The Economy Power 2.5 (EP 2.5) connector is a single row or dual row crimp connector system. Based on a 2.5mm (0.098”) centerline pitch, it is a very compact solution. The product line is comprised of housings, contacts, headers and optional contact retainers. The newly designed contact retainers provide Terminal Position Assurance (TPA). When inserted, these optional TPA retainers help ensure full contact insertion within the housing, and they help prevent the contacts from backing out of the housings in applications with random vibration. 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).
