Application Tooling .156 Application Tooling for the MAS-CON IDC Sockets ranges from small manual tools for low volume prototyping to higher volume “controlled cycle” hand tools for medium to high volume applications. We also offer a pneumatic version hand tool as well. Also offered is a higher volume electric ECT too. For mass termination in high volume applications we offer our PPHT System with a pneumatic tool and harness board fixtures.
IDC Female Sockets Pancon .156″ pitch MAS-CON IDC Sockets allow a reliable and economical method to bring signals to a PCB using discrete wire or pre-notched flat cable. They are offered in end connector (CE), end tab polarized (CEP), through (CT), and thru tab polarized (CTP) in tin or precious metal plating. The connectors terminate to 18, 20, 22, and 24 AWG cable and are offered in 2 to 24 positions. The .156″ pitch also has a “High Power” connector with 18 AWG contacts which can handle up to 12.5 amps in 2 to 12 position.
Mating Male Headers MAS-CON .156″ pitch headers are through hole solder PCB headers designed to mate with the .156″ pitch female IDC sockets. The headers are offered in straight and right angle versions in 4 styles. The “Flat” series (MF) are simply flat wafer with either straight or right angle pins. The “Polar” series (MP) offer 180 degree polarization when mated with sockets. The “Locking” headers (ML) offer 180 degree polarization and “lock” the mated socket in place when mated. The Tab Polarized (MT) series offers 180 deg polaization and side to side polarization as well as locking the IDC socket in place.
