TE Connectivity – Connector prevents half-mating and back-out errors


New GRACE INERTIA 2.5 connectors from TE Connectivity (TE) feature a 2.5mm pitch and an advanced design which provides for more stable, reliable and durable connections.

The connectors’ inertia-locking mechanism eliminates the risk of product defects caused by half-mating, and helps prevent connectors from being disconnected during movement or transportation.

The Terminal Position Assurance (TPA) feature helps to ensure that the contacts are properly seated in the housing and provides an extra measure of protection against contact back-out. The new design structure also reduces contact insertion force by as much as 59%.

● Lanceless contacts prevent snagging or entanglement
