Copper alloy is used to construct 1241380-1 receptacle timer contacts, while steel is used for the top springs. Single-wire sealing is used in these contacts (SWS). These MCP 1.5K receptacle contacts have a mating and unmating force of 6 N, have a mating area of 1.50 x 0.60 mm, and take a wire size of 0.5 to 1.0 mm2; the exception to this is stock number 726-8938, which accepts a wire size of >1.0 to 1.5 mm2 instead. The MCP 1.5K receptacle contacts are also compatible with the Heavy Duty Sealed Connector Series (HDSCS) connector system.

HDSCS connectors are a part of the Heavy Duty Sealed Connectors Series manufactured by TE Connectivity and are designed for commercial and off-road vehicle applications. These HDSCS automotive connectors include housings made of a durable thermoplastic material designed to handle challenging and damaging situations and significant amounts of vibration. The sealing offers protection against dust and water equivalent to IP67 standards.

This sturdy structure guarantees a high level of performance, durability, and prolonged use. Applications for connecting wire to wire or a device are possible when using these HDSCS automotive connectors. The HDSCS connection housings are offered in various sizes, ranging from 2 to 18 ways, and they can accommodate AMP MCP 1.5K, AMP MCP 2.8, or AMP MCP 6.3/4.8K tab contacts and receptacles.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is The Difference In A Plug And A Receptacle?

Connectors are enclosures (i.e., shells) that house contacts with wires and are used on electrical wiring harnesses. Connectors are used on electrical wiring harnesses. At the contact termination, the electrical connection into the system is either a soldered connection or a crimped connection, depending on how it was made (which is removable from the connector using a unique tool). Both the shell and the insert could have a resistance to moisture or even an airtight closure. To ensure proper mating, the inserts in each connector have to be oriented in the same direction. Additionally, the shell or the insert typically has a keying function to prevent improper mating, which could result in a damaged connector or an electrical fault.

The 1930s saw the development of connector connectors and receptacles currently widely used on military aircraft. They became the model for the modern connectors classified as Military Standard (MIL-STD) and Military Specification (MIL-SPEC). Providing the appropriate connection connectors and receptacles for each reference designator of an electrical harness is one of the most challenging aspects of creating electrical harnesses.

There is a world of difference between a plug and a receptacle; be sure you don’t get the two confused. The term “receptacle” refers to a mating socket, whereas a “plug” refers to an electrical device that has protruding connecting pins that are meant to be inserted into a “receptacle.” The term “jack” can also refer to a receptacle connector. A receptacle will have mounting elements like a flange with holes so it can be attached to other objects. Every electrical harness will have a diverse selection of receptacles and connector plugs.

What does the entirety of this suggest? In layperson’s terms, this denotes that a corresponding connector receptacle will accompany each connection plug in the aircraft and that a corresponding connector plug will accompany every connector receptacle.

What is Timer Interconnection System?

The automotive sector makes considerable use of the large variety of contacts offered by TE AMP Timer. Each contact consists of a female receptacle that is joined in a pair by a flat tab. Two contact springs are used in the MT2, MT3, and JPT receptacles, while four contact springs are used in the SPT and MaPT. Because of the two-piece contact design, the electrical properties and the mechanical qualities are kept entirely distinct. A wire or printed circuit board is soldered or crimped to the end of the contact body at one end. With the appropriate tab, the opposing end of the contact body clicks into place.

The contact body is in charge of the electrical properties, and the top spring is in charge of ensuring that the contact force is maintained under adverse conditions and throughout the contact system’s lifetime. The decrease in contact force that occurs due to stress relaxation at elevated temperatures can therefore be reduced to a minimum. The steel-to-spring also has two locking lances attached to it for added security. These are used to ensure that the contact is held firmly within the housing.

Tabs and receptacles can be used in connectors that are watertight and those that are not watertight. AMP Timer connections can either be purchased as receptacle housings with several tabs or just one tab. The former variety is a free-hanging coupling in a wiring harness (group connection). The housings of the free-hanging coupling type can hold up to a hundred contacts each, and are secured in place using a different locking mechanism. The single lever or slide cam approach is typically utilized with multiway connectors (sequential insertion distributed along an angled path).

A single lever plug on the receptacle housing is engaged in one end of the multiple-tab housing when utilizing this method. After that, the connector is moved into its final position and secured with a latch. Regarding the location of the contact tabs within the housing, this system is tolerant of various configurations. One further benefit is that the contact system is insensitive to crooked insertion to a significant extent. This is a significant advantage. Even if the tabs are not perfectly straight, the contact geometry will still ensure a secure connection.
