DF60 Series, 10.16mm Pitch, High Current, Wire-to-Board Connector


HIROSE Electric Co. Ltd, a world-class manufacturer in connectors, has extended the compact and low-profile DF60 series of robust Wire-to-Board and Wire-to-Wire connectors to meet the increased demand for high powered connectors offering advanced reliability for industrial equipment.

The connector range consists of cable mount female crimp sockets and board mount vertical, right angle and panel mount in-line male headers that have the capacity to handle up to 65A (max) current rating.

The overall size of the DF60 series has been designed with space saving in mind, the plug and receptacle housings are low profile with a mated height of only 30mm using the vertical header. The footprint dimensions are minimised by the small pitch size of 10.16mm.

The robust lock provides a positive tactile sensation and an audible click when mated. This confirms the connector is fully engaged guaranteeing complete electrical and mechanical connection. The lock i s on the centre of the housing to avoid uneven locking and cable entanglement which is common with side locks. In addition, multiple connectors can be mounted closer together side by side.

The cable mount female socket housing utilises crimp contacts that have a unique 5-point contact internal structure. Two of the contact points are fixed in the upper section. The other three are in the lower section and are spring based allowing movement to follow the flat structure of the male contact during the mating operation. This provides high contact reliability, secure connection and strong resistance against vibration. Keying variations are available in black and red to prevent incorrect insertion when multiple connectors are used.

A new DF60F version has been introduced to provide contact touch protection to the user by eliminating finger contact with the contacts for safety.

DF60 series is part of the EnerBee product family. The EnerBee family features wire-to-board and wire-to-wire power connectors to provide technically advanced connectivity solutions for industrial power sources.
