Mill-Max Manufacturing Corp., Inc. has released a new set of double-row, pre-wired connectors in spring-loaded and target versions. These products combine high quality Mill-Max pins with the convenience of an 8″ pig-tail to suit a wide variety of applications.
The new double-row connectors — 889-22-0XX-70-501010 (spring-loaded) and 889-10-0XX-70- 502010 (target) — complement the company’s existing single-row, pre-wired products, offering a greater number of wiring options in a convenient package.
For applications where crimped-wire connections are specified, this more cost-effective solution eliminates the process of crimping wires to assembled connectors and can replace the time consuming and labor-intensive crimp and poke style connectors.
Both the spring-loaded and target connectors are available in four to 20 positions and are ready to use in a host of wire termination applications. The open-end wire offers flexible termination possibilities — such as soldering, crimping, splicing, or connecting to a terminal block.
The spring-loaded 889 series use high-reliability Mill-Max spring-loaded pins, making it an excellent choice for battery charging, low-power delivery, and quick-connect purposes. Both connectors feature precision-machined and gold-plated pins on .100″ (2.54 mm) centers with connector housings molded from high-temperature thermoplastic.
The spring-loaded pins have a maximum stroke of .055″ (1.4 mm) while the target connector has a burr-free mating surface. The 8″ (203 mm) long wires are 24 AWG stranded conductors per UL1007 with black PVC insulation and 7/32 stranding.
There’s a positive stop inside the connector so the pins cannot be dislodged if pull force is applied to the wires. The wire crimping is achieved using an 8-point crimp tool per M22520/1-01, ensuring the proper tensile retention is attained.
