Delphi's Waferized Connection System is a bussed system comprised of small wafer elements which are an integral part of Delphi's miniaturization and optimization activities, enabled by enhanced automation capabilities. The goals of these activities are reduced mass and size, and cost efficient Electrical/Electronic Architecture (E/EA) design. Waferized joint connectors are built from a number of smaller connectors, known as wafers. Delphi's waferized joint connection system design uses smaller wafers (three or four terminal cavities) compared to traditional methods (10 or more cavities). All wafers are independent of each other, with Integrated Secondary Locks (ISL) and features for assembly to the mating connector or housing. This waferization allows harness manufacturers to build more efficiently by eliminating splices and minimizing terminal plugs on the assembly conveyor.
