250 series straight, miniature FASTON receptacle

Compact, low insertion force terminal fits where others do not

The 250 series straight, miniature FASTON receptacle terminal for applications where there is not enough space for a traditional, full size straight receptacle.

TE Connectivity (TE) introduces the 250 series straight, miniature FASTON receptacle terminal for applications where there is not enough space for a traditional, full size straight receptacle. Many power tools, small appliances, and other applications have very limited space for the quick connect crimp connections. The new 250 series straight, miniature FASTON receptacle provides a solution. This miniature, tin plated brass receptacle mates with a standard .250 x .032 tab and supports a continuous current rating of up to 7 amps, and an intermittent current rating of up to 14 amps. The smaller size supports competitive pricing, while the insertion and extraction forces are comparable to full size FASTON receptacles.

Features

  • The miniature receptacle fits within confined spaces, and -- as a straight terminal -- it typically costs less than a flag receptacle that might have been considered to dress the wire out of the confined space
  • Low insertion force of only 8 lbs or a maximum of 35.6 N is ergonomically-friendly, and this may help to increase line workers' comfort and productivity when making connections
  • The 250 series receptacle mates with standard .250 x .032 in tabs that are broadly used across a range of applications
  • Accepting 22-18 gauge wire, it supports a continuous current rating up to 7 A, and an intermittent current rating up to 14 A
  • The robust design meets UL 310 and CSA C 22.2 No. 153 requirements, and this agency recognition may aid OEMs the compliance of their end products
  • UL Recognized, File E66717

Applications

  • Power tools
  • Small appliances
  • Applications with limited space
