JST's ZE series wire-to-board crimp style connectors are designed with a secure locking device to ensure connector-mating integrity even under adverse conditions. These SMT and through-hole connectors are polarized and have a positive locking feature when mating to headers, including an audible click and tactile feedback when mated. The uniquely constructed contact is easily inserted into the housing with low insertion force. These 1.5 mm (059.”) pitch, top and side entry connectors are ideal for consumer, commercial and industrial high- density applications.
The disconnectable, crimp-style ZE connectors are available with 2 to 16 positions rated 2.0 A AC/DC at 100 V AC/DC. Wire sizes AWG 30 to 24 are accommodated. The functional temperature range of the connectors is -25°C to +85°C (including temperature rise in applying electrical current). Socket housing is 94V-O rated PBT material. Contacts are phosphor bronze and tin-plated. Standard reeled contacts are offered for bench mounted or fully automatic application tooling while mini-reeled contacts are offered for hand-held mini-reel tooling. Header plating is lead free and complies with European and China RoHS directives. SMT headers are provided on embossed tape for automatic insertion equipment.
