This Economy Power (EP) wire-to-board connector family is widely used for power circuit applications. Based on the proven EP version the new and advanced EP II and EP 2.5 lines offer additional benefits. EP II connectors are rated for 600VAC at up to 11A and thus offer potential for a larger range of applications. Still their electric properties make it an option to mix signal and power in one connector.
EP II connectors offer two levels of mechanical and electrical reliability: A true locking latch prevents the plug housing and post header from vibrating apart, while a Terminal Position Assurance (TPA) device produces a tangible click once a receptacle contact is fully seated. A visual aid confirms that the contact is home plus it provides easy access to a probe tip for continuity testing. The new EP 2.5 family is a compact version based on a .100” [2.5mm] pitch ideally suited for PC board space restraints. Up to 20 positions make it the perfect choice for combining power and signal.
