February 22, 2016 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Feb. 22, 2016 – TE Connectivity (TE) has launched a range of rectangular heavy duty connectors (HDC), suitable for a range of applications in harsh environments within machinery, robotics, railway, wind energy and conventional energy generation and distribution.
The HDC product range utilizes a modular design, which it says enables customers to realize a structured approach to install equipment “conveniently and efficiently.” The products consist of three key elements: inserts, contacts and hoods and housings. The inserts and contacts are modular and assembled together to provide crimp-, screw- and spring-clamp termination technology. The hoods and housings are mainly made of die-casted aluminium or thermoplastic, “robustly structured to provide mechanical and environmental protection for the connector,” it says.
