The retainer provides added protection against non-insertion or disconnection.
This inter-housing lock secures the plug to the receptacle and prevents accidental disconnection. The lock is protected and is not affected by external forces that might result from the routing of wires.
The secondary retainers enhance safety in case of partial insertion or accidental release of the contact. Even if a contact is inserted incompletely, the retainer guides the contact to the proper position and securely locks it in place.
The resilient plastic housing lances secure the contacts in the housings. Since the lances are part of the housings rather than on the contacts, they are not affected by handling, and allow the contacts to be lightly inserted without undue force. This establishes a feeling of uniform insertion and a noticeable change in that feeling when insertion is completed.
- Mountable on a variety of panels
Due to our unique panel installation locking mechanisms, the housing can be easily installed on panels of various thickness without using tools.
- Contacts smoothly insert into the housings without colliding with internal obstacles
Housings have pin insertion guides that provide smooth and easy insertion without contact deflection or collision against internal housing walls.
