The new IDC-PCB terminal with a total height of only 2.9mm eliminates manual preparation of wires prior to termination. The IDC dual contact provides a reliable gas tight connection to the conductor of the wire. This means that the costly and unreliable hand soldering can be replaced and no special tool is required for termination.
The total dimensions are (2.4mm x 2.2mm x 2.9mm) and the required PCB space is significant smaller compared to other solutions. A termination cap provides strain relief and keeps the wire in place. In addition variants with wire stop or for daisy chain applications are available. Despite the small dimensions a high current rating of max. 5.5A at 20°C is specified. The new IDC-PCB terminals are available for 24AWG wire (solid wire) with A wire diameter of 0.5mm and cable diameter of 0.75mm.
