Ideal for compact applications, the Micro-Lock Plus Wire-to-Board Connector System provides electrical and mechanical reliability in a high-temperature design that meets automotive and other industry requirements
Micro-Lock Plus terminal retention force provides electrical reliability for automotive and other applications in rugged environments. Rated at a 105˚C operating temperature and 1.5A current rating, the Micro-Lock Plus Connector is ideal for general market applications. Rugged applications can be subject to shock, vibration or rough handling that can dislodge terminals and cause signal interference.
Micro-Lock Plus tin-bismuth plating offers reliability and lower applied costs. Tin plating can sometimes cause whiskering and signal intermittency, while more durable gold plating comes with a higher cost.
Micro-Lock Plus Connectors have a positive latch that provides an audible click, ensuring a secure mate. In microminiature wire-to-board applications, operators can sometimes mistakenly fail to ensure connectors are fully mated. This, in turn, can lead to end-product failure.
Micro-Lock Plus Connector System is the smallest connector currently on the market with a positive lock. Engineers no longer have to choose between compactness and retention security. Often designers have to forgo a positive lock on a connector due to space constraints, sacrificing retention security.
