FCI, a leading supplier of connectors and interconnect systems, has announced the extension of the RotaConnect® family with a Wire-to-Board solution. The Wire-to-Board (WtB) connector mates horizontally with the existing Board-to-Board version, which is hermaphroditic and surface mount soldered to the PCB.
The 3.00mm pitch RotaConnect® WtB features a dual beam spring contact design, delivering high-performance and reliability. Designed with a passive latch for housing retention, the housing protects the pins and prevents mis-matching. Housings are available in 2 and 4 positions.
RotaConnect® WtB provides power to the LED printed circuit board in a string of rigid printed circuit board light strips. The contacts accept stranded copper wire with wire ranges from 30 to 22 AWG and the maximum current rated is up to 5A. The operating voltage is 125V AC and temperature range of -40°C up to +125°C.
The RoHS Compliant RotaConnect® WtB is ideal for control boards, sensors, actuators, rigid LED strips and automatic lighting.
