Tyco Electronics has added coloured plugs, caps and headers to its existing Universal MATE-N-LOK connector family. A total of nine different colour options are now available, enabling colour coding and different colour schemes in harness and wiring systems. Improving visibility and aesthetics, new coloured MATE-N-LOK connectors meet system colour coding protocols and avoid losing any position as no additional keying component is required.
Designed for a wide range of general purpose industrial and commercial electronics applications including household appliances, industrial machinery, instrumentation, commercial and building equipment, colour coded Universal MATE-N-LOK connectors all benefit from UL recognition, CSA certification and VDE approvals, as well as being fully RoHS compliant.

Universal MATE-N-LOK connectors are based on 6.35mm centrelines and are available in wire-to-wire, wire-to-board, single row and double row configurations. Designers can select from either right angle or vertical headers for the wire-to-board versions. Contacts are crimped to wire and accept wire ranges from 12-10 AWG up to
30-26AWG.

The pin and socket contacts are brass or phosphor bronze with tin or gold plating. Housings and headers are available in UL 94V-2 and UL 94V-0 nylon.
