(Florence, KY) – Balluff’s new Insulation Displacement Field Attachable design, also known as a Insulation Displacement Connector or IDC provides the fastest method to add a connector to a cable. Tests showed only a few seconds over two minutes was necessary to do the job.
Insulation Displacement Field Attachable Compared with other methodologies, Balluff IDC’s can be attached to a cable five times faster than the solder cup method and two times faster than the screw terminal method — with only a pair of standard wire cutters necessary to do the job.
The components of the Balluff IDC are designed to provide the fastest and easiest connections. For example, only a small amount of torque is needed to secure the gaskets and ensure a proper cut into the insulation. Only 20mm of outer insulation needs to be removed. A bulkheaded gasket on the threading provides an IP67 protection rating for the field connection when properly installed. On final assembly, blades cut into the wire insulation for a solid contact with the wire, an improvement over pin contact methodology. Connector styles include straight and angled styles.
