Molex EdgeMate Power Connector

Molex's Molex EdgeMate Power Connectors eliminate the need for a mating header. They offer positive PCB-locking and significant cost savings for wire-to-edge card terminations in appliance, industrial and lighting applications.

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 EdgeMate connectors 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.

Features and benefits include:

  • Mates directly to the PCB edge card without a mating header that leads to reduced inventory, bill-of-material and manufacturing costs without having to invest in headers.
  • Positive-lock design that offfers strong PCB-to-connector retention.
  • Polarized housing ensures correct orientation with the PCB.
  • Bifurcated (dual contact-point) terminals support up to 7.0A current that allows secondary current paths for long-term electrical performance and reliability.
  • Polarized crimp terminal that ensures correct terminal orientation and insertion.
  • Connectors without locking features (option) - Versions without lock give greater pricing flexibility to suit customer need.

Applications:

  • Consumer - Fitness equipment, HVAC equipment, home appliances and home entertainment systems
  • Industrial - Power supplies and wire-to-device
  • Solid-State Lighting - Indoor and outdoor illumination
