Heilind Electronics, a leading global distributor of electronic components and authorized distributor for TE Connectivity (TE), a global leader in connectivity and sensors, introduces Power Versa-Lock 5.0 rectangular power connectors for wire-to-wire applications. These connectors provide a flexible power solution supporting a current rating of up to 15 A.
The connector series provides an optional IP67-rated perimeter interface and gang seals for waterproofing capabilities. In addition, the series offers a tab-and-receptacle contact design with four points of contact for greater reliability.
The Power Versa-Lock series is designed with a mounting clip on the cap housing to assist in reducing connector movement in high-vibration applications like washing machines. This feature replaces the need for manually installing wire ties to secure mounting clips, helping to reduce the manual labor required in the assembly process.
Optional terminal position assurance (TPA) and back cover accessories are also available for higher reliability. TPAs are offered for 2 x 3 unsealed applications, while back covers are available for 1 x 1, 1 x 2, and 1 x 3 sealed applications. In addition, the twist-lock version features a cap with a unique and patented 18-degree angle; this ensures additional safety by directing moisture away from the mated terminal area.
These robust connectors are ideal for sealed and unsealed applications in industrial and harsh environments, as well as in white goods.
