TE Connectivity Extends Micro-MaTch Cable Assemblies by Adding New Value-line

TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity, has extended its range of Micro-MaTch cable assemblies, by introducing a new Value-line. Building on the success of its Industrial Micro-MaTch, industrial-grade quality products for harsh environments, TE Connectivity’s new Micro-MaTch cable assemblies set out to meet the requirements for internal wiring of industrial products with lower demands on mechanical stresses.

The new economical Micro-MaTch Value-line cable assemblies are ideally suited for applications such as building surface control, home automation and alarm equipment, lighting and air and/or climate control units. With a cost-effective design that does not use gold-plated contacts, the Micro-MaTch miniature connector system saves space on the printed circuit board, yet delivers highly reliable, gas-tight and corrosion-free connections between contacts and insulation displacement contacts to help prevent wear-through of the plating layer. The new Micro-MaTch Value-line is in stock and can be delivered with minimal lead-time.

The TE industrial Micro-MaTch connector family was originally developed to meet customers’ needs for internal wiring able to withstand constant vibrations within industrial electronic products.
Available in a variety of wire-to-board and board-to-board interconnections, the Micro-MaTch Value-line contact helps prevent fretting corrosion. Relative movements caused by vibrations/thermal expansion between male and female contacts are absorbed by an additional positioning spring in the female part. By preventing movements on the contact spot, a gas tight connection can make the Micro-MaTch contact spring system fretting corrosion resistant.
