TE Connectivity D-2970 Dynamic Series PCB Connector

TE Connectivity's D-2970 Dynamic Series PCB Connectors are compact 5mm-pitch wire-to-board PCB connectors with field-installable, time-saving push-in clamp terminations.

The push-in clamp and single-hand-operating center-locking lever – both designed to require no tooling – making it possible to cut mating time by up to 90% compared with connectors using screw-latch locking systems.

The center-locking lever offers audible mating feedback to ensure safe mating, while a lower insertion force allows users to release the wires without injuring their fingertips. An IP20 "finger-safe" housing also prevents unintended operator contact with live components.

TE Connectivity's D-2970 Dynamic Series PCB Connectors are offered in configurations with three or four positions.

Three angled male headers are available, and all designs of the male header mate with the same female plug for design flexibility.

The D-2970 Series operates at up to 20A and 400V at a typical temperature of 55°C without further derating and incorporates numerous features to meet strict safety requirements.

These connectors provide a width-savings of up to 26% for a two-pole connector or 13% for a six-pole connector compared with connectors using side locking. This allows a side-stackable PCB mounting of several headers next to each other.

The D-2970 Series is ideal for industrial machinery, automation and control, and building automation.
