The new JWPS Series wire-to-board, wire-to-wire connectors, recently introduced by JST Corporation (Waukegan, IL) offers engineers design flexibility with its small form factor solution for a waterproof IP67 rated product that is ideal for extreme moisture or submersion applications. Major uses include automotive, appliance, photovoltaic, underwater cameras, and other related consumer and commercial devices. Their unique construction includes a seal ring that protects from moisture, dirt, scratches, and cracks by completely sealing at the mating side that is contained in the header or tab housing depending on which series is being used. Other features include:
- From 2 to 4 circuits on a 2.0 mm (.079”) pitch (contact to contact) and 4.0 mm (.158”) pitch row to row spacing.
- Overall size when mated is just 30.2 mm (1.189”) for the wire-to-wire and just 21.0 mm (.827”) for the wire-to-board version.
- Contacts rated at 6 Amps (AC/DC), 300 V AC/DC.
- Temperature range of -55 C to +85 C including temperature rise in applying electrical current.
