Compact wire-to-wire and wire-to-board connectors fit in tight spaces
The Hirose DF62 series connectors feature strong unmating force and high resistance to shock and vibration, giving reliable power connections. The DF62W is a water-resistant version of the DF62 connector.
Hirose has introduced the DF62 and DF62W series of connectors, which are ideal for making wire-to-wire and wire-to-board connections in small spaces.
The low-profile DF62 series features a plug and socket with mated dimensions of just 18.6 mm in length. The connectors have a secure positive locking mechanism, providing tactile feedback and an audible click to confirm correct engagement. Despite their small size, the connectors offer an impressive lock strength of 50 N. The lock structure includes a slot for easy visual confirmation of complete mating.
Highly reliable crimp contacts provide robust resistance against rough handling and vibration. The female contact’s box-shaped head acts as a mating guide, ensuring smooth and reliable connections while preventing contact buckling. These connectors are available in various versions, including the DF62C with a lock guard, and the DF62P panel-mount plug.
The DF62W series is a water-resistant version of the DF62 with a slightly longer mated length of as little as 27.1 mm. The connectors’ user-friendly design allows crimped wires to be inserted directly into the housing without additional tooling. Reliable barrel crimp contacts provide strong resistance against rough operation and vibration.
