MAG-MATE Terminals for More Al and Cu Wire Sizes
TE Connectivity introduces two new MAG-MATE terminals for magnet wire sizes not accommodated by existing terminals in the product line. As with other MAG-MATE terminals, they utilize insulation displacement connection (IDC) technology to provide a clean, stable, metal-to-metal interface without requiring pre-stripping of the magnet wire.
The new terminals can terminate aluminum magnet wire from 25-24 AWG (0.45-0.5 mm dia) or copper magnet wire from 27-24 AWG (0.38-0.5mm dia). Both are 300 box MAG-MATE terminals for standard cavity size 2.
One is a poke-in terminal that accepts a 20-18AWG (0.5-0.8mm2) solid or fused stranded lead wire or poke-in tab. The other is a combination terminal that accepts the same poke-in lead wire (but not a poke-in tab), and it also has a 0.187 (4.75mm) FASTON tab for lead wire connection.
Applications include motor windings and connections, coil connections, transformer windings and connections, bobbin connections, lighting ballasts, power supplies and more across various industries.
