The connector range consists of cable mount plugs and PCB mounted vertical receptacles that have the capacity to handle up to 40A current rating. Right angle and in-line versions are under development.
The overall size of the DF60 series has been designed with space saving in mind, the plug and receptacle housing are low profile with a mated height of only 30mm. The footprint dimensions are minimised by the small pitch size of 10.16mm.
The robust lock provides a positive tactile sensation and an audible click when mated. This confirms the connector is fully engaged guaranteeing complete electrical and mechanical connection. The lock is on the centre of the housing to avoid uneven locking and cable entanglement which is common with side locks. Furthermore multiple connectors can be mounted closer together side by side.
The plug utilises crimp contacts that have a unique 5-point contact internal structure. Two of the contact points are fixed in the upper section. The other three are in the lower section and are spring based allowing movement to follow the flat structure of the male contact during the mating operation. This provides high contact reliability, secure connection and strong resistance against vibration.
Keying variations are available to prevent mis-insertion of multiple connectors.
