2.5 Centerline GRACE INERTIA connectors

Eliminate half-mating, and back-out errors

TE’s next generation GRACE INERTIA connectors with 2.5mm pitch, GRACE INERTIA 2.5, feature advanced design concepts to facilitate more stable, reliable and durable connection. The inertia locking mechanism prevents defective products caused by half mating and helps prevent connectors from being disconnected during movement or transportation. Terminal Position Assurance (TPA) helps to ensure that the contacts are properly seated in the housing and provides an extra measure of protection against contact back-out. The new design structure also reduces contact insertion force by as much as 59% during assembly.
