4.8 series FASTON receptacles for multi thichkness tabs

Compact receptacles mate with either 0.5 or 0.8mm thick tabs

Simplify connections and shrink bills of material with 4.8 (187) series straight FASTON receptacle terminals that mate with quick disconnect tabs of various thicknesses.

TE Connectivity (TE) introduces 4.8 (187) series straight FASTON receptacle terminals designed to mate with either a 0.5 mm (.020 in) or 0.8 mm (.031 in) thick quick disconnect tab.  Many applications across various industries utilize 4.8 series quick disconnects. Often, a given product will have tabs of varying thicknesses. A higher current component or subassembly might have a 0.8 mm thick tab, while a lower current one might have a 0.5 mm thick tab. Traditionally, these various thickness tabs required different receptacles for mating. This presented assembly challenges. The new receptacles’ ability to mate with different thicknesses can reduce these assembly challenges for the harness maker and the OEM, while also simplifying design, procurement and logistics.
