Basic Requirements Information
Q: What are the current and voltage requirements for your application?
The signal double lock connector system has a maximum current rating of 3 Amps per line and is rated for 250 Volts AC/DC.
Q: What are the wire type and size requirements?
A: The signal double lock connector system is approved for use with 26-20 AWG wire with a wire insulation range between 0.93 mm and 1.8 mm.
Q: What are the number of positions and available space?
A: The signal double lock connector system is available in 2-12 position wire-to-board and 2-10 position wire-to-wire configurations on a 2.5 mm pitch. The overall mated length of the free-hanging system is 22.6 mm and the maximum height with the standard profile header is 13.7 mm while the maximum height with the high-profile header is 19.2 mm.
Q: What are the operating temperature requirements?
A: The signal double lock connector system has a maximum operating temperature of 105°C. For more information regarding operating temperatures refer to Product Specification 108-5459.
Q: Is contact back-out a concern? Do you need confirmation that the contacts are seated?
A: The signal double lock connector system offers an optional double lock plate. The purpose of the double lock plate is to allow the contacts to be fully seated in the housing.
Do you need to differentiate this connector from other connectors in the application?
The signal double lock connector system offers multiple options of colored housings for ease of connector identification during manufacturing and assembly.
Q: What is the benefit of choosing high-profile over standard-profile headers?
A: The signal double lock connector system offers high-profile headers for applications where there will be additional processing or resin coating of the PCB’s during the manufacturing process.
Q: What are the flammability requirements for your application?
Signal double lock connectors are offered with various housings rated UL 94 V-0, and meeting the Glow Wire Test according to IEC 60335-1 5th edition.
