KYOCERA AVX 9176-500 Gas-Tight Discrete Wire IDC Connectors

KYOCERA AVX 9176-500 Gas-Tight Discrete Wire Insulation Displacement Connectors (IDCs) accept 24AWG to 18AWG wires with an insulation diameter ranging from 1.1mm to 2.1mm. These dual beam contacts support a 10A current rating with a large SMT solder base to provide maximum stability on the PCB. The 9176-500 Series also comes with optional locking strain relief caps that act as the termination tool for severe vibration applications. KYOCERA AVX 9176-500 Gas-Tight Discrete Wire IDCs are ideal for use in harsh automotive and industrial market applications.
