Applying MAG-MATE Insulation Displacement Connection (IDC) Technology to Aluminum Magnet Wire Applications

Abstract

A switch to aluminum (Al) magnet wire is on the agenda of electric motor manufacturers. Many fractional horsepower motor OEMs serving appliance and HVAC industries are evaluating a switch from copper to Al magnet wire to reduce costs. MAG-MATE terminals meet the challenge of making cost-efficient, reliable electro-mechanical connections to Al magnet wire.
