Connector system for power applications requiring a high current solution

Amphenol ICC’s Minitek Pwr Connector System

Amphenol ICC’s Minitek Pwr 5.7mm connector system for power applications requiring a high current solution is now available from TTI.

Featuring polarised mating geometry to prevent mis-mating and scoop-proof housings to prevent terminals from damage, Amphenol’s Minitek Pwr 5.7mm Connector System provides a vertical through-hole and wire-to-board solution targeted at industrial and instrumentation, data, communications, consumer and military applications.

This range of board connectors has contacts rated up to 23A each, made from high-conductivity copper with either tin or gold plating. As terminals are post-plated, they prevent corrosion from environmental contaminants, including salt spray and gas. The positive locking feature on the connector housing has a low thumb latch operation that ensures secured mating retention. Operating temperature range for the Minitek Pwr 5.7mm Connector System is -40⁰C to 105⁰C.

Electrical performance includes: low level contact resistance of 2mΩ max. (initial); insulation resistance of 1000MΩ min; voltage rating of 600V AC (RMS)/DC and contact resistance for tin plated options is 10mΩ and gold-plated options is 5mΩ max.
