Multiconnector terminal series

25 July 2007 Interconnection

PTR Messtechnik’s multiconnector programme uses two different principles, as can be seen from the pictures of its cross-section.

The original principle is represented by the AK 130 Series. This system is based on 2-pole and 3-pole connectors, which can be assembled as required into multipolar combinations without division loss. Two dove-tails with snap-in locking meet all the special demands made of connectors. As with terminal blocks featuring the screw-type principle, the AK 130 BL Series with solid block construction is also available for the AK 130 Series, which is specially suited to longer-pole applications.

The 950, 1100, 1110 and 1200 Series provide a mutually-compatible connector system. All of these series are available exclusively in solid block form. Both metric and imperial pin pitches are available in combinations of up to 24-poles, depending on type. The required headers are available with open or closed ends, and a large number of connections is possible. To avoid faulty connections the multiconnector systems can be fully-coded without the loss of individual poles.

The AK(Z) 1550 Series has been designed by PTR specially to meet miniaturisation requirements for multiconnectors: pin pitch is 3,5 mm and 3,81 mm, the height has been reduced, and precision block construction is possible from two to 20 (16) poles. Unbreakable insulating housing made of high-quality polyamide provides optimal insulating performance, with a UL 94 flammability classification of V-0. They can be ink-jet marked with lettering or symbols as required.
