Value-line models added to cable assembly family
The Micro-MaTch family of cable assemblies from TE Connectivity (TE) has been expanded with the addition of value-line models. They provide a cost effective solution for general purpose applications that do not require resistance to the highest temperature ranges, to high levels of vibration, or to extended durability cycles. They are suitable for use in environments where temperatures do not stray outside -30°C to 80°C.
TE’s Micro-MaTch value-line cable assemblies are available with between four and 20 positions and in standard lengths of 7.5cm, 15cm and 20cm (2.95, 5.91, and 7.87 inches). Because they are provided as off-the-shelf products, delivery times are short.
The cable assemblies incorporate a keyed interface to prevent mismatching and ensure a long operating life. A wide range of receptacles in various configurations (surface-mount technology - SMT, right angle) provides added versatility, while the easy-connect system saves on assembly times. The new value-line assemblies feature connectors with a PBT housing and nickel-tin plated contacts. The cable has tinned copper conductors insulated with PVC.
Micro-MaTch value-line cable assemblies are intended for use in such areas as intelligent buildings, lighting, HVAC, various industrial fields and consumer electronics. Typical applications include security equipment, robotics, motors, control units, CCTV, TV set-top boxes, AV equipment, electronic voting machines and pay terminals.
