MiniClamp II Connector | 3M

The 3M Mini-Clamp II connectors have an integrated guiding and alignment feature built into the cover, which provides reliable positioning of the individual wires. Semi-transparent covers allow for visual inspection to check correct wire positioning prior to termination. Polarizing tabs help provide proper mating while latching features help provide a secure connection, even under severe conditions such as mechanical stress and vibration in industrial environments.

The new Mini-Clamp II Connectors by 3M are available in a 2mm pitch that use color coding (red, yellow, orange, green, blue and grey) to ensure proper wire usage, wire alignment and retention of the cover. The 3M Mini-Clamp II Connectors are available in 3- and 4-pin wiremount configurations, in two socket styles and a plug version. They are also available in board-mount socket configurations: a 3- and 4-pin single row socket connectors; and a 6-pin (2 x 3 pins), an 8-pin (2 x 4 pins), a 12-pin (4 x 3 pins) and a 16-pin (4 x 4 pins) multi-row socket connector. Dust caps are available for more harsh and dusty environments. The new connectors join the existing Link wiremount 381 series and boardmount socket series 382, both of which are available in 4-pin configuration and meet the industry-wide CC-Link standard.
