FCI Introduces Griplet™ Low Profile and
Compact IDC Terminal
FCI’s new Griplet™ connector offers a robust solution for miniature IDC Wire-to-Board connections. The low profile and compact design makes Griplet™ an ideal connector where space is tight and ease of installation is important. Each connector has a height of 3.7mm and a footprint of 4.0mm x 6.1mm.
Specially designed for a stackable pitch up to 12 positions, the common housings are available to secure and protect terminated components. Griplet™ provides a highly reliable connection, and is suitable in harsh and industrial market applications where direct connection between individual wires and PCB are required.
“The Griplet™ accommodates multiple wire sizes which reduces the total applied cost versus solder or crimp process” comments Fabrizio Stango, Commercial Portfolio Director at FCI. “And custom made housings are available for automatic pick and place processes”.
Griplet™ connectors supports various wire-to-board applications such as industrial and instrumentation, automation controls, sensors, LED lighting, white goods and automotive.
