TE Connectivity’s Micro-MaTch cable assemblies now available from element14

Prevents fretting corrosion while offering a variety of wire-to-board and board-to-board interconnections for industrial applications

TE AMP Ribbon Cable

element14 has expanded their inventory with Micro-MaTch cable assemblies from TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity. These cable assemblies are the newest edition to TE’s Micro-MaTch connector series’ product portfolio. The Micro-MaTch contact spring system provides a fretting corrosion resistant solution, designed to limit movement between mating parts and establish gas tight connections, unlike tin-plated designs which wear more easily and quickly.

The connector utilizes an additional positioning spring in the female part that absorbs movements caused by vibrations and thermal expansion. This stops movement on the contact spot and allows a secure connection to form. The system reduces free motion by equalizing tight, positional tolerances. This also applies the high contact force necessary for tin-plated systems and offers robust housings with and without latches.

These cable assemblies can be used for a variety of applications across a wide range of industries. Uses for the automotive market, for example, include motors, radios, GPS, climate controls, navigation systems and airbag units. Other applications include production and material handling equipment, alarm equipment, building surface control, AV equipment, set top boxes and more. This sturdy and multi-functional product gives engineers the flexibility to build out the projects they imagined.

TE Micro-MaTch cable assemblies are available from Newark element14 in North America, Farnell element14 in Europe and element14 in Asia in a variety of position plugs and sizes.
