TE High Current VAL-U-LOK Connectors

TE Connectivity (TE) introduces an extension of the VAL-U-LOK connector product line to provide a higher 13 amp maximum current capability on a 4.2 mm centerline spacing. The new products offer a 13 amp maximum current rating, as compared to the 9 amp maximum rating of other VAL-U-LOK connectors. New vertical headers are offered from 2-24 positions, and in a choice of UL 94 V-0 or Glow Wire test/UL94 V-2 or V-0 material. The new high current vertical headers are available with or without polarization pegs, and with or without drain holes. The new headers mate with existing UL 94 V-0 flammability and Glow Wire test housings populated with new high conductivity socket terminals offered in 16 AWG and 18-22 AWG. The high current pin and socket contacts are also designed for use in housings suitable for wire-to-wire applications.
