Current limitations for 0.1" crimp pins



What is the maximum current recommended for the Male Crimp Pins for 0.1" Housings ( Pololu item #: 1931) and Female Crimp Pins for 0.1" (Pololu item #: 1930)?




Those crimp pins are rated for a maximum current of 3A.



Note that connector ratings are to avoid overheating during long term use in ambient room temperature.
The rating goes down if it’s warmer, and it goes up if the power draw is intermittent with a low duty cycle.
