The FCI Clincher™ connector includes features that optimize reliability at both the termination and disconnect interfaces. “Clinch” cable termination produces gas-tight, contamination-free connections to each conductor. The receptacle connectors utilize FCI’s proven and highly-reliable Mini PV™ contact design. Complementary shrouded PCB headers provide options for latching and proper connector alignment. Contacts are pre-loaded to connector housings enabling mass termination to unprepared cable. The FCI Clincher™ connector mass termination design accelerates cable assembly processes and reduces costs.
The original FCI Clincher™ connectors continue to be available in two through 32 positions in both pin and receptacle versions (product series 66226 for pin assemblies or series 65801 for receptacle assemblies). Choose from standard tin or optional gold plating. The Clincher™ is pre-assembled for mass termination which allows lowest applied cost. The latching Clincher™ uses the same customer-preferred and patented Clincher™ contact as our existing products and is a great fit for applications where shock and vibration are concerns.
