TE Connectivity Introduces New Models of Standard Timer Connectors

PressReleasePing - December 04, 2017 -

TE Connectivity (TE) introduces new models of standard timer connectors for improved wire-to-board power connections. TE’s new model can help enhance the accuracy and security of PC board power connections. 
The RAST 5 compliant housings have terminal position assurance (TPA) features molded into the hinged cover to help ensure terminals are fully seated – and stay that way. A proven, robust, crimp-type terminal rated at 16A is used in the housings. Use of these multi-position connectors instead of discrete terminals can help prevent improper connections on the assembly line.

External latches secure housings to the headers, further enhancing connection security. New vertical tab headers with 3, 5 or 7 positions are selectively loaded with 2, 3 or 4 contacts. Housings and headers meet the Glow Wire test (750°C, no flame) and UL 94 V-0 flammability.
