The 917X series of surface mount Insulation Displacement Connectors (IDC) were developed to meet the harsh automotive and industrial market applications for connecting individual wires directly to a PCB ranging from 14 AWG to 28 AWG. This industry proven contact system has been tested to automotive levels of shock, vibration, and temperature cycling to prove their reliability and robustness. The simplicity of inserting a wire into the connector with a small tool allows a wide range of devices to be connected to the PCB without soldering. In SSL applications specifically, these connectors are used to bring power and signal onto the PCB or are used to daisy chain multiple boards together in a long string. While the IDC contact provides a gas-tight connection to conductor of the wire, the housing has been designed to grab the insulation of the wire to provide a positive strain relief even in the harshest conditions. In case of repair, the wires can be removed and replace up to three times.
The 9176 series accepts 18 AWG to 24 AWG wires with an insulation diameter ranging from 1.1mm to 2.1mm.
