MTA 156 connector

MTA connectors can lower your applied cost.

Reduce the labor required for your harness or assembly. Mass terminate the wires with our MTA connector system.

Mass termination of wires provides the lowest applied cost because it drastically reduces the labor content of virtually any cable or harness assembly required. The MTA connector system is a wire-to-board and wire-to-wire system based on insulation displacement contact (IDC) technology. MTA 100 connectors have contacts in a single row on .100 [2.54] centers, while MTA 156 connector contacts are in a single row on .156 [3.96] centers. The design features wire feed-through capability for daisy-chain applications. Insulation displacement contacts (IDC) are used to terminate a wide range of conductor sizes. Ribbon cable can also be terminated when the appropriate receptacle assembly and strain relief cover are used. Header assemblies for board mount applications include right-angle and vertical mount products available in through-hole and surface mount configurations.
