Kona 8.5mm Pitch High Reliability Power Connector

Specify high current and high quality for maximum power in extreme conditions. With 8.5mm pitch and individually shrouded connections, you can achieve up to 60A and 3000V per contact. The tough resilient housings protect the connections from physical knocks and damage.

Vibration and shock resilience are built into the design, with 6-finger Beryllium Copper alloy contacts for electrical continuity and good spring force properties. Connectors are available in 2, 3 or 4 pin counts, in a compact single-row configuration. Male PCB connectors are throughboard with additional board fixings for strain relief. Female and male cable housings are supplied with thumbscrews fitted. Cable contacts are ready for 8AWG cables to be soldered before assembly to the housing.
