Wire-to-board connectors offer automotive-grade space-saving solution

The Amphenol FCI Basics WireLock connector, available now from TTI Europe, is a 1.8mm pitch wire-to-board solution. Its compact design addresses the growing need for space-saving automotive-grade connectors. WireLock is a double row connector system providing four coding types with varying colours.

The connector has a nominal current carrying capacity of 3A and supports cable wire gauge from 22AWG to 26AWG. It is available in 10 to 40 positions in double row with vertical and horizontal TH and SMT configurations. The connector is USCAR-2 V2 compatible and is reflow tin-plated to reduce mating force.

Typical applications areas include industrial instrumentation, robotics, automotive, battery management systems, and ADAS.
