Snap-on power connectors addresses harsh transport applications

February 20, 2017 // By Julien Happich
Featuring a snap on/off self-locking design, the Snap-Lug Quick-Disconnect Power Connectors released by TE Connectivity enable the fast interconnection of heavy gauge power cables.

Voltage rated to 1500VAC, the connectors are designed to replace traditional terminal lugs with safe, reliable, quick-disconnect keyed locking connectors, without requiring any tool. As installation is achieved with a single piece that requires no washers or nuts, there is virtually no risk of foreign object damage or debris (FOD) occurring. Distributed by TTI in Europe, the colour-coded and keyed for polarity, Snap-Lug Quick-Disconnect Power Connectors also help to prevent damage caused by accidental polarity reversal. The connectors are self-locking, confirmed with an audible and tactile click and minimizing the risk of partial mating. Snap-Lug Quick-Disconnect Power Connectors can withstand high vibrations and extreme temperatures, preventing unintended disconnects and maintaining continuous power even in the harsh environments found in transport applications. A shrouded design provides a touch-proof connection with no metal exposed to prevent accidental shock incidents when under power. Specifications include up to 500 mating cycles; vibration resistance to MIL-STD-1344, mechanical shock to MIL-STD-810G, and flammability rating to UL 94V-0.  Operating temperature range is -65 to +150ºC.
