Pointe Claire, Canada, July 03, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components founded in 1968 by Robert Miller, recently announced that the company is now stocking reduced thru wire and junction box connectors from AVX.
Wire-to-Wire (WTW) connectors have been used in the industrial market for years with traditional 2-Piece (plug & socket) connector systems. These require crimp and poke wire terminations to connect discrete wires together. While these provide repeated pluggability and latching, they are often size and cost prohibited in applications where the wires may only need to be replaced once or twice during their life.
The reduced 9286-250 series of junction connectors from AVX expands on the already proven 9286 poke-home discrete WTW family of connectors, but in a smaller package size. Junction box connectors electrically connect each of the inserted wires together, similar to a branch or splitter application but with multiple outputs. The development of an active stainless steel spring contact eliminates the need for push button activation to insert and remove wires which offers a significant cost savings. The mechanical properties of this contact provide maximum wire retention across a broad range of solid and stranded wire gauges, making this connector very versatile in field installations.
Typical applications for these reduced thru wire and junction box connectors from AVX include industrial machine controls (motors, drives, solenoids, sensors, fans, pumps, etc.), commercial buildings (controls, security, fire and sensors), smart grid (meters, breakers and panels), and SSL/LED (fixtures, signage and streetlights).
