Enabling a compact design, the right-angle DF60FS Series crimp socket has a pitch of only 10.16 mm and does not require extra room for cable routing.

Part of the EnerBee power connector family, the DF60FS wire-to-board connector supports applications requiring current ratings up to 65A. Designed for power-dense environments such as data centres, industrial machinery, and renewable energy systems, the DF60FS maintains reliable power connections, even in harsh environments prone to shock and vibration.

Providing secure mating with a clear tactile click, the DF60 Series utilises a highly reliable 5-point contact with independent contact springs to ensure reliable and secure connectivity in extreme environments. The DF60FS Series design also offers finger-safe electric shock prevention.

The DF60FS Series connectors accept AWG #8 to #12 cables, with two keying variations available.

The DF60FS Series is available in 2 and 3-position versions.

The connector is commonly used in industrial, medical, power conditioning, robotic, and telecom applications.

The DF60FS Series wire-to-board power connector has a rated voltage of 1000V AC/DC and an operating temperature of -55C to +105C.
