AMP MCP Interconnection System

High reliability for long term use

The AMP MCP interconnection system is designed for electronic and electrical power applications in passenger cars and commercial vehicles as well as harsh environment off highway vehicle applications. The AMP MCP contacts are two piece receptacle/tab designs with separate electrical and mechanical properties. This design enables excellent, reliable performance. The contacts suit customer needs for power connections in sealed and unsealed applications, wire to wire and wire to board applications, and high voltage or higher vibration applications and are available with a large connector and header portfolio.

CONTACT SYSTEM

AMP MCP Interconnection System

The AMP MCP contact design meets standardized tab sizes and interface requirements of the automotive industry. Each contact consists of a flat receptacle, which mates with a flat tab. Every contact has got multiple steel springs and a copper alloy body. The two-piece contact design means that the electrical and mechanical properties are separated offering maximum contact reliability on both functions. The contacts are available with a lance locking system or with a clean body design, either variant confirms terminal position inside the connector. One end of the contact body is crimped to wire and the other end mates with the matching tab. The closed spring has several functions and advantages for the complete contact system. For a fast and economic termination process, TE Application Tooling offers a vast portfolio of application equipment.
