Ultra-Fast Fully Insulated FASTON Receptacles, Flag Receptacles and Tabs preclude the need for costly electrical safety interlocks or special protective shields to help prevent shock hazards. In addition, electrical short circuits from exposed leads are eliminated, even in equipment requiring close contact spacing.
The Ultra-Fast FASTON Receptacle, Flag Receptacle and Tab are pre-insulated assemblies featuring a housing molded from type 6/6 nylon material with a +130°C UL temperature rating.
The Ultra-Fast FASTON Receptacle housing completely encloses a tinplated copper alloy Premier FASTON receptacle which has been stress-relieved for increased durability and resistance to abuse. The FASTON receptacle is recessed sufficiently within the housing to allow its use in 600-volt applications. The receptacle portion of the terminal is designed for positive mating with a variety of tabs, including those with shoulders. The housing has a slotted membrane which is displaced by two tab shoulders allowing proper engagement of tab and receptacle while maintaining the fully insulated characteristic.
Positive entry and lead-in of the tab is provided by the inner housing wall and the lead-in on the terminal rolls. This permits positive engagement, even in blind mating locations.
The Ultra-Fast FASTON Tab housing completely encloses a tin-plated copper alloy FASTON tab. The FASTON tab is recessed sufficiently within the housing to allow its use in 600-volt applications. The housing is designed to completely encapsulate the tab and receptacle when the two are mated.
Quality control is easily maintained. The nylon housing is translucent, allowing visual inspection of the termination. In addition, a crimp code on the platform hand tool is indented into the housing during the crimping operation which identifies that the proper crimp dies were used.
Depending on production requirements, TE Connectivity provides a complete selection of terminating equipment from hand tools to automatic lead makers.
