Minipower connectors are 4.2mm pitch and are rated for applications up to 9A. The connectors comprise male and female crimp terminals fitted into their respective housings to create wire-to-wire connections. By using PCB mounting headers and female housings with crimp terminals, wire-to-board connections can be achieved. Straight and right-angle headers are available.
Micropower is a smaller footprint system on a 3mm pitch and rated for currents up to 5A. Advantageous where space is restricted, the Micropower connectors also have a surface mount header option available for highly integrated applications.
Applications for both Minipower and Micropower connector systems include consumer appliances, medical equipment, computer peripherals, robotics, vending machines, HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning), power supplies, lighting and security.
