Amphenol ICC Minitek 2.00mm Blind Mate Interface Connectors

Amphenol ICC’s Minitek 2.00mm Blind Mate Interface Connectors are compatible with panel-to-board connections. 

This design consists of a PCB header designed for blind mating with a panel-mount fixed or floating receptacle. The interface provides ±2mm of catching tolerance for easy mating, while the available floating receptacle provides ±1mm of x and y-axis misalignment to ease design tolerances for boards with multiple headers. 

Minitek 2.00mm BMI connectors are available with eight or twelve circuits. They use Minitek crimp contacts for 30AWG to 22AWG wires and rate 2A per contact.

The housings are fully polarized to prevent mismating, have a passive locking for high retention, and have a scoop-proof design to prevent damage while mating. 

  • Blind mate interface: ±2.00mm catching
  • Floating receptacle: ±1.00mm misalignment in x and y axes
  • 8 or 12 circuits
  • Existing crimp section and automated crimp tooling from 30AWG to 22AWG
  • Contact ratings: 2A/200V
  • Housings:
