Pico-Lock Connector System

Molex's Pico-Lock system offers an ideal combination of low-profile, high-current capacity, and durable locks for any application requiring space savings and secure mating retention. It is able to meet these requirements by offering a 1.50 mm pitch that can accommodate 3.0 A, and a unique, side positive-lock design to achieve the ultra-low profile. The system also offers other robust features such as friction locks for additional mating assurance and visual mating confirmation, and a wide solder tab that wraps up into the header and around the housing for additional PCB retention and mechanical system assurance. A small, thin system like this might normally be difficult for operators to mate. A guide rib on the housing addresses this concern by providing polarization along with mating guidance. The system is available in 6-10 circuit sizes and RoHS and low-halogen compliant material. Contacts are gold-plated for durability and reliable electrical performance.
