TE Connectivity GRACE INERTIA Connectors

TE Connectivity has introduced an expanded line of GRACE INERTIA connectors offering terminal position assurance (TPA) capability for high current GRACE INERTIA connectors with 9.0 and 12.4 mm centerlines. The inertia locking and ergonomic connector design helps prevent half-mating caused by human error during assembly and helps improve line workers’ comfort and productivity. The use of the snap-in TPA devices helps to ensure that the receptacle terminals are fully seated in the plug housings. The TPA devices also provide a further measure against contact back-out. The high current GRACE INERTIA connector solution is rated up to 20A, 600 VAC, and is ideal for applications across many industries. This includes intelligent buildings, industrial equipment, appliances, and other applications where power must be connected to a control board to support heaters, motors, compressors and other high power loads.

 

Features

  • Assures terminals are fully seated in the housing and also provides an added measure against terminal back-out through use of optional terminal position assurance (TPA) device 
  • Supports high current  requirements for wire-to-board connections with 20 amp, 600 volt rating when used with 12 AWG wire
  • Helps prevent half-mating caused by human error during assembly thanks to inertia locking design
  • Meets UL recognition to ease end product approvals
  • Aids in increasing line workers’ comfort and productivity, particularly when compared to individual terminal connections, with ergonomically-friendly housings
  • Provides excellent electrical insulation while meeting glow wire test (750°C, no flame) and UL 94 V-0 flammability

 

Applications

  • Room air conditioners
  • Washers & Dryers
  • Industrial Machinery
  • HVAC Systems
  • Vending Machines
  • Control Systems
