Overview

TAB AND RECEPTACLE CONTACTS

MCON

MCON is a series of contact systems commonly used for electrical and electronic applications for passenger cars and commercial vehicles. The contact design meets standardized blade sizes and interface requirements of the automotive industry.


Except the miniaturized MCON 0.50 contact system, all contacts follow the two-piece contact design strategy to separate the electrical from the mechanical performance.

 

The MCON contact series is available for sealed and unsealed applications. For a fast and economic termination process, TE Application Tooling is offering a vast portfolio of application equipment.
