TE Connectivity adds push-in clamp termination to Buchanan PCB range
Buchanan PCB connectors from TE Connectivity now include a maintenance-free push-in clamp termination. The connectors have low insertion and release forces for ferruled wires and unferruled solid wires without the need for special tools. The tool-less design reduces installation times up to 80 per cent, says TE, compared with traditional screw clamp termination.
The new range of connectors consists of two-piece plug connectors with mating straight and right-angle shrouded headers. They have been designed for use in motion and control units in harsh and vibration-exposed factory and process automation industry to suit high density, signal, and power applications.
The 5.00mm metrical pitch design has various numbers of positions (between two and 16) for design flexibility. Customer-specific versions are available on request.
The Buchanan PCB connectors are intended for use in servo/inverter drives, various types of controls, power supply units and heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems.
Housings comply with UL regulations and VDE regulations (pending approval) and come in a polyamide 66 with a UL94 flammability rating of V-0. Connectors accept wires in sizes from AWG 26 to 12 (0.14-2.5mm2).
