TE Connectivity Power Triple Lock Connector System

Power Triple Lock Connector System Overview

TE Connectivity Power Triple Lock (PTL) Connector System offers three locking methods and an enhanced design to meet the market demand for improved connector stability and reliability in power and signal applications. An audible 'lock' latch provides confirmation when cap and plug are mated while the ribs surrounding the latch prevent wires from becoming snagged underneath the latch. Optional Connector Position Assurance (CPA) ensures that once engaged the PTL Connector System is not accidentally disengaged. The optional Terminal Position Assurance (TPA) feature ensures that contacts are fully seated in the housing and provides an added measure against contact backout. Additional features include high temperature housings up to 150°C (302°F) and an upgraded lanceless contact design.

The PTL Connector System is available with three levels of housing materials including V0 materials in standard 105°C, glow wire materials that comply with IEC60335 and high temperature materials up to 150°C. The standard 105°C offering is well-suited for appliances and white goods while the high temperature version is ideal for more industrial and harsh environment applications including automotive. The glow-wire version is suitable for manufacturing in regions that are required to comply with IEC60335 regulations. Keying/color coding prevents mis-mating on the assembly line.

Applications
TE Connectivity Power Triple Lock Connector System Applications

Standard Temperature

The standard material is polybutylene terephthalate (PBT), a thermoplastic engineering polymer (instead of nylon) that provides improved service for a broad range of appliances. The standard material is rated for 105°C and comes in either natural, purple, blue, or yellow. In some instances, the basic connector design for appliances has not changed in 25 years or more. The Power Triple Lock System has been designed to be a highly robust connector system that is suited for new design opportunities. TE Connectivity has developed the Power Triple Lock Connector system to be a reliable connector system that will withstand the test of time.

High Temperature

The high-temperature material is rated at 150°C instead of 105°C. High-temperature applications, such as cooking appliances, are now addressed with the higher rated material. The high temperature material is light grey and comes in different keying options to prevent mis-mating on the assembly line. The Power Triple Lock Connector System is able to meet the needs of different applications ranging from the commercial, industrial, and trasnportation industries thanks to its broader temperature range.

Glow Wire

TE Connectivity's Glow Wire (GWT, V0, NF 750°C) option conforms to the flammability requirements of IEC 60335-1 for unattended appliances with connections carrying current of greater than 0.2 Amperes. Safety is paramount in the home appliance industry. Due to the possibility of human misapplication over-current, or short circuit failures within an appliance wiring system, fire protection requirements were created to evaluate and rate the flammability of material used within an appliance. Glow wire testing is one such requirement used within the appliance industry today. TE Connectivity's selection of Power Triple Lock products that meet the flammability requirements of IEC 60335-1 come in dark grey, brown, green, or orange.
