High Current Connectorsystem with 9.0 mm pitch

Connectors are the least noticed parts of an end product. Mostly installed on a PCB, they are usually invisible except for the external connection to the power source and are often underestimated. An electronic device without connectors? Unthinkable!

Completely against the trend of ever smaller pitches and component heights, W+P offers a giant in 9.0mm pitch. It also has its buyers, in this case products from the embedded computing sector and the general current supply of peripheral devices. This type of wire-to-wire connection in crimp technology is used in hard-to-reach applications that require a power supply with high currents.

The mechanically coded housing design of the 991 series allows a lockable connection by audibly joining the central locking of the pin housing to the female housing. This prevents inadvertent disconnection, while at the same time this type of fuse serves as reverse polarity protection.

Associated male and female contacts allow a suspended and detachable interface, robust crimp connections of this kind ensure high electrical and mechanical reliability, required for example in environments with high levels of shock and vibration.

The 991 series is available as an option with the following contact numbers: 02, 03, 04 and 06, applicable on a cable cross section of AWG 20 – 14, the connectors can be used for up to 15 A per contact. A copper alloy with a tin plated contact surface is offered as contact material; the insulators are made of thermoplastic material in compliance with UL94 V-2. Reliable functionality is guaranteed in a temperature range from -25°C to +85°C.

Interesting fields of application are areas that are difficult to access and require a current supply, that is mechanically resilient but at the same time floating mounted. Series 991 samples are available free of charge on request, data sheets can be downloaded from this homepage. (un)
