Samtec recently released a 2,00 mm pitch discrete wire IDC system designed for a high reliability connection and ease of discrete wire termination in field applications.
Available as IDC components only, this system eliminates the expense and need for special tooling, as well as any additional cost to purchase and inventory separate parts including bodies, contacts, etc.
Check out the video demonstration of the wire termination with standard flat jaw pliers.
The cable component is available in 2, 3, 4 or 5 positions and accepts 24 AWG discrete wire cables, which are held in place by the contacts and then terminated with standard flat jaw pliers.
The board level connector is a single row configuration with through-hole termination for increased stability on the board. In addition, a single end latching system is standard for secure locking. The shrouded and polarized system is RoHS compliant and lead-free solderable.
This system is ideal for industrial applications including installation, testing and maintenance in the field due to the fact that no special tooling is required for assembly. Additional applications include I/O, controls, factory automation, instrumentation, and measurement equipment.
