Griplet®

AFCI’s new Griplet® connector offers a robust solution for miniature IDC Wire-To-Board connections. The low profile and compact design makes Griplet® an ideal connector where space is tight and ease of installation is important. Each connector has a height of 3.7mm and a footprint of 4.0mm x 6.1mm.

It is specially designed for a stackable pitch up to 12 positions, with common housings available to secure and protect terminated components. Griplet® offers a flexible solution with one part number accommodating multiple wire gauges. Redundant electrical connection points plus strain relief ensure stable operation through extreme temperature, shock, and vibration stresses.
