Connectors Designed to RAST Standards
The TE RAST connector system features crimp and insulation displacement contact (IDC) solutions designed according to either RAST 2.5 or RAST 5 standards. RAST IDC connectors, including AMP multifitting connectors, AMP MONO-SHAPE connectors, and AMP DUOPLUG connectors, are designed for safe and fast automatic production lines, while RAST crimp products, including RAST 5 standard timer connectors, Positive Lock RAST 5 connectors, and FASTIN-FASTON RAST 5 connectors, are easily applicable in manual productions. Headers meeting the RAST standard are available in both vertical and right-angle configurations. RAST connectors are commonly used in household appliances, including washing machines, dishwashers, cooking equipment, and refrigeration.

RAST 2.5 IDC design with a through hole feature to support daisy chain or bus applications.
Headers are available in 2.5mm and 5mm pitch to meet either RAST 2.5 or RAST 5 standards.
IDC connectors that feature multiple connector versions within similar housing and using the same tooling. The product line allows high volume manufacture of extremely complicated harness designs.
Advanced in-line mating technology for components and contacts of PCBs. Available in direct and indirect versions.
RAST 5 crimp connectors with current capacity of 16A. Optional terminal position assurance (TPA) devices are available.
RAST 5 tab housings mating with FASTIN-FASTON 6.3mm tabs. Housings are compatible with most common RAST connector systems.
Housings designed to mate with a control, switch or PCB that has 6.35mm x 0.81mm tabs built on a 5 mm centerline. Uses popular Positive Lock Mark III receptacles.
RAST 2.5 IDC connectors suitable for edge mount and female header applications. Design can accommodate high production rates.
Designed according to RAST 2.5 standard, but with a 5.0mm pitch option to achieve a maximum current rating of 6A. Design can accommodate high production rates.
