AVX Wire-to-Board Insulation Displacement Connectors
AVX Wire-to-Board Insulation Displacement Connectors provide a simple and reliable connection more cost-effective than two-piece solutions or hand soldering.
Connectors are available with 1 to 3 positions and for solid or stranded wires from 12 to 28 AWG, useful for a wide range of applications. High-performance phosphor bronze contacts form a gas-tight connection with the wire and have current ratings from 1 to 15 amps, providing connectivity for power, ground, and signals.
The connector housing provides positive strain relief by gripping the insulation of the wire, and the connectors meet automotive requirements for temperature, shock, and vibration. Termination is simple, with manual and automated tools available, while some models have optional locking caps that provide strain relief and act as the termination tool.
AVX Wire-to-Board Insulation Displacement Connectors are UL tested and certified.
