Wire-to-board crimp receptacles and headers save PCB space

Freeing up valuable PCB space, the AmpModu wire-to-board receptacles with crimp contacts and shrouded headers occupy 38 per cent less space, says TE Connectivity.

The AmpModu wire-to-board crimp receptacles and shrouded headers have centreline distances of 2.0mm and occupy 38 per cent less space on a PCB than connectors with a 2.54 mm [0.1 inch] centre line, TE says.

TE’s wire-to-board receptacles offer a variety of housing styles and crimp contacts for wire sizes between 30 and 24 AWG [0.05 to 0.22mm2]. Receptacle assemblies provide a large and reliable contact surface between the header pin and receptacle contact by using phosphor bronze contacts with dual cantilever beams with gold or tin plating. Housings are available in a single and double row, from two to 25 positions per row, and wire termination is via TE’s recommended hand tooling or applicators.

Receptacle assemblies are intended for use with TE’s existing 2.0mm breakaway headers and new shrouded headers. Shrouded headers have a double row configuration and are available in vertical and right-angle versions with through-hole and surface mount termination variants.

The AmpModu 2.0mm product family includes a detent latching housing version for use in high-vibration industrial environments. All connector housings are moulded in a high temperature-resistant resin, suitable for reflow soldering process. The connectors offer a maximum current rating of 2.0A and a maximum operating voltage of 125V.

The AmpModu wire-to-board crimp receptacles and shrouded headers are suitable for PLC /IO devices, industrial robotics, servo drives, industrial automation and control equipment, material handling equipment, instrumentation and test equipment, as well as building and home automation devices.

TE Connectivity offers a broad range of connectivity and sensor solutions, proven in the harshest environments, enable advancements in transportation, industrial applications, medical technology, energy, data communications, and the home.

TE Connectivity has more than 8,000 engineers, working alongside customers in approximately 150 countries.
