Connector variation

Secure locking device

  • The housing has a locking feature that prevents accidental disconnection due to restricted wire routing or high environmental vibration.

Interchangeability between Crimp and IDC Socket

  • Both Crimp and IDC sockets use the same headers and wire-to-wire mating halves.

Secondary Retainer – Terminal Position Assurance (TPA)

  • The Secondary Retainer or TPA feature ensures that the crimped contact has been inserted fully into the housing. It's a feature that aids the production/assembly process where it is not always easy to check that the crimped contact has been inserted correctly into the housing.

PCB Mounting Technology

  • Suitable PCB Headers are available for both Through Hole (THT) and Surface Mount (SMT) application processes.

Highly reliable contact design

  • The contact box design concept, offers a high degree of interface performance under conditions of vibration, distortion, low voltage or low current.

Application Equipment

  • Hand, Semi-Automatic and Fully Automatic assembly devices are available. See Tooling tab for further details.
