TE Connectivity Power Double Lock (PDL) Connectors

The power double lock connectors are available in wire-to-wire, free-hanging, panel mount and wire-to-boardPower Double Lock configurations. This connector system consists of plug and cap housings for wire termination, optional double lock plates, crimp contacts and PC board pin headers, and is available in four contact centerline spacings: 3.96 mm, 6.5 mm, 7.92 mm and 13.00 mm. The power double lock connector system accepts 26-16 AWG wire with insulation diameters up to 3.1 mm and is rated up to 14 Amps per line.

The PDL contacts are phosphor bronze with pre-tin plating and designed without lances to prevent entanglement of contacts with one another. The receptacle contact gets loaded into the plug housings and the tab contact gets loaded into cap housings.

The semi-inner locking system of the PDL design helps eliminate unmating by external force and the audible click helps indicate the connector system is fully latched. The smooth compact design prevents snagging when mated.
