Get to know the Micro-MaTch connectors

Miniaturized connectivity

TE’s miniature Micro-MaTch connector family provides a proven reliable connection. Its unique contact-spring system helps prevent fretting corrosion by absorbing movements between male and female contacts.

A contact concept that inspires. The Micro-MaTch contact concept is essentially different from other systems available. By its design, the traditional failure mode in tinplated connections, fretting corrosion, is prevented. The separation of the two basic functions of the contact system (contact force generation and wire termination), enables the optimization of both functions and leads to relatively simple contact shapes. 

  1. The Micro-Match Contact System (English)

The Micro-MaTch contact helps prevent fretting corrosion, the traditional failure mode in tin-plated connections. Relative movements caused by vibrations/thermal expansion can be prevented so that a gas tight connection can make the Micro-MaTch contact spring system fretting corrosion resistant. See how the unique contact system works.

That is why a high contact force of 2N and tinplating is required. The unique spring contact can now work properly to avoid fretting corrosion.
