Pushing the boundaries on signal current carrying capabilities - 2.00mm Pitch High Reliability Datamate Connector Accessory
The T-Contact is a single-piece beryllium copper contact capable of up to 8.5A when used on 2mm pitch Datamate J-Tek. The patented design uses a 6-finger construction to improve the current-carrying capacity of the existing Datamate contact.
The design of the T-Contact brings a number of performance benefits:
Current Rating - up to 8.5A max (dependent on number of contacts)
The range consists of a crimp cable female contact and associated dual row J-Tek housings. These are all sold separately. In the following part numbers, xx is the total number of contacts the housing accommodates, from 04 to 50 (even numbers only):
To crimp these contacts, Hand Crimp Tool M22520/2-01 and Positioner Z80-444 are required. Insertion Tool Z80-280 is required to fit the crimped contacts into the housings.
Markets and Applications
Typical uses for the Datamate T-Contact include many applications where high-reliability connectors are already specified, but where power requirements or size constraints are increasing. These include:
Aviation - UAVs, radar and other avionics, in-flight systems and engines or power systems
