The APEX® 2.8mm family of connection systems was developed in 1993 for heavy-duty applications where heat and vibration are a major concern. In addition, APEX was developed to assist OEMs with terminal and connector standardization for in-line and device connections.
Unlike many of the competitive terminal systems which are one-piece designs, the APEX female terminal is a two-piece terminal design which is very robust and cost competitive. In addition to its robust design and proven performance, APEX is a very easy connection system to assemble and service in the field. APEX 2.8mm will cover a wide range of wire sizes from 22 to 10 AWG TXL wire.
