TE Connectivity MATE-N-LOK Connectors

Reliably and Economically Group Multiple-Lead Connections
TE Connectivity MATE-N-LOK Connectors provide a highly reliable and economical means of grouping multiple-lead connections in today's computer, computer/peripheral equipment, business machines, entertainment centers, appliances and other sophisticated commercial equipment. The MATE-N-LOK family of connectors offers the design and features to answer these modern industry requirements. Reflow Capable Universal MATE-N-LOK: Reflow Capable Universal MATE-N-LOK Connectors are designed to streamline manufacturing processes with simple reflow soldering of PCB assemblies. The reflow capable universal MATE-N-LOK product line builds on a tested solution for wire-to-board applications. The thermoplastic housing is designed to withstand high temperatures associated with reflow soldering. This allows for easy transition to a full reflow assembly process. The headers are designed with polarization features, positive locking, and a low contact mating force allowing for easy mating. The standard .250” (6.35mm) center line allows for mating with TE’s existing universal MATE-N-LOK wire-to-board connectors. The components are ideal for appliances, HVAC equipment, industrial machinery, power supplies, security systems, and elevator/escalator applications. Universal MATE-N-LOK: Universal MATE-N-LOK connectors utilize a combination of pins and sockets intermixed in the plug and cap housings to achieve excellent electrical performance in a .250" (6.35mm) pitch design. Rated to 600VAC/VDC and 19A, these offer wire-to-wire, wire-to-panel, and wire-to-board configurations. Housings feature positive polarization, positive locking, and rear cavity identification for easy, error resistant assembly. Contacts are enclosed in the housings, have low mating force, and are removable for system flexibility. Universal MATE-N-LOK connectors offer numerous options including circular, flanged, bulkhead, sealed, and colored housings in various materials (including Glow Wire compliant) to offer solutions for many diverse applications. Another product line within this family is the commercial MATE-N-LOK connector system. These products are .200" (5.08mm) pitch and rated 250VAC/VDC and 19A. Glow Wire Universal MATE-N-LOK Housings and Headers meet 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. Featuring a 6.35mm (0.25”) centerline pitch, these housings are compatible with standard Universal MATE-N-LOK pins and sockets and are available with 2, 3, 4, 5 and 10 positions in a single row configuration. TE Connectivity also offers two row/6 position models, three row/9 position models, and four row/12 position models. Mini-Universal MATE-N-LOK: The Mini-Universal MATE-N-LOK connector system offers wire-to-wire and wire-to-board connections with contacts on a 4.14mm (.163") centerline and current ratings up to 9.5A max. per line. Plug and receptacle housings allow wire-to-wire and wire-to-panel configurations and header assemblies offer wire-to-board connections in vertical and right angle configurations. Wire-to-wire, free-hanging, or panel mount options are available in 1-15 position in-line, dual row, or matrix configurations and wire-to-board systems in a dual row and matrix configurations are available in 2-24 positions. Hermaphroditic housings are also available in 2-4 positions for free-hanging applications. Crimp, snap-in pin, and receptacle contacts are used to terminate 30-16 (0.05-1.2mm2) AWG wire with insulation diameters up to 3.20mm. The Mini-Universal MATE-N-LOK connector system also offers a splash-proof design allowing for use in areas where high humidity, intermittent liquid splashing, or foam-in applications require a sealed connector for improved electrical performance. The sealed system is available in select 2-16 positions. Micro MATE-N-LOK: Low profile Micro MATE-N-LOK connectors have a vertical height of less than 4.7mm - about 45% lower than other members of the product family. These soft-shell connectors include right-angle surface-mount headers and mating cable connectors. The line uses standard micro MATE-N-LOK contacts, with 24-20 and 30-26 AWG wire ranges. The connector features positive latching to prevent unmating. The 94V-0-rated nylon housing is available in black or natural colors. Contacts are phosphor bronze with a choice of tin or gold plating. The connectors are rated up to 5A and 250V. This low-profile connector joins the proven Micro MATE-N-LOK line of soft-shell connectors widely used in appliance, instrumentation, industrial machinery, home equipment, and security system industries. The low-profile version was created to meet the specific demands of the lighting industry, but applications are found in other industries, as well. Commercial MATE-N-LOK: Another product within the MATE-N-LOK family is the Commercial MATE-N-LOK, which offers both wire-to-wire and wire-to-board connection. Commercial MATE-N-LOK connectors are based on a .200" (5.08mm) centerline pitch and are rated for 250 VAC or VDC. Up to 16 positions are available for Commercial MATE-N-LOK along with the availability of panel mount or free hanging versions. The contacts for Commercial MATE-N-LOK accept a wire size of 30-14 AWG (.05-2.0mm²). LINK
