TE Connectivity Mini-Universal MATE-N-LOK Connector System

Comprehensive connector system includes splash-proof and hermaphroditic housing options

The Mini-Universal MATE-N-LOK Connector System from TE Connectivity (TE) offers designers a wide range of wire-to-wire and wire-to-board connection options in 1-24 positions in in-line, dual-row and matrix configurations. The connectors accommodate contacts on a 4.14 mm centerline spacing with current ratings of up to 9.5A per wire.

The system includes plug and receptacle housings for wire-to-wire and wire-to-panel configurations, and pin header assemblies for vertical or right-angle wire-to-board connections. The system also includes splash-proof connectors for use in areas with high humidity or where they may be exposed to intermittent liquid splashing or foam. The option of a hermaphroditic housing design for wire-to-wire connections can reduce the range of part numbers required for a design.

All the one-piece molded housings in the Mini-Universal MATE-N-LOK Connector System are polarized to ensure proper plug-to-cap mating and have a locking mechanism offering a contact retention force of 9lb.

The splash-proof connectors consist of either single or gang wire seals and an interface seal used with specific plug and cap housings. The sealed plug housings can also be mated to the standard Mini-Universal MATE-N-LOK headers without drain holes where a sealed wire-to-board connection is required.

The Mini-Universal MATE-N-LOK connector system uses lanceless contacts and can be used with 30-16 AWG wire with insulation diameters up to 3.2mm. Pins and sockets can be accommodated in the same housing and can be removed without tools.
