Advances in dishwasher design include quieter operation, lower electricity consumption, and more effective cleaning. TE’s range of power connectors and relays allow manufacturers to appropriately size components to match the new, lower power requirements. Additionally, our sensors help to ensure proper operation while our circuit protection devices protect system components, and our tubing products can help with wire management and protection.
The wiring harness interconnects the control board to the various components throughout the dishwasher, such as motors, heating elements, water pumps and valves, sensors, door locks, etc. A typical wiring harness would include power and signal connectors, terminals and splices, heat shrink tubing and labels.
Economy Power (EP) Connector
Economy Power (EP) II and EP 2.5 connectors offer two levels of mechanical and electrical reliability. A true locking latch prevents the plug housing and post header from vibrating apart. An optional Terminal Position Assurance (TPA) device helps assure terminal seating.
Universal MATE-N-LOK Connector
Numerous options include circular, flanged, bulkhead, sealed and colored housings in various materials (including Glow Wire compliant). Housings feature positive polarization, positive locking and rear cavity identification for easy, error resistant assembly.
Single Wall Heat-Shrinkable Tubing
Single wall heat-shrinkable tubing insulates, provide strain relief, and protects against mechanical damage and abrasion. Products range in flexibility from very flexible to semi-rigid and are available in a myriad of colors.
Dual Wall Heat-Shrinkable Tubing
Protect against moisture and corrosion with dual wall tubing, while insulating and providing mechanical protection. During installation, an adhesive or encapsulant lining melts and flows, creating a moisture-resistant protective barrier.
Whether you need to splice 30 AWG solid copper magnet wire or 4/0 stranded aluminum wire, we offer a solution. Choose from crimp, insulation displacement connection (IDC) or other types of splice technology applied manually or with semi- or fully-automated equipment.
Speed of application, uniform reliability, and low per-line cost. These advantages have made our FASTON connector products the industry leader in appliances. With 60+ years of experience providing quick connects, we constantly strive to introduce new and improved types.
RAST Compliant Connectors
Connectors meeting RAST 2.5 and RAST 5 standards are high quality solutions that can help reduce your applied cost while supporting industrial and appliance safety standards. The portfolio includes several sizes, colors, footprint layouts, locking and plating options.
