Meets the requirement of IEC 60335-1 and UL V-0.

Universal MATE-N-LOK cap and plug housings, as well as headers, are now available in material meeting the Glow Wire test (GWT) requirement according to IEC 60335-1 5th edition (750°C, without flame), plus the requirements of UL 94 V-0. Based on the well-established 6.35mm (0.25”) centerline pitch, the new housings are compatible with standard Universal MATE-N-LOK pins and sockets. Given that they meet both the GWT and V-0 requirements, the new housings and headers are targeted for use by manufacturers of appliances and other goods for the European and American markets.

All are natural color, PA 66 material. The caps are designed for panel mounting, but can also be used in free-hanging applications. The headers are offered with either pins or sockets. Single row models with 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 or 8 positions are offered in vertical and right angle versions. Double row 6 position and triple row 9 position models are offered as vertical headers.
