Delphi Micro64 Connectors provide compact electrical connections for low-energy, high-density applications. Micro64 connectors have superior sealing performance, high current capacity, and a robust mating pin design. The product family includes a labor-saving, non-orienting, tangless female terminal. The tangless female terminal is designed to mate with either round or square pins, allowing versatility in application and overall lower installed assembly and inventory costs. USCAR compliant, the Delphi Micro64 Connectors are well-suited for automotive & commercial vehicles, engine management systems, powertrain control systems, ABS braking systems, and airbag systems.
Delphi Micro-Pack is offered as a family of connectors designed
to meet the needs of low energy (<5 amps), high density applications.
Micro-Pack Connectors can be packaged as headers or in-lines, and are
available in unsealed or sealed versions. Filtered or shielded
connectors protect against electromagnetic interference (EMI). A 1 mm
male pin is used in both the 100 Series (unsealed) and 100W Series
(sealed) systems. The 100 Series female terminal utilizes a box design
with four contact points, while the 100W Series female employs a sleeve
Delphi's Ducon™ Connection Systems are based on industry-leading
technologies that offer superior mechanical and electrical performances
for automotive and commercial vehicle applications. Ducon's robust
two-piece terminal design features multiple contact-points at two
