New Yorker Electronics now offers the addition of a new series of NEMA 5-20 Snap-In Power Entry Connector Receptacles for application in medical and industrial instrumentation. Offered in two sizes, the ganged female sockets are employed in power strips, PDUs, portable power devices and virtually anywhere extra power is required.

These PDI snap-in connectors are intended for compact applications with just a 26.5mm width and snap into 1mm through 2mm panel thicknesses. A strong cord retention/withdrawal force and a heavy-duty nylon body make it excellent for rugged applications. It can be connected with 6.3mm disconnects, or the company will work with Power Dynamics to have the wire assembly attached.

The PD-520R2-3121 Three-Gang NEMA is 79.6mm x 26.5mm, and the PD-520R2-4121 Four-Gang NEMA is 107.76mm x 26.5mm. They are both rated at 20A, 125VAC with an operating temperature range of 0C to 65C. The housing is composed of black UL-94V-0 rated nylon-6 with tin-plated terminals. They have a panel thickness range of 1mm to 2mm, and they accept NEMA 5-15P and 5-20P plugs.

The connectors need a withdrawal force of 1.3Kg to 6.7Kg. Initial contact resistance is 10mOhms (max.), and its insulation resistance is 100MOhms (min.) @ 500VDC with a dielectric withstanding voltage of 2000VAC for one minute.
