New 82-1 Harness Board Connector Makes Wire Testing E-Z!

In response to many customer inquiries, E-Z-Hook has developed a new product allowing for quick release of wires after testing.  This new design, our 82-1 series, is based off our popular 82-2 product line.

The 82-2 product has a bed of piercing nails allowing for testing of wire connections without requiring any wire stripping.  The clamp or lever holds the wire against the bed of nails, forcing the needles into the wire so that contact can be made through the insulation.

In many customer applications, the wire being used was already pre-striped. While pre-striped wire can be used with the 82-2, we recognized that the same “insulation piercing” needle bed wasn’t a requirement for positive connectivity. In talking with clients using pre-stripped wire an important feature was easy wire removal after testing. The 82-2 piercing design requires the clamp to be opened or released to free the wire and disengage from the nails. For pre-striped wire ends the nails aren’t needed to create a connection. The individual wires tended to get caught or stuck in the bed of nails, which lengthened the time requirements for the testing process.

“Voila,” the flat pad 82-1 product! We listened to our customer feedback and recognized we could provide a better solution specific to environments using pre-stripped wire. We designed a “flat metal pad” harness connector. This flat metal pad provides contact with the striped wire once the clamp is closed. Unlike the bed of needles, the wire removal from the connection is as easy as simply pulling on the wires. The clamp or lever does not need to be lifted to free the wire. When multiple  wire connections are being tested this new design saves valuable time.

The new harness board connector, 82-1, will be available at the beginning of January, 2016.  Picture coming soon!

Can’t find it? Let us customize it for you!

Using a standard product from our catalog, our alligator to banana plug patch cord we were able to accommodate a client’s need to run 115 volts with 11 amps and 220 volts with 7.0 amps through a patch cord by providing a larger gauge wire (14AWG)  in place of the standard 18 AWG.

Having various wire gauges in house we can quickly respond to our client’s needs and provide a customized product, made just for them.

At E-Z-Hook, you can have it your way.
