This specification covers the requirements for application of ANEN Power Product DJL Series: True Hot Plug, Blind Mating Mixed Signal and Power Connectors. These connectors are designed for use in pluggable wire-toboard applications of power supplies. The connectors are available in a variety of custom configurations. The pin side connector accepts pin contacts, and the socket side connector accepts socket contacts. The contact cavities on both sides of the connector are marked for circuit identification.
The contacts accept wire sizes 24 through 1/0 AWG. Contact sizes 20, 16, and 12 are available in crimp type, and solder type terminations. In addition, contact size 12 is available in hot plug, specifically designed for current interruption capability. Contact size 0 and 4 is available in crimp type termination, internal thread and external thread for ring lug mounting and bus bar mounting. Pin contacts (except size 0 and 4) are available in three lengths: standard, pre mate, and post mate for flexibility in contact sequencing. The contacts contain an active element, or crown band, which ensures maximum surface contact area, allows even insertion and withdrawalforces, and provides shock and vibration resistance. The contacts are available in loose piece only. Only crimp type and threaded contacts are removable.
The high power connectors are available with or without pre-installed guide pins; mid and low power connectors are designed with molded-in guide posts to ensure positive mating of connectors. The molded-in pin protectors prevent damage to the contacts. These features (including the guide pin holes and guide post cavities) have chamfered edges for ease of mating. The connectors are designed for float-mount and fixed-mount applications to allow blind mating with misalignment. All connectors are also designed with standoffs to allow easy printed circuit (pc) board cleaning after soldering.
