Audible click, protection against backing out and disengagement together with many versions and attractive price – these are the Power Tripple Lock connectors.
Universal connectors for interconnection of leads (wire-to-wire) as well as leads to a PCB (wire-to-board) are necessary every day and practically everywhere. In industrial applications they usually need various connectors. “Various” usually means almost uncountable amount of types, that´s why it´s usually a big advantage if it´s possible the same connector for several applications. This “versatility” is considerably met by a new series of connectors Power Tripple Lock. Commercial products, industry, transportation – all these segments are addressed by Power Tripple Lock from company TE Connectivity.
What does the „Tripple Lock“ mean?
As already the name says, it is a triple locking – protection against disconnection. The basic and the most important is a sophisticated design with exactly mating parts and a reliable lock. Audible click is a discreet but very useful feature contributing to a correct connector assembly.
Optional protections are „CPA“ and „TPA“
– CPA (connector position assurance) is an optional plastic part – additional lock against mistaken disengagement.
– TPA (terminal position assurence) is an optional plastic part used from the rear connector side (from leads) ensuring a 100% exact leads, helps precise mating and improves overall reliability and immunity to vibrations and stresses.
Connectors are available with pins in a single row (2,3,4,5), two rows (2×3,2×4,2×5,2×6) and in a matrix (3×3,3×4,3×5) with 6mm pin spacing. Basic parameters are 20A/600VAC or DC. Also interesting is the fact, that connectors are available in three material versions with a different thermal resistance (all are UL 94V-0):
-PBT standard (-55…105°C)
– high temperature (-55…150°C)
– „Glow wire“ (750°C no flame) according to IEC 60335-1
Prevention against improper connectors assembly is a different colour coding of particular material versions. Another factor preventing improper connection are 4 possibilities of keying (necessary if the same connectors are in one device). Power Tripple Lock is a big family of connectors containing connectors “wire-to-wire“ (free hanging leads),“wire-to-board“ as well as panel mount versions.
