NEW COMPACT, WATER-PROOF, WIRE-TO-WIRE AND
WIRE-TO-BOARD CONNECTOR FROM JST IS IDEAL FOR DEPENDABLE UNDERWATER APPLICATIONS.

WPJ Connector Training Module

The new WPJ Series Wire-to-Wire and Wire-to-Board Crimp Style Connector recently introduced by JST Corporation, Waukegan, Illinois, was designed for both extreme moisture and non-submersion applications. Major uses include automotive, appliance, underwater cameras or non-water resistance applications. Three different control key patterns prevent miss-mating while their unique terminal structure has been designed to withstand mating mistakes while maintaining the contact reliability. An inner lock housing feature prevents accidental disconnection to ensure connector mating integrity even under adverse conditions.

WPJ Series connectors have a 5.0 mm (.197”) pitch and are available in 2 & 3 circuits. Wire sizes AWG #22 to #18 with either standard or thin insulation types are accommodated. Current rating is 7.0 A AC/DC (AWG#18) at 300 V AC/DC. Temperature range is -25°C to +85°C (including temperature rise in applying electrical current). Waterproof grade is IP:X7. Withstanding voltage is 1,500 V AC/minute. Contacts are copper alloy, tin-plated. Housings and top-entry, fully shrouded headers are UL94V-0 rated PBT (glass filled) material. WPJ Series is lead free and complies with both European and China RoHS directives.
