KYOCERA AVX has released the new 9296-11X Series STRIPT vertical poke-home through-board contacts for 12–18AWG wire.
The new 9296-11X Series vertical through-board contacts further expand the company’s portfolio of user-friendly poke-home contacts and connectors. This addition brings the portfolio total to 10 series, two of which — this series and 9296-000 Series contacts — can now support larger wire gauges and higher current ratings.
KYOCERA AVX’s STRIPT poke-home contacts are industry-leading, UL-approved, single-contact solutions that deliver equivalent or improved performance compared to complete connector solutions but are more economical due to the lack of an insulator, which saves on material costs. Their impressive, cost-effective performance even extends to harsh industrial environments, where they’ve been field-proven for more than 10 years.
The insulator-less STRIPT poke-home contact design features high-force dual-beam box contacts that reliably capture both solid and stranded wires, provide maximum wire retention strength, and exhibit robust mechanical stability. It also offers board space and/or height savings and supports flexible board placement, all of which can be advantageous for today’s high-density electronic designs.
The new 9296-11X Series STRIPT vertical poke-home contacts have a surface-mount through-board construction equipped with pure-tin-plated phosphor bronze box contacts. This construction allows users to quickly, easily, and reliably terminate 12–18AWG solid or stranded wires by simply pushing the wire into the contact.
The 9296-11X Series is rated for up to 20A, 300VACrms or the DC equivalent, and operating temperatures extending from -40°C to +130°C and is compliant with UL 1977 safety standards and the RoHS directive to support broad application suitability. Ideal applications for the series include machine controls, such as motors, drives, solenoids, sensors, battery packs, fans, and pumps; commercial building controls, security and fire alarms, and sensors; LED fixtures, signage, and streetlights; and home appliances, such as vacuums and steam cleaners, washing machines, and dryers.
9296-11X Series vertical poke-home contacts are packaged on tape and reel for automated SMT placement and are currently available with an eight-week lead time.
