Amphenol Alden PL-900SM-N Auto-Coupling Pulse-Lok® Connectors

Amphenol Alden PL-900SM-N Pulse-Lok® Connectors are available in several power circuit configurations for industrial and medical electronics applications. These connectors feature Pulse-Lok auto-latch and quick-release mechanisms to confirm continuity. The PL-900SM-N connectors can withstand a minimum of 5000 mating cycles and offer up to 14 contact positions. These connectors feature nylon connector housings and thermoplastic rubber flex reliefs. The Amphenol Alden PL-900SM-N Pulse-Lok Connectors are water-proof and operate within a temperature range of -20°C to +105°C.
