XL connectors are reliable wire-to-wire connectors, used for such electrical and
electronic equipment as home appliances, vending machines, and office machines.
- Reliable housing construction
Since all the contacts in this connector are individually and totally surrounded by housing walls (egg-crate style), and since the contact pitch is 5.0mm (.197"), the electrical creep distances and dielectric spacings are great enough to meet most safety requirements. In addition, the housings are sturdy enough to prevent deformation and ensure smooth mating.
Contacts can be inserted into the housing easily and smoothly.
The box-shaped contact used successfully in the VH and NH connectors is used as a socket contact in the XL connectors. This contact covers a wide range of applications from low voltage, low-current signal circuits to power supply circuits.
XL connectors can be used for wire-to-wire connection and for printed circuit board connection.
