The new Minipower and Micropower connectors are priced to offer significant savings and direct compatibility compared with existing leading brands on the market and are manufactured using the highest quality materials. Both ranges offer single and double row connectors up to 24-poles with fully insulated housings. Polarised to avoid inverted connection, Minipower and Micropower receptacle housings feature a friction lock for positive mating and male headers have locking ears for panel mounting applications.
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.
