CW mass terminated Insulation Displacement Connectors are designed to provide a highly reliable, long term, connection at every position. Our unique, patented TORQ-TITETM contact design creates a dual twisting and cantilever force between the conductor and contacts that provides an absolute gas tight connection. Other significant design advantages of the CW product includes ruggedness of construction, easy to assemble, integral strain relief options, choice of contact materials and plating finishes.
We offer a complete series of DIP, PCB, Socket, Header, Card Edge and D-Subminiature Connectors that are directly interchangeable with other industry standards. CW connector products are recognized by customers throughout the world for their availability, reliability and superior performance.
Military Specifications have been developed to define minimum acceptable performance standards for components used in today’s sophisticated military electronics equipment. Those components that meet the performance standards and physical parameters defined in these specifications are placed on a Government “Qualified Products List” (QPL); and they remain on this list provided ongoing and continuing “acceptance” tests indicate that the product continues to meet the specification requirements.
Mil-DTL-83503 establishes the physical, material, and performance standards for IDCs purchased for military use. These include physical dimensions, materials of construction, and performance standards–high and low temperature, thermal and mechanical shock, dielectric withstanding voltage, cable retention, contact retention, cable flexing, contact resistance, mating and un-mating forces, durability, and others. The specifications also describe test methods used to determine component acceptability for each of these standards.
Standardization of IDCs has been promoted and supported by the requirements of MIL-DTL-83503 and MIL-DTL-24308. These specifications have proven useful, not only by tending to increase the performance levels that IDC manufacturers strive to achieve, but by setting up general criteria that lead to predictable performance and interchangeability among various IDC types from various sources.
CW’s position of leadership in the industry is a direct result of our leading role in the development of these standards. Our engineers helped the Department of Defense establish the standards and our IDCs were among the first placed on the QPL.
