Power double lock connectors consists of plug and cap housings for wire termination.

Secondary locking and ratings to 14A

Compact connectors designed for use in power circuit applications. Power double lock (PDL) connectors find application in refrigerators, air conditioners, washing machines, gas equipment, copying machines, and automatic vending machines.

Power double lock connectors are available in wire-to-wire (WTW), free-hanging, panel mount, and wire-to-board (WTB) configurations. These connectors can be used alone by inserting wire-terminated crimp snap-in contacts into the housing. However, in order to achieve more positive contact mounting, this connector system consists of plug and cap housings for wire termination, optional double lock plates, crimp contacts, and PC board pin headers. Contacts accept two wire size ranges: 28-22 [.089-.382 mm²] AWG (with insulation outer diameter of 1.3 to 2.0 mm) and 20-18 AWG [.601-.963 mm²] (with insulation outer diameter of 2.0 to 3.1 mm). With a voltage rating 300VAC (for 3.96 mm wire-to-wire, 6.5 mm wire-to-board, and 7.92 mm wire-to-board applications), or 50VAC (for 3.96 mm wire-to-board application), power double lock is rated up to 14 A per line. 

Product Insight

Power Double Lock Connectors

Power double lock contacts are phosphor bronze with pre-tin plating and designed without lances to prevent entanglement of contacts with one another. The receptacle contact gets loaded into the plug housings and the tab contact gets loaded into cap housings. The semi-inner locking system of the PDL design helps eliminate unmating by external force and the audible click helps indicate the connector system is fully latched.

The smooth compact design prevents snagging when mated. A double lock plate is available for both plug and cap housings to ensure positive loading and to help prevent contact back-out. The PDL headers offer a kink in the solder tail along with the kink in the mounting boss which secures the header on the board firmly while soldering. Board mounted headers are compatible with resin or conformal coatings (no drain holes).
