AVX has released the new STRIPT 9177-500 series single IDC contacts for #12 – #18 AWG wire-to-board terminations in harsh industrial, transportation, outdoor and alternative energy applications. These latest additions to the STRIPT family of UL-approved, insulator-less single contacts provide a cost-effective solution for quickly, easily and reliably terminating individual high-current or high-voltage solid or stranded wires onto a PCB using a proven, gas-tight contact system.
Designed to support large wire gauges from both a robustness and current rating perspective, the new contacts enable wire-to-board connections up to 15 A and 600 V, and are built to withstand extreme temperatures, shock and vibration. The highly reliable cold-welded connections they enable are also compatible with potting and overmoulding encapsulation processes, allowing users to further protect the electronics from extreme environmental conditions including water ingress.
Ideal for use in solar and other alternative energy systems, outdoor and transportation lighting, commercial building wiring and electrical systems, and industrial motor controls, drives and pumps, each proven phosphor bronze IDC contact features a redundant contact system for enhanced wire retention and high current-carrying capabilities.
