TE Connectivity Launches Next Generation ARINC 600 Press Fit Contacts

HARRISBURG, Pa. – April 18, 2017 – TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, recently extended its ARINC 600 portfolio. In addition to the already existing size 22 press fit contacts, TE now offers size 20, 16 and 12 power contacts as well as press fit quadrax contacts. The addition of these new sizes makes TE among the first in the industry to offer a complete press fit solution for ARINC 600 receptacle connectors.

“By adding new press fit power and quadrax contacts to TE’s ARINC 600 product portfolio, customers can now press fit entire ARINC 600 connectors to the PCB,” said Steve McIntire, senior product manager of global Aerospace, Defense & Marine at TE Connectivity. “This eliminates the soldering process, enabling applied cost savings for our customers.”

The new contacts complement TE’s Next Generation ARINC 600 receptacle connector, which combines stamped and formed contacts with a one-piece insert to reduce cost, size, and weight of connectors for a variety of applications including in-flight entertainment systems, air-to-ground communications, collision avoidance, and many other avionics systems.

For more information on TE’s ARINC 600 press fit power connectors, contact the Product Information Center at 1-800-522-6752 or visit te.com/arinc600.
