Stackable High Current PCB Connectors

The Economy Power product line features wire-to-board connectors for compact power systems requiring a large current carrying capacity. The original Economy Power (EP) connectors are rated for 7.5A and 250VAC, while the more advanced Economy Power II (EP II) connectors support up to 11A and 600VAC on the same standard 3.96mm pitch design. With high current limits and a compact stackable design, EP and EP II connectors can be used for both power and signal applications, including household appliances, industrial machinery, and lighting. The connection is secured with an audible locking latch and optional terminal position assurance (TPA) devices. For higher power systems, contacts are available with increased mating force and current rating.

Economy Power II Connectors

Economy Power II (EP II) connectors are based on the 3.96mm standard pitch, but offer higher current and voltage rating than many comparable offerings. Recently added models include glow wire tested (GWT) materials and new discrete terminal position assurance (TPA) devices. These connectors are ideal for delivering power to your circuit board (PCB).
