Harsh Environment IDC

   The award-winning Torsion-Lok® wire connector is a harsh-environment IDC.
The award-winning Torsion-Lok® wire connector is a harsh-environment IDC.
The Torsion-Lok® IDC, winner of the PMA-Higgins Design Award, provides both insulation shear and a reliable connection in one motion. Initially designed for an automotive manufacturer, Torsion-Lok® IDC's feature high-deflection contact beams to withstand repeated mating cycles and harsh conditions including high vibration and temperature cycling. They are available in loose and reeled formats for #30 AWG through #14 AWG wire sizes. Also available in surface mount or through-hole formats.

Unlike rigid contact beam styles, providing only one-time use, Torsion-Lok® beams operate well under the base material's yield strength, thus allowing repeated mating.

Continuous cleamping provides a gas-tight interconnection without wire creep. Insulation is cut with wire insertion, eliminating pre-stripping.
