TE Connectivity's (TE) new low insertion force (LIF) 250 FASTON receptacle terminal with 2D crimp is designed for a broad range of quick disconnect applications. This new LIF FASTON receptacle requires less than 6 lbs of insertion force while still providing excellent retention force when used with a 0.250 x 0.032 in. FASTON tab. The 2D crimp accommodates wire sizes from 22 to 12AWG using the same applicator while providing electrical and mechanical properties comparable to those of the traditional F crimp. This can reduce the number of part numbers to spec in, buy and inventory; reduce applicator cost and set-up; and improve applicator efficiency. This LIF 250 FASTON receptacle with 2D crimp technology can be used across all industries, where a standard F crimp 250 FASTON receptacle might have been considered.
