TE Connectivity Low-Temperature Rise Cluster Blocks

TE Connectivity's (TE) Low-Temperature Rise Cluster Blocks provide an automated assembly solution for air-conditioner compressors. These TE cluster blocks meet compressor operating temperature requirements with a quick and reliable connection. The Low-Temperature Rise Cluster Block's design provides up to 28% lower temperature rise than standard offerings. The solderless connection provides a cleaner assembly than comparable soldered solutions. A hermetic pin alignment feature supports easier automated assembly.


  • Designed for exterior air-conditioner compress applications
  • Hermetic pin alignment supports easier assembly and fully automated processing
  • Housing stopper design reduces connector rotation risk by fixing the mating part position after insertion
  • Gap design between the terminal and housing increases reliability and provides better low-level contact resistance (LLCR)
  • Cleaner assembly with solderless mating
