Molex Disk Drive Power Connector

The 8981 series of power connectors are used mainly in the hard and floppy disk drive industries. It is used to carry voltages from the power supply unit to the disk drive board. Molex came up with a variation of power connectors falling under our 8981 series to accommodate the need of our valuable customers. We have the vertical, right-angled through-hole and surface mounted versions. Molex offers the 8981 in varying wall thickness, profile heights and slot orientations. The pins come in either the standard (2.13mm) .084" or (2.096mm) .0825" diameter. The surface mounted connectors offer low profiles and space saving features. The housing is made from high temperature material which can withstand vapor phase and IR soldering process.
