TE CONNECTIVITY Power Triple Lock connector comes with make first, break last (MFBL) functionality. Device provides an application-specific grounding design, which permits the ground connection to be established before power connections are made, and maintains the connection until the power connections are broken. The three-position, wire-to-panel or wire-to-wire device is based on a 6mm centerline pitch and is rated for 600 volts ac or dc, and limited to 12 amps maximum current, as its contacts accept wire no larger than 16 AWG (1.3 mm2). Device provide polarization and keying to help prevent connector mis-mating, an anti-snag design to help keep wires from snagging on the contact and housing, a locking mechanism to help secure connections when the cap and plug latch together, and a low insertion force design to ease the assembly process. http://www.TE.com
