These low-cost green pluggable connectors provide a useful way of joining cables together in direct current (DC) circuits, up to 5A continuous and 10A for short periods (<5s). The male connector features two high quality screw terminals while the female connector has two straight pins for soldering on to. The male and female elements connect together with a small latch to ensure the connection is maintained, while they are only allowed to combine in one orientation to prevent swapping the polarity unintentionally.
Each purchase includes two male and two female connectors (as pictured).
Pin pitch: 5.08mm
Constant current rating: 5A
Short-term current rating: 10A (for up to 5s)
The two straight pins extending from the female connector may be soldered either to cables or mounted into a PCB.
Please note that other suppliers may quote these connectors as 15A-rated, but this is not a realistic value as the connectors will heat up a lot at this current. Our rating is based on real-world testing.
