Maximum current rating of 0.062" Commercial Pin and Socket connectors is limited by the maximum operating temperature of the housings which is 105°C including the temperature rise of the contacts which is a maximum of 30°C. There are several variables which have a direct effect on this maximum current-carrying capability for a given connector and must be considered for each application.
Larger wire will carry more current since it has less internal resistance to current flow and thus generates less heat. Longer wire lengths also enhance current-carrying capabilities since the wire conducts heat away from the connector.
In general, the more circuits in a connector, the less current can be carried.
