New Horizontal Wire-to-Board Connectors for Industrial and Commercial Applications

The new UL-approved 9296-400 Series horizontal poke-home connectors have the industry’s lowest height profile for 18–26AWG wire, can also mate with 1mm-diameter jumper pins, are available with 1–6 pins on a 4mm pitch, and are rated for up to 600VAC/DC, 10A, and 130°C.
9296-400 Series

FOUNTAIN INN, S.C. (April 7, 2022) – KYOCERA AVX, a leading global manufacturer of advanced electronic components engineered to accelerate technological innovation and build a better future, expanded its line of wire-to-board connectors with the release of the new UL-approved 9296-400 Series 4mm-pitch horizontal poke-home connectors.

The new 9296-400 Series connectors are designed to enable the quick, easy, cost-effective, and reliable board termination of discrete 18–26AWG solid or stranded wires or 1mm-diameter jumper pins in a broad range of industrial and commercial applications. The series has a compact, high-temperature, and halogen-free SMT package with the industry’s lowest height profile for 18–26AWG wire and a UL94 V-0 flammability rating. It is available with up to six proven-robust, 2.5mm, tin-plated, dual-beam phosphor bronze contacts on a 4mm pitch and with UL94 V-0 glass-filled nylon housings in eight different colors. It is also available with an optional visibility window to enable the visual verification of full wire insertion and with optional pass-through holes instead of wire stops to enable mating with KYOCERA AVX’s 10-9296 Series 1mm-diameter jumper pins.

The new 9296-400 Series 4mm-pitch horizontal poke-home connectors support simple strip-and-poke-home wire insertion and twist-and-pull wire extraction, enabling easy factory and field termination, and deliver high repeatability, maximum mechanical stability, and superlative wire retention strength in a wide range of industrial and commercial applications including machine controls, motors, drives, solenoids, sensors, fans, and pumps, commercial building controls ranging from sensors to fire and security systems, smart grid meters, breakers, and panels, and LED bulbs, fixtures, signage, and streetlights. They are rated for up to 600VACRMS or VDC, 6–10A UL, 4–8A cUL, operating temperatures extending from -40°C to +130°C, and five mating cycles. Lead-time for the series is currently nine weeks.

“The new 9296-400 Series poke-home connectors add several new combinations of orientations, pin counts, pitches, AWG sizes, and current ratings to our already-extensive range of wire-to-board connectors for industrial and commercial applications,” said Joe Falcone, director of global marketing for KYOCERA AVX. “The new series is available with up to six durable, high-strength, and high-reliability phosphor bronze contacts with lead-free tin plating, which is three more contacts than most competing solutions, and like the rest of our connector line, can be customized to suit unique application requirements.”
