The 94V-0-rated nylon housing is available in black or natural colors. Contacts are phosphor bronze with a choice of tin or gold plating. The connectors are rated up to 5 A and 250 V.The new low-profile connector joins the proven Micro MATE-N-LOK line of soft-shell connectors widely used in appliance, instrumentation, industrial machinery, home equipment, and security system industries. The low-profile version was created to meet the specific demands of the lighting industry.ABOUT TYCO ELECTRONICSTyco Electronics Ltd. is a leading global provider of engineered electronic components, network solutions, undersea telecommunication systems and wireless systems, with 2007 sales of US$13.0 billion to customers in more than 150 countries.
