TE Connectivity Economy Power Connectors

TE Connectivity’s Economy Power 2.5 connectors are a compact and comprehensive wire-to-wire and wire-to-board interconnect solution for densely packed PCBs in household appliances, HVAC, and industrial machinery. 

The EP 2.5 series has a 2.5-millimeter centerline pitch and is offered with vertical and right-angle headers in single and dual row configurations with up to 40 positions.
