Colour coded connector housings

28 April 2010 Interconnection

Tyco Electronics has given its VAL-U-LOK connector family a choice of red, black and blue housings in addition to the standard white previously offered. The coloured housings are available for both wire-mount and board-mount connectors.

The VAL-U-LOK connector system is a low-cost, wire-to-wire and wire-to-board connector system with 4,2 x 4,2 mm centreline. This connector system can be used in a variety of applications, including the HVAC, vending, gaming and appliance industries. Sizes range from two to 24 positions for double-row configurations and three to five positions for single-row versions. The header assemblies come with pre-loaded contacts and may be installed on the printed circuit board manually or automatically using robotic equipment. All housings are polarised for easier mating and locking latches help maintain reliable connections.

This system is available in UL 94 V-2 or UL 94 V-0 flammability rated nylon with contacts in brass or phosphor bronze with tin or gold plating. With a RoHS-compliant lead-free line, the connector system is UL component recognised and CSA certified.
