Wire-to-board connectors

AUH Series wire-to-board, crimp style connectors from JST feature subminiature size, design flexibility, and reliable contact construction for high density applications. The 1.85-mm (0.073-in) pitch, side entry, surface-mount technology disconnectable connectors are polarized and have a secure friction locking feature when mated. Suited for LED light applications, the connectors feature a socket half mated with the header from the vertical direction with horizontal wires, allowing header placement anywhere on the printed circuit board without mating concerns. Connectors are available in 3 and 5 circuits with a 5.0 A ac/dc rating. Wire sizes AWG 30 to 22 are accommodated, and temperature range is -250 to +850°C (-418 to +1562°F). Headers are molded of RoHS-compliant material and feature insertion guides for secure mating.
