Economy Power Connectors
TE Connectivity's (TE) Economy Power (EP) wire-to-board connector family is widely used for power circuit applications. Based on the proven EP version, the new and advanced EP II and EP 2.5 lines offer additional benefits.
EP II connectors are based on a .156" [3.96mm] pitch and are rated for 600VAC at up to 11A and thus offer potential for a larger range of applications along with 22-18 AWG [.321-.963 mm2] wire size. Up to 12-positions make it an ideal product family for delivering power to your circuit board.
The new EP 2.5 family is a compact version based on a .098" [2.5mm] pitch and is rated for 250VAC at up to an industry-leading 4.5A. With a 26 to 20 AWG [.121-.601 mm2] wire size, and up to 20-positions, EP 2.5 is ideally suited to deliver power to a board when space is at a premium.
Both EP II and EP 2.5 connectors offer two levels of mechanical and electrical reliability: A true locking latch prevents the plug housing and post header from vibrating apart, while an optional Terminal Position Assurance (TPA) retainer device helps assure the terminal is fully seated within its housing. Finally, both families offer a broad range of interconnects, including vertical, shrouded, and right angle headers along with resin materials that are offered in various colors and meet your glow wire requirements.
