MCON 8 Contact System

MCON 8 Contact System

Designed for harsh environments. TE recently released a new member of the MCON contact family – the MCON 8 contact system. With the MCON 8 contact system, TE has closed the gap to meet existing cavity and interface specifications of the automotive industry in areas such as cooling fan applications.

Where power and reliability counts. To withstand in harsh environments, TE added innovative design features like overstress protection of the contact elements, as well as a new surface technology to be compliant with high temperatures up to 180° C. The contact system is available as sealed and unsealed version from 2.5mm2 up to 16mm2 (sealed 16mm2 is planned). The MCON 8 contact system is compatible to the tab contact dimensions 8.0mm x 0.8mm / 9.5mm to 0.8mm / 8.0mm x 1.2mm and 9.5mm x 1.2mm. Redundant designed contact points ensure the electrical integrity of the MCON 8 contact system and makes it rugged and versatile.
