Industrial, Metering and Medical type electronics continue to look for new wire-to-board termination solutions to reduce size or eliminate hand soldering of wires. AVX has taken the existing simple and reliable IDC individual contact and cap solution and reduced the IDC slot down to accept 26-28AWG wires. This expands the complete range of these single contacts from 18AWG all the way down to 28AWG, providing our customers new packaging options.
The single IDC contact offers the lowest cost solution to reliably terminate discrete wires to a PCB with a consistent process while allowing for wires to be easily replaced. The optional accessory cap doubles as an assembly aid as well as provides a positive strain relief in harsh or vibration applications.
