AVX Corporation has rebranded its revolutionary single contact technology. Introduced to the market in early 2010 as naked connector technology, AVX’s broad range of robust, insulator-less single contacts will now be sold as STRIPT connectors.
STRIPT connectors are UL-certified single contacts that deliver the same performance as complete connector solutions without the additional space required by and assembly costs associated with a plastic insulator, effectively bridging the gap between hand soldering and one- and two-piece connector solutions. Based on unique board-to-board (BTB) and wire-to-board (WTB) single-contact designs pioneered by AVX, and constructed with premium base contact materials, STRIPT connectors enable engineers to meet stringent cost, performance, and robustness specifications in a wide variety of harsh commercial, industrial, medical, transportation, and solid-state lighting applications.
AVX’s STRIPT connectors are the clear market leader, available in four different contact technologies. In addition to the broadest range of AWG, pin counts, heights, current ratings, and configurations (horizontal, vertical, top, inverse, stacking, and coplanar).
STRIPT connectors have received several industry awards — earning recognition in the 2014 and 2013 Electronic Design Top 101 Components list and 2013 Electronic Products Product of the Year Awards — and are ideal for use in applications including: commercial building controls, such as fire and security; smart grid meters, breakers, and panels; portable commercial and industrial handheld terminals, scanners, and meters; machine controls, such as motors, drives, sensors, solenoids, pumps, and fans; industrial electronic modules and controls; console, police, and emergency lighting; SSL bulbs, fixtures, streetlights, and signage; and medical devices, such as patient monitoring and drug dispensing equipment.
