In industrial applications we need various connectors. “Various” usually means really various -almost indefinite amount of types, to have a hope to find the right type for our application in a given series of connectors.
High chance for success at searching for a suitable connector provides a group of connector „Soft shell“ from company TE Connectivity. In this group can be found the above mentioned series MATE-N-LOK, which can be securely marked as an industry standard. Series MATE-N-LOK is a four-component system consisting of 2 contacts (pin+socket) and from the connector housings (F+M).
MATE-N-LOK system of connectors provides two basic things usually expected from a connector - reliable contact and a mechanically stable connection of both connector parts. When we add to this an easy assembly and a huge amount of versions, we have a series which gives a presumption, that with these connectors can be solved majority of connections inside a given device. Standard versions, but also versions with sealing (IP56/57), circular, colored, panel/ PCB mount … all these are possibilities of one family. In one line can be 2-10 positions, in a 6-15 matrix.
Connectors have a high current handling capability of 19A/600V and a high-temperature housing material(nylon UL 94-V2/V0) also contributes to overall connector reliability.
