TE Connectivity’s single- and dual-row Economy Power (EP) 2.5 is a wire-to-board crimp connector which includes housings, contacts and headers with a 2.5mm pitch, offering a compact connection system.
The connector is tested for secondary power-circuit applications, with contacts rated for 250V AC at 3A. It offers the option of combining power and signals in a single connector. The connector may be mated with similar products for simple retrofitting.
The EP 2.5 connector is available in a range from 2 to 20 positions, and can be used to terminate as many as 20 discrete wires, in 22 AWG to 26 AWG sizes, in a single section of a PCB. Space is often at a premium in modern electronics designs, and the EP 2.5 connector greatly simplifies the connection of power circuits in densely packed circuit boards.
Establishing a correct and reliable interconnection during assembly is easy as the connector includes asymmetrically-shaped, low insertion-force terminals that can be inserted into the housing in only one orientation.
The headers are shrouded and the housings have polarisation tabs to prevent post misalignment and other problems caused by forcibly mating connector halves incorrectly.
Additionally, a positive locking lever on the outside of the plug housing engages with its counterpart on the receptacle housing during mating to establish a mechanical lock, which produces an audible click to confirm full mating of the connector.
