TE Connectivity – High-current connectors comply with flammability standards


TE Connectivity’s (TE) economy power and economy power II wire-to-board connectors are widely used in power circuits which have a large current-carrying capacity.

The economy power connectors are rated for a continuous current of up to 7.5A. In the economy power II series, this maximum current value rises to 11A.

Terminal Position Assurance (TPA) devices are available in the economy power II series. TPA helps to ensure that the contacts are fully seated in the housing.

This helps to avoid downtime and costly service calls to repair equipment failures that are due to a backed- out contact. In addition, a latch helps to prevent unintended disconnection.

The two connector families offer a variety of housing and header styles and configurations in Glow Wire-compatible material.
