New UL Quick-Reliable “i-Clamp” IDC Wire Connectors
Product Announcement from Keystone Electronics Corp.
“i-Clamp” Insulation Displacement Connectors (IDC) for wire connectivity are the latest additions to Keystone Electronics full line of interconnect components and electronic hardware.
These new devices provide a tamper proof, quick and reliable method for wire connections without stripping wires. The “i-Clamp” IDCs cleanly pierce the wire insulation and make a secure connection in one easy step. No need for wire nuts or electrical tape.
The “i-Clamp” is available in 3 styles to accommodate all common wire connectivity configurations: The T-Series wire connectors are used for branching off a common wire run, allowing a connection without cutting or stripping insulation. The Two-Way Series connectors feature a unique dual channel that enables pre-assembly to a component or fixture. Once installed, wiring can be completed by simply attaching the other clamp channel to the existing wiring. The One-Way Series splices several lines together more securely than traditional methods of twisting wires together and holding in place with an electrical nut and tape.
Designed to withstand shock and vibration, these connectors can be used with wires from 10 – 22 AWG. Connectors have a copper contact housed inside a durable translucent polycarbonate which aids in the visual inspection of the connections and permits voltage usage up to 277 VAC, UL Listed File #'s E490622 & E490623
As part of its large family of interconnect components and hardware, Keystone Electronics manufactures a broad selection of connectivity devices providing custom stamping, machining and assembly services, as well as application Engineering Services for special design and product modification requirements.
