The Economy Power 2.5 (EP 2.5) connector is a new type of single row or dual row crimp connector system. The product line is comprised of new plug housings, contacts and headers. Based on a 2.5mm (0.098”) centerline pitch, it is a very compact solution. The newly designed contact retainers provide Terminal Position Assurance (TPA). When inserted, the optional TPA retainers help prevent the contacts from backing out of the housings in applications with random vibration, and they help ensure full contact insertion within the housing. With board space increasingly at a premium, the EP 2.5 connector series offers an ideal interconnection solution for densely packed printed circuit boards.
EP 2.5 connector halves are available from 2 to 40 positions for discrete wires from 0.13 to 0.56mm2 (AWG 26 to 20).
Besides single row solutions, EP 2.5 connectors offer 8 to 40 position dual row wire-to-board and wireto-wire models. The wire-to-board dual row connector system offers vertical and right angle header options. The dual row wire-to-wire connector system offers both free-hanging and panel-mount options.
EP 2.5 housings and contacts were designed to help workers on the shop floor. The low insertion force terminals have an asymmetrical shape. This means they can only be loaded into the housing cavity one way – the right way.
EP 2.5 connectors provide a comprehensive connectivity solution with vertical and right angle headers, optional TPA retainers, wire-to-wire and wire-to-board options and a range of resin materials that include types meeting Glow Wire Test and UL 94 V-0 standards.
Additionally, EP 2.5 connectors are intermateable with similar products available in the market, facilitating simple retrofitting.
