KYOCERA AVX 9296-11X Series STRIPT vertical poke-home through-board contacts for 12–18AWG wire provides support design flexibility and reliably terminate 12–18AWG solid and stranded wire. Suitable applications include machine controls, building controls, LED lighting, and home appliances. Products are industry-leading, UL-approved, single-contact solutions that deliver improved performance compared to complete connector solutions, but are more economical due to the lack of an insulator, which saves on material costs. Devices feature high-force dual-beam box contacts that reliably capture both solid and stranded wires, provide maximum wire retention strength, and exhibit robust mechanical stability. It also delivers board space and/or height savings and supports flexible board placement, all which can be advantageous for today’s high-density electronic designs.
