AVX develops new poke-home connectors for industrial applications

Tuesday August 06, 2019
August 6, 2019 – AVX Corporation, a manufacturer and supplier of advanced electronic components, has expanded upon its wire-to-wire (WTW) connector portfolio with the release of the new 9286-300 Series poke-home connectors for 12–18AWG wire.

Designed to simplify the connection process in a broad range of industrial market applications that require high-current or large-gauge wires, the 9286-300 Series WTW connectors enable simple strip-and-poke-home wire insertion and twist-and-pull wire extraction, and employ a one-piece phosphor bronze contact with high-force contact beams that provide both mechanical stability and reliable wire retention and an integral wire-stop that prevents over insertion.

The series also accepts both solid and stranded wires, with flame-retardant UL94 V-0 glass-filled thermoplastic housings that protect connections from potting and coating materials and are colour-coded to match wires to further ease and hasten assembly. Ideal applications for the series include industrial machine controls, such as motors, drives, solenoids, pumps, coils, and transformers; commercial building controls, security and fire alarm systems, and premise wiring; smart grid meters, breakers, and panels; and SSL fixtures and wiring.

More than 19 strands per wire is not recommended. They are available in eight wire-matched insulator colours (white, black, brown, blue, yellow, red, green and orange), are rated for 600VAC, 10–15A depending on AWG, five-cycle durability, and operating temperatures extending from -40°C to +125°C, and are packaged in bulk in quantities of 500 pieces per bag.
