Mini-Universal MATE-N-LOK Connectors

Proper mating, less accidental disengagement

Polarized housings and a latching mechanism help assure properly mated connectors that stay connected.

The contacts are completely enclosed in housings, have low mating force, and are removable to maintain flexibility in the system.  Available in standard panel mount, free hanging, and wire-to-board capability, the Mini-Universal MATE-N-LOK connector system also offers a sealed connector system ideal wherever moisture resistance is required or where there is high humidity, intermittent liquid splashing, or foam-in applications.

Product Overview

Mini-Universal MATE-N-LOK

The Mini-Universal MATE-N-LOK connector system offers wire-to-wire and wire-to-board connections with contacts on a 4.14 mm [.163] centerline and current ratings up to 9.5 amps max. per line. Plug and receptacle housings allow wire-to-wire and wire-to-panel configurations and header assemblies offer wire-to-board connections in vertical and right angle configurations. Wire-to-wire, free-hanging, or panel mount options are available in 1-15 position in-line, dual row, or matrix configurations and wire-to-board systems in dual row and matrix configurations are available in 2-24 positions. Hermaphroditic housings are also available in 2-4 positions for free-hanging applications. Crimp, snap-in pin, and receptacle contacts are used to terminate 30-16 [0.05-1.2 mm2] AWG wire with insulation diameters up to 3.20 mm.

The Mini-Universal MATE-N-LOK connector system also offers a splash-proof design allowing for use in areas where high humidity, intermittent liquid splashing, or foam-in applications require a sealed connector for improved electrical performance. The sealed system is available in select 2-16 positions.
