HARRISBURG, Pa. – TE Connectivity in Harrisburg, Pa., is introducing size 20, 16, and 12 power contacts for the company's rugged ARINC 600 receptacle connectors for avionics, military, and marine applications.

TE also is offering press fit quadrax contacts to safe space and weight, and reduce the need for gold plating. These connectors are in addition to TE's existing size 22 press fit contacts.

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.

"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," says 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."
