TE Connectivity (TE) has introduced the Snap-Lug quick-disconnect series of power connectors.

These ruggedised power connectors provide a quick method of connecting heavy-gauge power cables to bus bars, relays, batteries, power cables and grounding devices. They are ideal for use in aerospace, military, marine and other harsh environments.

The connectors are colour- coded and keyed for polarity, which helps to prevent the risk of damage from accidental polarity reversal.

The connector is easy to install: it has a snap-on connection mechanism, and only requires a push to release, eliminating the need for a torque wrench. The self-locking connector can also withstand high vibrations and extreme temperatures, enabling the provision of continuous power in harsh environments. The shrouded design has no exposed metal, enabling a safe power connection.

System designers should specify Snap-Lug connectors to replace traditional terminal lugs when they require safe, reliable connectors which are quick to disconnect and provide a keyed locking mechanism.
