EdgeMate™ Wire-to-Edge-Card
Power Connectors, 3.96mm Pitch,
with Positive Lock
Features and Benefits
Mates directly to the PCB edge card without a mating
header
Reduced inventory, bill-of-material and
manufacturing costs without having to invest in
headers
Glow-wire compatible versions (meeting IEC 60355-1
safety standards)
Ensures safety and protection of end-users in the
event of glow-wire overload
Positive-lock design (applicable to non glow-wire-
compatible versions only)
Offers strong PCB-to-connector retention
Polarized housing Ensures correct orientation with the PCB
Bifurcated (dual contact-point) terminals support up to
7.0A current
Allows secondary current paths for long-term
electrical performance and reliability
Polarized crimp terminal Ensures correct terminal orientation and insertion
Connectors without locking features (option) Give pricing flexibility to suit customer needs
Available in glow-wire-compatible versions, EdgeMate™
power connectors eliminate the need for mating
headers, offering significant cost savings in appliance,
industrial and lighting applications

Product Features
Additional Product Features
A PCB with hole is used with
locking connector version
Thick-wall polarization feature of
a non-locking housing
Polarization ribs on the connector housing
ensure correct mating to PCB circuitry
Inner-rib polarization feature
of a non-locking housing
A PCB without hole is used with a
non-locking version connector
Polarization rib on connector
housing provide fool-proof mating
to PCB whether in locking or
non-locking versions
The bifurcated crimp terminal offers 2
points of contact (or secondary paths)
for long-term electrical reliability
Reverse side of crimped terminal
showing locking tang feature which
prevents accidental terminal back-out
once inserted into the housing cavity
