FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
TE Connectivity Announces Expansion of VAL-U-LOK Connectors with Color-Coded Housings
TE Connectivity has expanded its popular VAL-U-LOK connector family with a choice of red, black, or blue housings in addition to the standard white already offered. Color coding helps make identification of different circuits during assembly and maintenance simpler and clearer. The colored housings are available for both wire-mount and board-mount connectors.
The VAL-U-LOK connector system is a low-cost, wire-to-wire and wire-to-board connector system with 4.2 x 4.2 mm centerline. This connector system can be used in a variety of applications, including the HVAC, vending, gaming and appliance industries. VAL-U-LOK connectors are also intermateable with AMP-DUAC connectors.
Sizes range from 2 to 24 positions for double-row configurations and 3 to 5 positions for single-row versions. The header assemblies come with pre-loaded contacts and may be installed on the printed circuit board manually or automatically using robotic equipment. All housings are polarized for easier mating and locking latches help maintain reliable connections.
This system is available in UL 94 V-2 or UL 94 V-0 flammability rated nylon with contacts in brass or phosphor bronze with tin or gold plating. With a RoHS-compliant lead-free line to help promote a cleaner environment, the connector system is UL Component Recognized and CSA Certified.
