AMP Standard MAG-MATE Insulation Displacement Crimp (IDC) terminals for magnet wire terminations.
MAG-MATE terminals are available in poke-in, poke-in tab, splice, crimp wire barrel, solder post, quick connect tab, pin and receptacle styles.
Standard MAG-MATE terminates magnet wire ranging from 34-12 AWG [0.16 -2.05 mm].
Each IDC slot terminates up to four consecutive magnet wire ranges.
Two magnet wires with the same diameter can be terminated in one terminal down to 23 AWG [0.57 mm].
According to specifications MAG-MATE cavities are either integrated into coil bodies or especially designed cavity housings. The magnet wires are precisely positioned in the “U”shaped designed termination slots.
The MAG-MATE Inserter cuts the terminals from the strip and places the terminals over the magnet wire into the plastic cavities.
During this operation the small stripping devices penetrate the film insulation from the magnet wire.
Residual spring energy in the terminal causes the side walls of each IDC slot to function as opposing cantilever beams.
This constant pressure results in an intimate metal to-metal interface, providing a reliable, long-term connection.
The wiping action between the wire and terminals removes oxides or other contaminants present on both the conductor and the terminal slot side walls, producing a clean, stable, gas-tight electrical termination.
The AMP MAG-MATE Inserter may be used as a semi-automatic bench machine or integrated in production lines for fully automatic applications.
