inch [3.96-mm] pitch. The header includes a positive-lock feature. During mating, the positive locking lever on the outside of the plug housing engages the mating header housing to provide greater retention. Housings are 94V-0-rated nylon; contacts are tin-plated brass. The connectors are UL Component Recognized, CSA Certified, and RoHS compliant.
EP connectors are a wire-to-board system widely used in household appliances, HVAC, gasoline pumps, coin changers, vending machines, and industrial machinery.
