AMPMODU horizontal and vertical receptacles

Tyco Electronics has introduced a line of AMPMODU horizontal and vertical receptacles. The surface-mount and through-hole receptacles are suitable for many board-to-board applications in industrial and commercial electronics, aerospace, computers, communications and other electronic devices.

The AMPMODU line includes single- and double-row arrangements to meet most motherboard/daughterboard applications. The 0.100-inch centerline product mates with unshrouded and breakaway style headers and are available in several varieties.

The horizontal versions include a Mod II through-hole product with closed entry housings and a surface-mount version also with closed entry housings. The vertical models include the through-hole Mod II product with a top-entry, a Mod IV through-hole product with dual entry (top and bottom) and Mod IV surface-mount receptacles with the dual entry feature.

Using a dual-cantilever beam contact design, the single-contact current is rated up to 3A. Fully energized connectors are capable of carrying up to 2A. Mating cycle life is rated at up to 200 cycles. Housings are molded from high temperature 94-V-0 thermoplastic and the contacts are phosphor bronze. This product is recognized by UL and certified by CSA. AMPMODU horizontal and vertical receptacles are RoHS compliant.

Pricing for AMPMODU horizontal and vertical receptacles begins at 3 cents to 4.75 cents per line depending on style, plating and quantities. Many styles are available for immediate delivery.
