Hi-Current Connector from Hirose
High current connector.
Simi Valley, CA — Hirose has developed the DF63 connector, a robust wire-to-board connector that combines small size with high-current capacity and high reliability. The connector has a 3.96mm pitch, provides a high current rating of up to 15 amps, and is suitable for use with #16 to #18 AWG wire. Current capacity varies with pin count and wire size. This compact DF63 Series connector results in 30 percent less occupied PC board space compared to other connectors.

The rugged crimp contact system with multi-contact points increases reliability and performance. The clear tactile and audible "click" during engagement ensures complete mating. The locking structure provides strong retention with a minimum locking strength of 35N for demanding applications. The center position lock system and keying options allow side-by-side mounting to reduce overall package size. The DF63 also uses individual contact silos which make the connector finger-safe in operation.

This series is available in straight, right-angle and in-line variations ranging from 1 to 6 contact positions (right-angle and in-line variation being available in late 2014). The DF63 is also suitable for potting or resin sealing up to a 5mm high.

The small size and high durability of the DF63 Series wire-to-board connector makes it well-suited for a wide range of applications including industrial machinery, industrial robotics, medical devices, networking equipment/servers, smart meters, home electronics, white goods, office equipment and gaming equipment. The DF63 Series is RoHS compliant and UL and TUV certified. With an operating temperature range of -35 to +105°C, the DF63 limits contact resistance to less than 10mΩ maximum, and has an insulation resistance of 1000MΩ minimum at 500VDC.
