Datamate Trio-Tek, open barrel crimp contact from Harwin reduces costs in automated applications
Suits both medium-and high-volume processes
Performing to the same high-reliability standards as conventional
open barrel crimp contact, from high-reliability connector maker
, automates the crimp process to significantly save on assembly time and reduce process costs. The new
design which features a latching feature simplifies the insertion of contacts into the housing.
Product Manager Graham Cunningham commented: “An innovative, patent-pending design in the field of high reliability connectors, the
auto-crimp contact features a triangular form that is the key to providing a simplified crimping process while at the same time enabling the customer to fully automate crimping in medium- and high-volume applications. Further, inexpensive hand crimping tools are also available for lower volume and product development and prototyping applications.”
The high reliability contact of the
is tested in accordance with BS 9525-F0033. A crimp inspection window in the housing aids quality control, while the insulation crimp barrel provides improved strain relief.
Two Hardware Options for Mating:
- When fast mating is essential, the
require only a simple 'quarter turn' with no special tooling to ensure complete security of the retention device. The
utilize specially designed hardware tensioned by a coil spring to reduce the time required to
halves. This spring tensioning also helps resist vibration in rugged environment applications such as the aerospace industry. The
is ideal for users that are seeking a faster means of
while ensuring complete security of the retention device.
- Rugged and reliable, the
is a simple, yet highly reliable, slot style turned
. Still the favorite of many engineers.
