We offer an expansive range of tabs, pins, and receptacles for printed circuit board (PCB) termination. Whether terminating wires or components to a PCB, TE offers a variety of reliable, cost-effective solutions. Additionally, use of the associated TE application tooling helps to ensure consistency and efficiency in your manufacturing process with automatic or semiautomatic machines.
PCB Terminals and Components
Tabs, Pins, Receptacles, and Taps
PCB tabs include stud mount, printed circuit mount, wire crimp, testing, weld, and also adapters for quick disconnect applications. Our tabs come in either a multiple or single connection type and a wide choice of wire ranges are available.
PCB pins can be used for magnet, tinsel, flat, or regular wire applications and are constructed from brass, phosphor bronze and other metals. PCB pins can be used on a variety of wire ranges and come with a choice of insulation piercing, insulation support or non-insulation support. Pin diameter ranges from 0.64mm to 6.65mm.
PCB receptacles are used in wire-to-printed circuit board terminations. These terminated wires are plugged into the receptacle and may be removed and replugged as required. The receptacle has applications in all industries requiring wire-to-pc board applications both in new equipment and existing equipment. The purpose of its design is to allow field replacement without costly retrofitting. In new equipment, the pc board receptacle can be used to give flexibility in selection of wire termination, including tongue, fork, open barrel, and FASTON tabs. This receptacle also has the ability to replace screw and nut arrangements. In existing equipment, the receptacle is just as versatile and can be used for field replacement where the original wire termination remains the same, but the board layout changes. In essence, it allows you to plug the previously terminated wires into the new model without costly changes to wire termination tooling.
PCB taps are designed for the growing need for power to printed circuit board applications required in today's electronic industry. The taps provide a high current, separable connection to a pc board. The variety of available power taps allow for various installation schemes. The uninsulated tap and low profile tap can be used in bus bar pattern. The high profile and low profile yaps offer insulation protection from other components. The hugh current versions provide a greater power density option with current ratings from 10 amps on the 2 position in-line tab tap up to 40 amps on the 8 position dual tab tap.
The Printed Circuit Board Pin Receptacle provides a reliable and cost effective means of attaching components with pin contacts to a printed circuit board. Components are held in place without solder allowing for their easy removal from the printed circuit board for replacement or repair. Receptacle contacts are inserted and securely clinched to the printed circuit board by means of semiautomatic or automatic machines.
