Magnet wire receptacles

Fully Automated, High Speed, Integrated Systems

How much faster is TE’s magnet wire solution vs. soldering?

Crimp directly to magnet wire to streamline manufacturing. There’s no need to pre-strip and no need for lead wire and soldering. Receptacles combining the insulation piercing design of AMPLIVAR splices and the mating interface of FASTON quick connect receptacles provide a method of quick, direct connection to magnet wire, eliminating the need for a separate stranded wire terminal connection. This increases production efficiency and helps reduce cost. The receptacles accept copper and/or aluminum magnet wire and produce a superior metal-to-metal compression crimp with excellent tensile strength. Both flag and straight options are offered to mate with FASTON tabs in various applications. Recent additions are flag types for use with tabs on hermetic headers in compressor motor applications. Also included are straight models with cavity retention barbs designed for stator applications.

Receptacles for Compressor Applications

Some models of these receptacles combining the AMPLIVAR splice and the FASTON quick connect are specifically designed for magnet wire connections in compressor applications. The AMPLIVAR splice can be crimped directly to the magnet wire, and the FASTON receptacle mates with the hermetic header tab to increase production efficiency by eliminating the need for stranded lead wires, stripping and soldering traditionally used in these applications.
