Drawer connectors are designed as an economical rack and panel connector. They are used in copying machines, control panels, power distribution boards, industrial equipment, power supplies and other electronic equipment.
Blind-mate drawer connectors feature excellent durability and provide low insertion and withdrawal force. Leaf-type herma - phroditic contacts ensure reliable, positive contact.
Contacts are on .197 [5.00] centerlines for signal circuits, and .260 [6.60] centerlines for power circuits (2-circuits at each end of the double row of contacts) for a total of 4. Row-to-row spacing is .390 [9.90].
Housings are made of UL 94V-0 rated thermoplastic and feature molded-in guide pins and sockets for positive connector mating.
Other features include wire outlets which provide for sufficient creep distance, plus mated assemblies are completely dust-proof.
Additional economies are achieved through the use of strip-form contacts suitable for high-speed automatic machine terminations. For prototype, maintenance and repair applications, contacts are available in loose piece for easy termination with hand crimping tools.
