A Government and Defence client needed an effective solution that had to fulfil specific space and material requirements. The client was looking for a minimally invasive micro piercing connector that makes a mid-line connection. Upon connection, the device needed to remain engaged until removed.
Leveraging our automotive macro piercing technology we designed and manufactured two micro piercing connectors with thumb screw action for secure connection.
Less than one inch long, the micro-sized XEP and XEPA piercing connectors are ideal in environments where size and reliability of connection are essential. Features include the V shaped tip design for separating wire bundles and a .030″ pin plug that connects to any standard .030″ diameter socket. XEP features a straight contact angle and XEPA features a slanted contact angle. (XEP & XEPA shown).
