Molex’s EdgeMate power connectors offer positive PCB-locking and significant cost savings for wire-to-edge-card terminations in appliance, industrial and lighting applications. The devices are now available from TTI, a leading specialist distributor of passive, connector, electromechanical and discrete components
EdgeMate connectors are designed to help reduce cost by eliminating the need for mating headers in a wire-to-edge card. The hallmark feature of the devices is its highly robust locking mechanism, which enables the mated (and wired) assembly to withstand high-vibration or shock operating conditions. Added electrical reliability is achieved with the crimp terminal, known for its cantilever beam and dual-contact-point design for high normal-force and current-carrying capacity. A polarized housing ensures the correct orientation with the PCB.
