3M 3810x & 3820x Series IDC Link Connectors

3M's 3810X & 3820X Series leverages 3M's IDC technology and are designed to offer a safe and reliable electrical connection while enabling cable extensions as well as T-Tab termination. The 3M 3810X & 3820X Series features 2- and 4-position wire- and board-mount IDC Link Connectors and a hermaphroditic four-point contact mating structure that reduces the number of different components required for wiring. Designed to terminate easily in the field using a standard pair of pliers, the IDC Link Connectors do not require any special tooling or pretreatment of cables. The 3M 3810X & 3820X Series can accept wire diameters from 1.1mm to 2.54mm and accommodate discrete or flat ribbon cable with conductor sizes between 18 and 22 AWG. Latches and polarization ensure proper mating of the connectors.

Features
  • Hermaphroditic four-point contact mating structures reduces the number of different components required to interconnect and ensures a reliable interconnect
  • Easy, labor saving and reliable IDC termination
  • T-Tab termination enable mid-cable terminations without special preparation or handling of the cable or wires in order to interconnect fieldbus and power lines at any point
  • Easy field termination with no special wire preparation - no stripping, tinning or special tooling; can terminate with a common pair of pliers
  • Design accepts multiple wire diameters of 1.1mm to 2.54 mm, conductor sizes of 18 to 22 AWG
  • 5 Amp maximum current carrying capability per contact
  • Latching mechanism maintains a reliable interconnection in demanding field applications
