August 24, 2016 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Aug. 24, 2016 – TE Connectivity’s Deutsch Jiffy splices, part of the company’s portfolio of harsh environment electrical connectors, claim to be a unique, field-serviceable alternative to permanent splices.
According to the company, they protect connections from dirt, dust and water immersion for up to three feet, and can be used to “quickly” repair damaged electrical connections on equipment at the jobsite. Jiffy splices accept one Deutsch pin and socket and are available in two sizes. Part number JS-12-00 accepts size 12 Deutsch contacts (25 amps) and utilizes 10-14 AWG. For 14-20 AWG wire, part number JS-16-00 accepts size 16 Deutsch contacts (13 amps). If servicing a Jiffy Splice is required, the contacts can be removed with standard Deutsch removal tools.
