Quick Solution for a Complex Hook Problem

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).

Double Gripper? Twice as Effective…

The XK double gripper is designed for hard to make test connections of varying sizes and shapes. The narrow configuration allows stacking of the test connectors side by side for high density IC packages. The two gold-plated blades are retracted by a single stainless steel compression spring

All XKs purchased with factory installed leads (ex. AXK, 213XK) are made with stainless steel blades.

P25 Micro Hook

The P25 is designed specifically for narrow test contact areas. An ultra-thin blade and housing allows connector stacking and easier access.  The .025″ square pin allows for multiple .025″ square socket lead options to be easily attached.

The P25 test hooks can be purchased individually, as a set of 10 assorted colors or as sets with our kilo-color combinations for easy identification when multiple hook-ups are required.

XMR Micro Hook

An anti-rotational hook is just one of the features of this advanced new part. This new micro-hook features a narrow design that allows for multiple side by side hook-ups to delicate wire or components. A stronger, thicker and wider blade material is made to withstand high usage and provide positive, solid connections with each hook-up. The hook design ensures wire integrity and a hook bend of 180° provides a secure grasp of lead wire on both sides. A small wire exit hole on the plunger minimizes exposure of blade contact points and a stronger spring allows for a surer grip and longer lasting connection. The XMR hook is also available with factory installed leads.
