Housing lock designed to prevent tangling with wires and accidental breakage because of handling.
- Low insertion force contact
The low insertion force contacts reduce surface finish wear and reduce the effects of stress relaxation.
The resilient plastic housing lances secure the contacts in the housings. Since the lances are in the housings rather than on the contacts, they are not affected by handling, and allow the contacts to be lightly inserted without undue force. This establishes a feeling of uniform insertion and a noticeable change in that feeling when insertion is completed.
This inter-housing lock secures the plug to the receptacle and prevents accidental disconnection. The lock is protected and is not affected by external forces that might result from the routing of wires.
The secondary retainers enhance safety in case of partial insertion or accidental release of the contact. Even if a contact is inserted incompletely, the retainer guides the contact to the proper position and securely locks it in place.
Our unique compact panel lock is designed to prevent tangling with wires and accidental breakage because of handling.
