Power Connectors with 3-in-1 Locking
The POWER TRIPLE LOCK connector system delivers consistent, reliable power and signal connections with multiple integrated locking features. The POWER TRIPLE LOCK connectors are differentiated by their 3 complementary locking mechanisms, providing 3-in-1 reliability. The cap (or header) and plug latch together, the connector position assurance (CPA) device locks the cap (or header) and plug together, and the terminal position assurance (TPA) device helps ensure terminals are fully and securely seated. This system offers several optional application specific features, including connectors passing 750 °C glow wire testing and those meeting make first, break last (MFBL) grounding requirements.
