The AUH Series of wire-to-board, crimp-style, disconnectable connectors, featuring a mated height of 1.85 mm, offer greater flexibility and reliability for high-density applications, says developer JST Corp. The polarized, side-entry (right angle), surface-mount connectors feature secure friction locking when mated. They incorporate a socket half that’s mated with the header from the vertical direction; wires come out of the socket in the horizontal direction. Such construction allows the header to be placed anywhere on the printed-circuit board, enabling component placement all around the header without causing mating concerns. The series is available in three (two power/one signal) and five (four poser/one signal) circuits with a 5.0 A (ac/dc) rating, using a 22 AWG wire at 30 V ac/dc. Contacts accommodate AWG 30 to 22 wire sizes, and are gold-plated over nickel underplated copper alloy base material. Operating temperature range from ‒25 to +85°C, including temperature rise in applying electrical current. The headers, molded with RoHS-compliant 94V-0 PBT material, have insertion guides to facilitate and better secure mating.
