TE Connectivity – 2.5mm-centreline connector family ideal for space-constrained signal circuits


TE Connectivity’s (TE) Economy Power 2.5 wire-to-board and wire-to-wire connector family is designed for signal circuit applications.

Based on the proven Economy Power connector and featuring a compact 2.5mm centreline, the advanced Economy Power 2.5 line connectors are rated for 250V AC and support current throughputs of up to 4.2A.

Both standard and new low insertion-force contacts are available. Contacts are sized to accept either 26 to 22 AWG wire or 24 to 20 AWG wire. Each contact features a wire barrel, insulation barrel and locking window. The wire barrel has serrations which aid wire retention. Asymmetrical terminals can only be loaded one way within the housing.

The contacts are available in strip form for termination using an automatic machine.
