TE Connectivity Introduces Poke-In Slim Wire Connectors

TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, has launched a series of Poke-In Slim Wire connectors that enable users to make wire-to-board and board-to-board connections quickly and easily.

The releasable poke-in contact function, along with a design that accommodates various wire sizes, allows for fast installation and rework; no special tools are required. Bare contact offers size and cost savings over housed poke-in connectors, with the new connectors’ small footprints favoring compact PCB designs. Applications are primarily in LED lighting, building automation, telecommunications and security systems.

TE’s new poke-in connectors accept wire gauges 18-22 AWG. The connectors are rated 10 Amps for 18 AWG wire and 6 Amps for 20-22 AWG. The slim male pin contact is designed for board-to-board connections with a 4 Amp rating when used with the releasable slim contact. Maximum voltage rating is 300 VAC. Operating temperature range is minus 40 to 105 degrees Celsius.
