FCI Griplet Low-Profile IDC Terminal
The FCI Griplet low-profile IDC terminal is a compact, miniature connector for wire-to-board terminations.
FCI released the Griplet miniature IDC connector for wire-to-board terminations. The connector offers a robust solution for miniature IDC wire-to-board connections. The low profile and compact design make Griplet an ideal connector for applications 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 for harsh and industrial market applications where direct connection between individual wires and the PCB are required.
“The Griplet accommodates multiple wire sizes, which reduces the total applied cost versus solder or crimp processes,” said Fabrizio Stango, commercial portfolio director at FCI. “Also, custom-made housings are available for automatic pick-and-place processes.”
Griplet connectors support various wire-to-board applications such as industrial, instrumentation, automation controls, sensors, LED lighting, white goods, and automotive.
