 Low Profile Poke-Home Connector

Low Profile Poke-Home Connector

AVX Corporation introduced the lowest profile poke-home connector currently available on the market. Featuring its industry-proven 2 mm dual beam, high spring-force, phosphor bronze poke-home contacts in a sleek 3.0 mm pitch by 2.5 mm high SMT package, the  horizontal 9296 Series connector is certified to UL 1977 and CAN/CSA C22.2 specifications, and accepts any combination of 20-26 AWG solid or stranded wires, providing quick, reliable, and cost effective wire-to-board termination in a broad range of harsh industrial, commercial, and medical applications.

Rated for 300 V , up to 8 A, and operating temperatures spanning -40 °C to +130 °C, the new low-profile 9296 Series poke-home connectors, available in 1 to 6 positions, meet harsh industrial performance standards and provide maximum mechanical stability and wire retention despite enabling simple strip-and-insert electrical connections and twist-and-pull wire extraction. Specific applications for which the series is ideally suited include: machine controls, such as motors, drives, solenoids, sensors, fans, and pumps; commercial building controls and security and fire sensors; medical equipment and sensors; smart grid meters, breakers, and panels; and SSL/LED bulbs, fixtures, signage, and streetlights.

Smaller and more functional than the only directly competing connector on the market featuring a 2.5 mm vs. 2.7 mm height and 1-6 positions vs. 1-3, accepting 20-26 AWG solid or stranded wire vs. 22-26 AWG solid, and offering current and voltage ratings up to 8 A vs. 3 A, the RoHS-compliant 9296 Series horizontal SMT poke home connector features a mechanical durability of three cycles and is supplied on tape and reel for single contact automated placement and SMT reflow. Lead time for the series is stock to nine weeks.
