Single-wire cable with JST VAR-2 connector


We supply this stranded cable with a completely assembled socket housing from JST. 

The VAR-2 single-wire connector has a connection pitch of 7.92 mm. It is a high-current connector that can withstand particularly high current loads and is used with primary power supply circuits and various other circuits that require large currents. The VAR-2 not only has a large current carrying capacity but also a reliable locking mechanism for maximum safety, and all this with a height of 17.5 mm. The second side of the cable is unfinished. This cable is particularly suitable for samples and small series.

Technical specifications:

  • side 1: JST VAR-2
  • side 2: unassembled, smooth cut off
  • stranded wire: AWG20, red and black
  • L = 500 mm
  • dimensions of the connector: length = 12.92 mm, depth = 10.6 mm, height = 14.3 mm
  • temperature range: -25 °C to 85 °C
  • RoHS compliant

Electrical characteristics of the VAR-2:

  • current rating: 7A AC, DC (AWG #18)
  • voltage rating: 250 V AC, DC
  • contact resistance: initial value max.10 mΩ (after environmental testing max. 20 mΩ).
  • insulation resistance: min. 1,000 MΩ
  • withstanding voltage: 1,200 V AC/minute
  • applicable wire: AWG #20 to #18


  • Robust box contact – a reliable connector with a wide range of applications, from low-voltage, low-current signal circuits to large-capacity power supply circuits.
  • Secure contacting and mounting – the housing has a locking mechanism that prevents the connector from coming loose due to vibration. The mechanism also prevents incorrect insertion (misalignment or wrong insertion).
  • Compact connector with large capacity – although this connector has a large current carrying capacity (7 A), it is compact with a height of 17.5 mm.
  • Immediately available from stock.
  • Can be assembled individually.
  • Other lengths are available at short notice.
