Power Double Lock Connectors are compact connectors designed for use in power circuit applications and are ideally suited for wiring in refrigerators, air conditioners, washing machines, gas equipment, copying machines and automatic vending machines. These connectors can be used alone by inserting wire-terminated crimp snap-in contacts into the housing. However, to achieve more positive contact mounting, plug and cap housings can be equipped with a double lock plate that helps to completely insert contacts. There are three contact centerline spacings available: 3.96 mm, 6.5 mm and 7.92 mm. Of these, the 7.92 mm centerline contact arrangement is for 2-position board-mounted headers. The mating wiremounted plug connector uses the second circuit of the 3-position 3.96 mm centerline housing with no contact loaded. Available with the 3.96 mm centerline contact arrangement are wire-mounted plug housings and the mating wire-mounted cap housings (for freehanging and panel mounted applications) and boardmounted tab headers.
The 6.5 mm centerline contact arrangement is used in wire-mounted plug housings and the mating boardmounted tab headers. The plug housings are loaded with receptacle contacts and the cap housings with tab contacts. The tab headers for board mounting are preloaded with solder-dipping tab contacts with tail.
Contacts accept two wire size ranges: 28-22 AWG (with insulation outer diameter of 1.3 to 2.0 mm) and 20-18 AWG (with insulation outer diameter of 2.0 to 3.1 mm).
The tab header for board mounting has a locking mechanism where it is compatible with resin coating that is applied to the board for waterproof.
It is designed to work with the plug locking function. The solder tail section of tab contact has kink feature.
Interacting with the mounting boss with kink feature, the solder tab secures the header on the board firmly during soldering.
Power circuit connectors of compact design
Uses double lock plate on the wire side that helps prevent partial mating of contacts
Double lock plate compatible with high-count positions of more than 3 rows
Tab and receptacle contacts resist scooping of contacts at mating / unmating
Locking of plug to cap housings and plug to boardmounted headers made by the semi-inner locking system that helps preclude the possibility of isengagement by external pressure
Both wire-to-wire and wireto-board applications available from the same Series lineup
Board-mounted header compatible with resin coating, causing no hindrance with the plug locking function
Design complies with a range of safety standards
The housing lance design provides no lance on contacts and helps prevent entanglement of contacts with one another
