GREENVILLE S.C., 18 May 2011. AVX Corp. in Greenville, S.C., is introducing one-position 9176 series gas-tight wire-to-board connectors for attaching discrete wires to printed circuit boards in harsh-environment applications.The 9176 rugged board connector is a stand-alone surface-mount discrete wire IDC connector with an insulation strain relief system for secure, reliable connections without soldering. The connectors operate in temperatures from -40 to 125 degrees Celsius.The UL approved 9176 connector supports 18-24AWG wire termination where shock, vibration, high temperatures, and temperature cycling are design concerns. The single-position connector comes in different colors to match corresponding wires. Color-coding provides assemblers with a quick visual reference.

The 9176 connector has an insulation diameter ranging from 1.1 to 2.1 millimeters. Dual beam contacts support a 10-amp current. An optional locking strain relief cap acts as a termination tool in severe vibration. These connectors come from the manufacturer on tape and reel.

The connectors have phosphor bronze contacts with tin-over-nickel plating Insulators are made from UL94-V0 Nylon 46. For more information contact AVX online at http://www.avx.com/.
